SEM v CNS May 28

Gee.... Phoenix go into this game hotter than a MasterChef chilli. Cairns not loosing games by too much, but you would think their motivation for the season is evaporating faster than a beer on a hot day.

This one might blow out, but SEM are like not to risk injury. 3rd spot locked in like a chastity cage on a cuckold so there's no need to smash the Taipans, just get control of the game, play some sensible basketball and a win is a win. No need for a % boost. Like we used to say at Uni, if you got 52%, you studied 2% too much, if SEM get a 10 point win, they've scored 9 points too much.

Hard to pick against the green machine tonight

Yes Mitchell for all his critics has done very well with this team. As Jack says, 52% is enough. SEM by 9.

Don't know why Cairns decided to go for Jois... Maybe he didn’t cost much? Surely they could’ve gone for a Turner(Bendigo), or Dain Swetalla (Nunawading)... Even if they would’ve been considered imports, wouldn’t have hurt to try them... Maybe they could’ve offered more than Jois

Mitchell signing for another season is a joke. The guy is a spud of a coach. What's his background ?

Mitchell has done well, the coach didn't lose this game the players did and Djeric had one of his two good games a year, actually one good quarter where the rubbish he chucks up goes in. Well to mike Kelly against his old mate.

Being the #2 seed feels good all of a sudden.

Cairns had nothing to loose with trying out Jois for a few games. If it had been a success, then easy to make offer for next - at least they now know not to spend real money on him next season. Turner or Swetalla would only have been options for this season with no real future....

Broekhoff with six steals and yet -15.

+/- has always been crap Isaac. Anyone that pays attention to that is really not understanding the stats as you pointed out.

Disagree. +/- is a good metric. There will be the odd anomaly but any smart person understands that.

It's crap, to many differentials in plus/minus. It can be a guide but not that reliable.
