Sixers v Snakes May 4
Ah.... hello there.
Sixers have a must win game against a team who can surprise their opposition when they want too. Josh Giddey missed the Josh Fight in Lincoln NE, but he was too busy getting back to back triple doubles, the youngest Aussie to do so. Can he make it a trilogy of triple doubles? or will be Empire Strike Back? What Jedi mind tricks has Master Henry got in store tonight? "This is not the foul you are looking for"
Cairns is a sunny 28 degrees, so The Taipans will feel like they are landing on Hoth, and without Cam Oliver could struggle to warm up in the front court, where Sixers centre, and part time Wookie, Isaac Humphries could thrive. You know it's not wise to upset a centre, but sir, nobody worries about upsetting a guard.
I'm thinking the Sixers have the higher ground and with the home team beaming with confidence deserve to go in a favourites to the game, may the fourth be with them.
