SEM v SYD Apr 22

Huge news out of SEM with charges against Creek dropped. Just when he was learning how to craft a shiv out of a toothbrush and expecting to share a cell with The Missing Link, some good news comes through. So with 3rd spot on the line, will SEM be breaking rocks on the chain gang? or will Sydney do a break and jump over the Phoenix?

Both teams are well matched and in the series Kings are up 2-1, but with a -1 break. It's up to both teams to press their advantage and neither will be wanting to drop the soap.

Load up the rubber bullets this will probably be the match of the round and I wouldn't be surprised if Mitch drops 35 like a boss. No tips from me, I don't want to jinx either side

Old man Newley to replace Didi, I don't see how kings can get this, Creek a free man, should now start. While kings still have talent I just can’t see a win, SEM by 12.

Creek should be in starting line up.

Yes Creek should start, SEM have lost two in a row, they cannot afford to start bad, get the foot on the throat early, figuratively speaking.

Absolutely Creek and the boys need to lay the smackdown early on Sydney.

I tried so hard to get a Shawshank Redemption joke in there, and there were plenty of Blues Brothers ones as well, some inappropriate, but "I have to remind myself that some birds aren't meant to be caged"

Looking forward to some actual basketball feels like weeks since the last game. Ware dropped an NBL season-high 40 in their last game winning both games last round, SEM lost both of their's including a flogging by the Kings in Sydney which included 29 points from development player Izayah Le'afa, a record high for a DP perhaps?

Kings by 5

If Wetzell or Moore could make a layup SEM would be looking much better.

SEM defence almost non existent. Then due to foul trouble Karena hits the court and takes defence to a level not seen since the glory days of Ben Allen.

Martin is a nice player no doubt. But the way he was bringing up the ball and crossing up Karena was social league on Tuesday type stuff. Appalling defence by SEM. Are they on permanent downward slide? Karma Creek?

Nothing worked foe SEM, ball won't drop and defensively woeful. When marking Creek, Moller did a fantastic job. I’m not certain how Sydney keeps losing players and keep winning. Hunter looking like a cross between Longley and Bogut.

Don't worry Zodiac. Dench was in my thoughts but I was working backward chronologically. Axel's game resembled a lamp post which could knock down threes like Steph Curry.

Yeah good one Creek hitting everything. The SEM Phoenix are a basket case. Mitchell should be done and seasons end. To many oldies there. Gibbo retire please and don't join the Jack Jumpers. Gliddon clearly past it. Pineau almost a season out? CYA cobber. Moore 1/6, 4 O boards, 1 T/o and 5 FOULS. Bye Bye.
New coach and a clean out. Hopefully they will recover. Good thing that SEM have investors cos it's time to put your hands in your pockets guys. Not all beer and skittles eh.

Sydney got the luxury of bringing in players of the caliber of Newley, Moller and Bruce. SEM in their second year have not got this depth yet.
