Now just wait a minute

Righto, what the hell is going on.

I thought Perth would lose at least two of their last 3 games before heading back home. But they won all 3. Now they're garbage at home like I thought they'd be on the road.

They'll be 14-8 after the Kings game. Phoenix in 5th are 12-9. It's back on baby!?! I think.

Some much needed spice brought back into the competition the last couple nights.

Yes and from a mug punter like me who has always appreciated what Perth has done but really want to see them get beat, it's beautiful. :::)))

It's more they can't live without Norton forever.

Geez these press conferences with sco mo are hard to watch .
He just said Michael Frazier was missing and he's one of our best perimeter defenders.
It feels like we are putting him out.
There are plenty of people who would want to coach the best franchise in nbl history.

Showed some real restraint in tonight's presser though considering some of the asinine questions put to him.

They're missing Norton and Frazier. The last 2 games shouldn't be overly surprising. Norton is a flat out competitor and team man. Frazier adds valuable depth.

I don't get how people are still sleeping on Norton. Cats fans especially.

Norton is Perth's third most important player. He's not as far off second as many would think.

Yep, he's a vital part of the team, no wonder we're struggling a bit without him.

If I had to (hypothetically) chose to omit an otherwise fully-fit player, and my choices were Law or Norton, it would be far tougher choice than many think.
And against SOME teams, I'd probably choose to sit Law, and trust our team D to keep us in the game.

I'd sit Law in a heartbeat. He and Cotton have a pretty big overlap in what they bring to the team, whereas Norton contributes in completely different areas.

only problem with sitting Law is you take away the only guy trying to rebound for us
