36ers v Jack Jumpers.Thurs.13/10/2022

Only a few tickets left, not many. Most likely a sell out and that's been a long time.
If 36ers play a little bit like v Phoenix Suns, then it is a Sixers win.

Will 36ers be riding high on the euphoria of their successful trip, or will they be tired after returning home only a few days earlier

Could go either way.

I'm tipping the former, 36ers by 15

I have watched a couple of JJ games this season.

Their offence is god awful, they miss a closer like Adams. Their offence dies as soon as Kryslovic and Kenyon have the ball.


Their defence is good at times like the 4Q against Brisbane but their defensive efficiency is 116, league worst (small sample space granted).

Even if Adelaide play their usual indifferent defence, we would still blow them off the floor offensively.

Only Adelaide's game day fitness will defeat Adelaide.

I respect Tasmania and what they are too much to be so bullish in game 1. The Jackie's are a few games in to the season proper - that’s an advantage.

The pessimist in me says a well drilled team and McVeigh going crazy could put a clumsy 36ers team to the sword.

Adelaide can be as good as anyone this year, it’s just about chemistry, groove, getting the style right with offence and defence and just getting into the season proper a little bit.

If there are teething problems, it’ll be disappointing but no worries.

Sixers biggest risk is turnovers. Aside from McCarron, the ball-handling is still average at best, so the JJs pressure defence could cause enough chaos to keep them in it. Based on their pre-season encounter though, if the Sixers stay focussed and play a bit of defence on Doyle, they should get the W.

Agreed.

Reliance on McCarron is the 36ers only potential weakness I can see.

He's their only quality point guard.

If he stays healthy and out of foul trouble each game, the 36ers will do well.

They have the worst defensive rating in the league ATM, in NBL22 Breakers territory, so they need to fix that. You'd back them into improve both sides of the ball with Magnay, McDaniel and Steindl back. Until then, got to pinch some wins!

- living by the 3 will win you big games, and also bring painfully frustrating losses.

- No team can afford to slacker defensively in this league.

- Low post play is seemingly nearing extinction in the NBL

- Bruton could actually use his bench more.

- Roth knows how to create a team culture that buys into and aderes to a consistent game plan. JJ's play hard for 40 minutes.

I too find jacking up threes all game boring but I will put up with it because there is an art to the movement of the ball to create that open-ness and I love the NBL.

I miss the old days where we gave the ball to the post and let the guys operate NBL - Dorge, Borner, Rees, Dozier, Willie Simmons etc and NBA - McHale, Parish, Kareem, Ewing, Robinson, Karl Malone etc.

In the grand scheme of things this loss means nothing. I'd be more concerned if I were a Melbourne United fan than an Adelaide one.


I am willing to give a little grace for the jetlag and DJ's injury and trying to find where he now fits given he potentially the 4th option on offence now.

The PHX win I purposely set aside as this is a new season and its for real this time, so my expectation of a win came from our significantly improved roster than beating an NBA team.

I am not losing my bundle at this loss but I expected better than a 25 point blow out.

We got rid of deadwood Humphries. We brought in 1 top tier import (Franks) and a second tier but still very good import Cleveland, then there is the streaky Randall.

CJ was talking about how tough it is on the team when not everyone is healthy, lets consider CJ than the JJ's were missing their captain, their marquee, and MacDaniel.

Its not the end of the world but its concerning for sure.

"Too many crocodile player and crocodile coach. Kai scored 4 points in 5 minutes. If he had played 30 minutes he would've scored 25 and silly crocodile team would actually win."

Have to love the simple maths being done here. If only basketball were a maths equation. But here are some other variables:

Rashard Tucker had 8 points on him in 45 seconds. Had Kai played 30 minutes Rashard would have had 90 points.

Kai got all those buckets in junk time when neither team is playing their best line ups. Had 30 minutes of the game been junk time the game would have been over by the first quarter and Adelaide would have lost by 50.

See everyone can play these dumb math games

And by the way, is "crocodiles" some sort of racial slur? You might want to watch yourself.

Jackjumpers have played games this season so are conditioned to the refs, the style, each other, etc, etc. First real outing for the Sixers and it showed but always going to be hard to win when a team shoots 7/10 from 3pt in 1st qtr. Looked like the larger open space in the NBA games affected them as Jackjumpers closed down all the lanes and did a good job giving them no room to move.
Sixers percentages from inside were good and they should have played to that more as a lot of the 3pt shots were bad shots. Needed to isolate Franks inside to score and force the double team and kick out for open shot. Sixers were horrible at finding player on the roll. Did some really good pnr but they held back the pass inside. Had many good looks at this but couldn't execute. Didn't llok like they had any real plan to throw off the full court defence of the Jackjumpers.
Big difference in 3pt shooting in the end (Jacket). 10 extra 3pt makes being the margin. Sixers only making 5 3pt shots in total is not acceptable at this level of basketball.

Imports bitching at each other.....just what you want to see first game up.
Randall is a problem, a big problem.

Yes, Randall arguing with coaches, not a pretty sight in this most unappealing team to watch, last night.

JVG gone, but they're still on track to be first club to send an import home. Same sh1t, different year.

Launching 3s from the start is ok but you gotta be honest with yourselves if you're not being successful. I wouldn't wait 1 full quarter to figure that out let alone 3. Same witb giving your starters a chance to do well. You have other talented players. The kid Sotto by the way seems to be mobile enough to play Bruton's game. Just needs more exposure to prove himself.

Yes, CJs subbing was strange last night.

Unfortunately I could see potential problems with Randall during the pre-season which is why I said he should come off of the bench this season. That way he doesn't take too many shots away from the starters and can jack up as many as he likes. If Randall's going to be a problem then just cut him.

If Randall had ego issues before going to the US then it must be a lot worse now. Maybe he wants to be released or the NBA is interested but Adelaide is playing hard-ball. (Now where have we heard that before???) Who knows?

At this early stage of the season, they're still trying to find their roles within CJ’s system, and to learn to respect each other. It will happen; I just hope that it’s soon.

Some real attitude issues with Randall. He may ask for a trade to Port Adelaide.

Looking at Randall's G League stats, he shot a lot, didn't get to the line, pretty high turnover numbers... not a particularly efficient offensive player really. Needs to shoot high volumes to make an impact, which has checked out so far from what we've seen of him. I don't think you can succeed with that type of player as your main scorer, which might be an issue going forward as he doesn't seem to have any other way of playing.

Sotto is not the answer to Sixers five man problem, they need a banger that takes rebounds and cleans up scraps, protect the ring, play D, a team first guy, I don't see Johnson or Sotto doing this. Team chemistry is certainly lacking on last night performance. I’ve said it before, high scoring G league players don’t always make good nbl players. It’s early days and Adelaide are to talented to not make play offs.

Where did Randalls G League team finish?
CJ could of gone many ways with his rotations. I think playing the main players good mins is good, gets them match conditioned, exposes the kinks, etc. You can play a million pre season games to prepare but they never come close to real games for match fitness, touch, etc.
I think the travel was an issue as they seemed very reactive slow and not proactive. Saturdays game will be a good indicator.

A few disappointing points from last night. The 36ers were on a hiding to nothing, win it was expected lose they are the worse team. Should they have won, yes for sure, but they didn't regroup and move on. The game was just ugly, credit to the Jackies, but it was nowhere near a spectacle. Looking at the marketing of the event, poor really, a supposed near sell out, and the entertainment was lacking, it was an opportunity to sell the "bling" of what Basketball can be, especially after the media hype, and I think they failed, maybe made worse because of the game not sure.

Also saw a post somewhere recently that the standard of officials needs to be lifted, ah yep. They are now confusing players, coaches and spectators even more so, or at least last night. No calls, weird calls, soft calls it was all on show last night. Maybe it is time they go pro themselves if the goal is to expand the NBL.

Sotto is definitely not the answer. As soon as he got on the court, they isolated him up the top and shot 3pt straight over the top of him.

The crowd was just a tick over 8k and during school holidays too so I doubt it came close to a sell out. That's a bit of an old marketing trick claim something is almost sold out to create fear of missing out to increase sales.

what about how they came out and said there are only 1000 tickets left, yet they only got 8000 there - clearly just lied!

Only a thousand tickets left doesnt mean only a thousand seats left. Its not uncommon for a lot of people not to turn up to a game even if they'd bought tickets.

Not too bad a crowd going going off crowds from last couple years, but hearing talk of nearly sold out and then I also heard it was going to be the biggest crowd Sixers have had so far at Entertainment Centre, it was a bit of a letdown seeing so many empty seats with the yellow shirts on them.

Especially if the weather was god awful.

Why go if you can watch in the comfort of your own home on Kayo?

So maybe there was a fair few members that also didn't rockup?

It’d be more weird to purchase a ticket for a specific game and not go

First year at Ent Centre crowds were huge. Been crap since then.
