Brisbane v Sydney May 13

Well.... the table changes form game to game, so take a screenshot and at the end of the round see how all the seats at the table have changed. It's musical chairs and so far only Cairns don't have a chair, with New Zealand and Adelaide looking to sit on the lap of others.

Sydney lost third spot last night, but can reclaim it like a trench in the Somme with a good win. A loss would mean Gorj's boys could re-enter the top 4. For Brisbun, well they just need to win. So like a midget at a urinal, which team will step up tonight?

The season is 2-1 to the Kings and will match up with the Bullets quite closely. Brisbane will need to play well to keep up with them and could pray for a plague of cane toads to stop the game early, but there's no Duckworth Lewis in the NBL and no more leaky stadiums.

Gee, both teams have good reason why they should win, so this game will be lost on the small things like turnovers and sloppy plays. Every 3 point shot will count. I'm just thinking that the Bullets might just keep their season alive....

I can't wait to see Wigness at the starting point guard spot, said nobody ever.

Hoping the Kings win to put Brisbane supporters out of their playoff-aspirant misery for yet another season.

Yes both teams have reasons to win and lose, Brisbane new import should help bullets, Cooks back should help kings. Brisbane play better team and being at home should win this.

Brisbane by 8.

How many minutes Cooks plays and what impact he will have will be interesting. As long as him playing puts Kickert to the bench.

Do you seriously think Cooks will be a contributor after so long off and not match fit?

Cooks probably not a lot but he is still reasonable quality re playing team so that should help. As the nbl match preview says, while Casper and Martin are taking all the shots, you will win nothing.

I think the kings have lots of upside it just depends on how the use the players at their disposal. With Cooks coming back and the fact Martin is playing the 4 this isn't ideal as Cooks didn’t have a good time playing the 3 as it ruined spacing. Furthermore if you reduce Moller’s minutes you lose probably their best defender outside of Casper. Perhaps they should try Moller in the 2, he has been getting a lot of assists, he usually defends the guards and this year and the ball moves well when he has played point forward when Martin was injured. That way you get Cooks in the 3 to rebound, Martin in the 4 and hunter in the 5 with Casper. They shouldn’t be out rebounded.. Bruce, Newley, and Kickert off the bench would work well together.

However don’t think any of that will happen. I expect 45 shots from Casper and Martin, and a win for Brisbane.

Frankthetank, mate more of your comments please. What you have said is smart, can't see the Kings doing it though.

@Jack Toft.
Good review as always Jack.
Both teams could win. Typical in the NBL it seems for most games this season.
As usual, It all comes down to shooting.
Put it in the hoop. You win.
Who does it best tonight? Toss a coin?
It came up Tails.
Brisbane win

Funny you should say that as the odds have it as a coin toss as well.

Is Daniel Kickert the most unlikeable player ever?

Who would you rather have a beer with - Daniel Kickert or Simon Mitchell?

Well Mitchell had never started a fight against the Filipino national team so maybe him.

This looks all too hard for kings now. Done well to hang around, can't see us winning another game.

You're right. But they supposedly shoot better too

You would think that Santamaria must either be Martins agent, or he is getting a referral fee for Shane Heals new agency with a headliner of Martin as his first client.

Honestly I agree Martin can score but he can't defend to save himself. It’s all good onwards and upwards.

So how did it go...Forde another Gleeson protege! How's this coaching gig going for him. Totally out of his depth.

Frank and #991 both right. Forde thinks he's got the answer, it’s a shambles.

Imagine being Martin someone with genuine NBA experience and all you do is sit at the 3 point line while Jordan Hunter gets post up isos...

Martin is a bruise free player, he was brought in as a five but not lifted to the standard of Mooney.

Frank send your regime in, kings need some knowledge.
