The Kings remind me of the 97 Tigers, who famously won the title after a 3-9 start
Like those Tigers, Sydney made an import change mid season and have been almost unbeatable after the change- Tigers won 17 in a row, Sydney won 13 in a row.
I think Sydney are now 12-1 with both Adams and Clark playing
Like those Tigers, Sydney just has weapons everywhere.
I remember Goorj likening playing those Tigers to the whack-a-mole arcade game. Someone's gonna get you. If not Gaze, then Copeland, and if not Copeland then Timmons, and Bradtke's still there putting in his 20-25 a game.
It's like that with Sydney. Adams subs out, and Clark takes over. DJ could go off for 30 (like he did against Illawarra recently). Martin and Maker floating around- bigs who can score from anywhere. And Cooks is cleaning everything up and making it difficult at the other end.
I hope the JJ's can squeeze out a Game 2 win in front of their home fans, or even better with both and force 5. That would be another epic moment for Tasmania and another piece of NBL history.
But most likely result for mine is a Kings sweep. Injuries are more likely to beat them than the JJ's.
