36ers v Taipans, 18/3/22

The race to the wooden spoon is truly on!

Two teams enjoying disappointing seasons duke it out for some bragging rights as they try to get through the backend of the season playing some decent basketball.

McCarron needs to have a bounce back game, has been disappointing of late.

Think this will go down to the wire, 36ers by 3pts is my hot tip.

Zim took the piss last time. His presence is going to be sorely missed.

No Zimmerman means Pinder goes to the 5 who will have trouble against DJ unless DJ goes into his shell.

Jawai cannot play more than 15 mins a game it seems.

But we are missing Withers.

Honestly I think Cairns is a good chance.

This is basically an opportunity for CJ to trial line ups, nothing more.

Let Duffelmeier start as PG with McCarron at the 2, let Dech go to the 3 to guard Deng. Give Manny, King and Duffelmeier more time, if they cannot make the grade then no need to wonder and keep them for another contract.

Got myself decent ticket. Up front and personal... can only beat who you beat when you play.. tonight it's show time game on time to flex expecting to see game changers create sixer uptick .. sixers by plenty. As always who can stop DJ and Dech going to be big.. let's defensive pressure to let him feast...sixers by big margin...

What and the Sixers are? 5-12 team vs 4-12 team.

With Zimmerman out who torched us last time (as opposition bigs always do) we should be able to beat Cairns at home and end this five game losing streak.

Sixers by 2

No Zimmerman so watch the Sixers bigs continue to run dribble hand offs whilst Mccarron shows us how quickly he can pass the ball

Gonna go out on a limb. No Zimmerman doesn't hurt Cairns as much as it seems.

They can go to 5 out, switch everything defense against 36ers feeble offense and 6ers don't really have any muscle to punish them.

Bairstow to eat up boards, but Cairns by 8

What is going on in Cairns? Something is clearly rotten with this playing group, who appear to have given up, and some ago at that.
This club worked hard to build a culture of hard effort and punching above its weight. The past season and a half has not been anything close to that.
The club's loyal fans deserve a lot better than this

DJ hasn't given a shit all season. Adelaide would be hoping he doesn't pick up his option.

Pinder trying hard, had good season, Kuol for a 1st year done good. The rest are nbl1 players most time. I hope cairns are getting some nbl money from the over spending clubs or they are going to be crap continuously.
Good result for Sixers, have certainly better players than cairns, cj laying down what he expects is a good sign.

Mitch and tad combined for 30 plus point game. Worth persisting with this combo.. CJ is prepared to experiment and is finding out who can't and can....DJ was quiet but drew best defender...much much more to offer..

Absolute rubbish there. DJ was the best +/- player for the entire game. They looked terrible when he wasn't out there. He actually put some effort in defense. He was frustrated in offense because it took the team 3 quarters to be able to pass the ball inside against the smallest team in the league as a result his offensive output was poor.

Great to see Mccarron turn up for his first game of the season.

Why would any emplmployer continue to pay an employee with the attitude and effort level that Dusty currently has.

Not an Adelaide fan but still annoyed as hell just watching him knowing he gets payment for that.

Couldn't believe that in the last minute Hannahs hogged the ball instead of trying to get it to the kids who never see court time to get their first NBL points.

If you cant get minutes and score against the bottom team in the league he should just go home and get out of everyones way.

Hannahs is just a flat out hog who can't guard.
His body language and facial expressions give the impression he can’t wait for the season to end.
I’d end it now for him and send him back. He’s not playing import minutes. Give his minutes to guys who actually want to represent the jersey.

Hannahs is in a difficult position.

He is effectively auditioning for his next role.

Hopefully MacDonalds is hiring at season's end.

2/9 shooting at 22% + 3 rebounds in 28 minutes is not delivering GOLD.

I'm not certain Withers has been given enough time or opportunity to show what he can produce, Hannah’s is another JVG typical selection, kings fans know all about his team selections. Imo CJ will have a lot input into next seasons team.

Mithc pretty good at 2, not much good at 1.
Tad not tooo bad at 1.
CJ pretty good, gave them a spray.
The shooter pushed Dusty out the way, but CJ still not happy with the way Dusty guarded that (and others)

Good to see McCarron actually pull his finger out he should be averaging 13-14 ppg for us not the pathetic 6.5 ppg he was coming into last night.
