Breakers v Sixers Apr 26

Unfortunately this game looks like a dead rubber.

Breakers narrowly went down to the Snakes earlier in the round, and the Sixers not so narrowly to United.

Adelaide are up 2-1 in the series, but a R7 drubbing by the Webster Boys still has the blood being mopped up in John Cain Arena. Can the Breakers get the W and the series? Humphries is back for the Sixers and while 2 points is better than none, 3 blocks is what we want to see while eating our popcorn.

Nothing but Pride on the line this game, but it won't be a disappointing game.

We looked a lot better recently with McVeigh playing all of Crockers minutes when he was injured. There isn't much point in playing Crocker anymore, he has no upside and it isn’t like we are going to sign him for next year. His boneheaded plays cost us big in that 3rd quarter. Henry may as well give his minutes to McVeigh to let him develop further and encourage him to stay next year.

I’m not sure what to make of Paul, he doesn’t quite seem to have enough playmaking ability for my liking to be a top level import. However, I don’t know if it is because he isn’t a fit for Henry’s coaching.

Frustrating game to watch as a Sixers fan. Delaney always plays well against us.

Shamir owned Henry again. Corey Webster off the bench made the Breakers second unit very potent. And Henry, well in the second half he took the ball out of Giddey's hands and made Dech and Crocker the playmakers, and for some reason stopped isolating Humphries down low who had every Breakers bit in foul trouble.

Shamir seems to have got bigdog’s memo about transition. And it worked for them.

WMW shows flashes of being an NBA player. But he is really inconsistent. Even within a game. His 3 ball is also really poor and doesn’t have a good pull up game, which hurts the Breakers in their constant on-ball offence. Once Tai Webster is back the Breakers are going to be hard to guard, there’s just too many good shooters on the floor.

The only reason I can see Pinder gets good time and chances is he's on good money. Congratulations to Giddey, great for a young player.
Sixers got get quality import point guard, and high scoring two guard that can play defence. Find an Aussie that can play 3/4 and they will look a lot better.

Brandon Paul only got 7 shots and some shots of those he forced, is that his fault?
Jack McVeigh needs to be kept to one position [probably a 3] to give him a chance to settle defensively because at that end of the floor he is not moving at all and seems to be getting worse week by week [ he is not the only one ]

For those thinking Adelaide are 'still a chance' to make the playoffs because there are 'plenty of games left'.

Sydney and SEM are both 14-12 with 10 games left, having better than a .500 record.

Let's say they are kind and win only 4 of their next 10 games.

Thats' 18 wins required to make the playoffs.

Adelaide are 10-16 also with 10 games left. They would need to win 9 out of their final 10 games to make the playoffs, I say 9 because our for/against is the league worst so we would lose against any tie win/loss.

I don't see them winning 5 of their next 10 let alone 9.

Season is over.

I sincerely hope the suggestion that Pinder is highly paid is incorrect.

The Breakers will overtake Brisbane and Adelaide before season ends. The question is can they catch the Hawks (tough but possible) and SEM (tough and less likely). Their next 3 are winnable given they've taken Perth to OT and beaten them at RAC, their games against United have been close to date, and Tai Webster could be back on Wednesday.

As for the 36ers, another disappointing season. This one looked like we may see them make the playoffs with the way Giddey and Humphries have delivered above expectations, but Henry, Paul and Pinder (hair notwithstanding) have been underwhelming.

^Lovebroker is right. More to the point, the 36ers have been out of the playoff race from about 4 weeks ago.

The top four looks set, with a very remote chance NZ will sneak in. For any team outside the current top four to make playoffs, they'd need to win 70%+ of their remaining games. None of them have looked capable of that, since the end of February.

I rate NZ a remote chance because I think the prospect of a return to Auckland could give them the morale boost they need to deliver that sort of win rate - a bit like the 36ers' run to the finals in 2014/15. And there's always a chance one of Sydney or SE Melbourne will implode, letting NZ in. NZ will play each of them twice in the run home from here.

Re Giddey - he's good. My question is whether having an 18 year old, no matter how good, running your offence for the season, playing 32 minutes per game, is ever going to win you an NBL title?

Has it happened before? I can't think of a championship team with such a young point guard playing so many minutes. But I haven't gone back through the records to check. Anyone remember one?

Is it a coincidence that both last year's Hawks and this year's 36ers have tried this experiment and experienced poor seasons?

Exactly, for all Giddey talent, he's not winning you games down the stretch, if anything it’s the opposite.

Bottom end of the play offs still open, kings got NZ in NZ twice then go straight to Perth plus a home and away game against United. They could lose all five of those games.

On paper at the beginning of the season the 36ers looked good in terms of local talent, but imports are almost always tough to predict if they've never played in the NBL before.

Sunday Dech was on the up at Wollongong, Giddey was a player any team would've taken, Humphries and DJ both in the top echelon of big guys in the league and Pinder was coming off playing in Europe. But again the importance of great imports was shown. Can't blame it all on coaching, I think they mostly scouted the imports badly.

Yep, 5% or less chance NZB make it. But if they can win their next 3 then get home, they could go on a tear. However, and I've said this since before Patterson went down, they will miss out by 1 game and it will be due to the Fatterson effect.

On paper should be making the playoffs.

We have 2 elite bigs, one of which is the second highest paid local, so we aren't scrimping on the roster.

We have average to above average back court of Giddey and Dech, both with good attributes.

The imports was a bit of a mess, it became clear just a few games in that Sloan was not comfortable playing second fiddle to Giddey. If the Sixers had a 'deal' with Giddey and his reps, then Sloan should have been moved much much earlier.

I think the coaching is a big issue, the subbing looks off and unexplainable, BP has very little structured for him, yesterday they went away from Humphries.

I fear Henry will be retained as he has an injury card to play at season's end review.

We have a very solid 7 man rotation (when you add McVeigh and Crocker), which is not as bad as that sounds in a 40 minute game.

No I don't think Crocker is an all star but I think he is decent for a budget level import, we could do much better and we could do worse.

Pinder coming out Europe, yes bench players in the Swiss league, it's nbl1 standard, probably got him a very decent pay packet. Crocker for an import as a two out ten, they would have been better chucking games into McVeigh and should from not on. You bring in imports to take control when required, Paul hasn’t and don’t look like it. Lot of the subbing looks all pre planned, if true it’s wrong. The coach has a bit to answer for but imo his team was never finals bound and deserves his next season.

" On paper should be making the playoffs."

Pre-season I had this argument with people - On paper we should be close to the bottom.

“We have 2 elite bigs, one of which is the second highest paid local, so we aren't scrimping on the roster.”

Having two “elite” players on a team is meaningless if every other team does too - Adelaide might have a good front court but the reality is the only two teams with equal or less star power than Adelaide are Hawks and Cairns.

“We have average to above average back court of Giddey and Dech, both with good attributes.”

That's not above average. Yes they have played better than expected but compare with other back courts - look at Perth with Cotton, look at Sydney with Ware, Cairns with Machado etc.

Adelaide also have a lot of very average/below average players on the bench - they have zero depth!

“The imports was a bit of a mess”
Yes - my preseason prediction I said they got the imports wrong and it would cost them because they needed two stars. Not one star, two stars. They started with zero and now perhaps have one.

Look at the rosters on paper - tell me who is worse than Adelaide?

Hawks/Cairns maybe?

NBL is stacked, having DJ/IH/Giddy doesn’t get it done.

Adelaide are still achieving a bit better than anticipated to be honest.

Pre-season I had this argument with people - On paper we should be close to the bottom.

I had them 3rd or 4th place because finally we have a decent mix of offensive DJ, IH, Giddey (playmaking rather than shot making) and defensive horses (IH and Dech).
Yes I know Teys, Mud, Hulland and Dillon are sub-standard but every team not named United has those.

Having two "elite" players on a team is meaningless if every other team does too - Adelaide might have a good front court but the reality is the only two teams with equal or less star power than Adelaide are Hawks and Cairns.

Having 2 elite players 'should' be good enough to get you in the top half of the ladder, but our import selection was a let down I concede that.

At the beginning of the season everyone including the bookies had Perth missing the playoffs as they had one Elite player and a bunch of serviceable players, just as no one was to know how sub-standard our imports would be, no one knew how good Mooney was going to be and how Blanchfield would be a bit more consistent. So at season's start I would have had Adelaide in front of Perth, Hawks, Brisbane and Cairns.

That's not above average. Yes they have played better than expected but compare with other back courts - look at Perth with Cotton, look at Sydney with Ware, Cairns with Machado etc.

Yet we have done better than NZ (Websters) and Cairns (Machado ad Djeric), they get a lot of props for little success.

Again I concede we are bottom 3 so I am not beating my chest.


Adelaide also have a lot of very average/below average players on the bench - they have zero depth!

Virtually every team has a big drop off after the 7th Man, except United. Perth are second, after Steindl and Wagstaff it drops off to Jervis, Wani Boluk, Shervil and Travers.
Sydney before injuries had Bruce, Moller, then drops off to Kicks, and DP level players.

Look at the rosters on paper - tell me who is worse than Adelaide?

Hawks/Cairns maybe?


On paper not knowing what we know right now I would have had Adelaide in front of Perth (loss of White, Kay, Martin), Hawks (virtually new untested together), Brisbane (no notable improvement over previous year, Froling and Drmic did not move the needle) and Cairns (big drop in talent after the starting 5).

NBL is stacked, having DJ/IH/Giddy doesn't get it done.

We will never know but I wonder how we would have went without the IH injury and got BP earlier.

We probably wouldn't suffered the Perth, SEM and NZB second half fadeouts. So we could have been 13 wins just off that.

How should having two elite players guarantee top four?

Creek & Broekhoff

How do you squeeze all of those into the top four? Machado and Oliver would be considered two elite players on paper as well.

Thanks Gus - I did remember Perry but couldn't recall his age. He did run the point that season, and played 30-35 minutes per game. And Brisbane did win the championships that year. I checked and reckon he was 19 that season, so a young point guard can take a team to a championship. If they have a Leroy Loggins in his prime as well. Maybe that's where the 36ers went wrong, after all - no superstar.

Anon - thanks, I forgot about Heal's early years in the league. He was 18 when he joined Geelong in the 1989 season. But Geelong were terrible in that season, and the one after it.

NZ have struggled more than anticipated. SEM I had top 4 and people criticised me - maybe I had good luck on that one.

Perth I had top 4 because how can you assume they won't get it done when they do year after year? It’s like when everyone underrated spurs year after year during the Tim Duncan period. Spurs with Duncan = Perth with Cotton.

Koberulz lists out pretty well that just about everyone has a few elite players.

Given Melbourne, Sydney, Perth, SEM being what they are - as expected by a lot of us - yes NZ underwhelming but will probably have a run and finish 5/6th, Brisbane being reasonably close to where Adelaide are talent wise, why are we criticising Adelaide for doing worse than expected?

Seems like they’re doing pretty much on point?

I still can't believe Harvey Lister head hunted JvG for the Kings job. It was either a fabricated story in a club media release to stroke JvG's ego (surely he applied at the very least, after being in the NBL wilderness for so long) or I really don't know. First decision = appoint Gaze as head coach, Tigers family for life!

Sixers hiring JvG is doubly worse though since it was clear what was going on in Sydney at the present time and not buried away in the past like what happened in Brisbane.

Because Adelaide fans are about team success, not individual success ala Jeff van wrong again

Interesting how firm Henry is on starting Pinder (though he hasn't in every game of the season). Crocker and Humphries back, and still didn't want to mess with Pinder's role, when you think any of those two or McVeigh gave enough bench impact to elevate someone.

What about how he's basically never played Mudronja, then started him v Perth in Perth, then basically hasn’t played him since. Poor kid must be doing his head in.
