Breakers @ Blanks - Thurs 26th Jan

Tips 7:30pm VIC/NSW.

NZ keen for this one to give themselves a sniff of finishing top two. Blanks playing for pride only.

Is Brown playing? Regardless, New Zulund by 12.

Would tend to agree breakers should win relatively easily but if leafa isn't playing many minutes the reliance on mcdowell-white could weigh heavily

Bullets could not defend an u/12 team. Sobeys plus-minus for the season must be horrendous. Can someone with more smarts than me find out.

Breakers look a lot different with brown jnr in the game, even in cameos. I still think they need to get rupert or vodanovic scoring efficiently to be a threat to the kings though

Well after a competitive first quarter, the Blanks politely laid down for the Breakers to take control and cruise home with no resistance. Tbh I don't think anyone was expecting different,

Clean out required at bullets. Long way back, Sobey past it, Baynes never really got started, improved slightly as season went on but never looked that interested. The rest, one or two got bit talent, punt the rest.

Gosh the Bullets defence is atrocious. I can't remember if Melbourne was the first team to do it but a lot of teams have found success against the Breakers recently by doubling Brantley and Pardon often as well as switching into a 2-3 zone when Brantley makes a catch in the short corner or low post. Gibbo called it right when he said you gotta double Brantley early and disrupt him before he gets into a groove and they didn’t double him at all!

If the Breakers can get more from Rupert and Vodanovic they’re very deep. Gliddon is finally starting to find some confidence. Abercrombie was better, but I think with him they just need to reduce his minutes to 8-16 per game rather than 20+ mpg.

I would be giving Dan Fotu some of Tom's minutes as he seems to bring plenty of energy and is capable of knocking down shots and battles for O boards

Looks like the breakers have regained some of their form after a mini slump. Last two games have been impressive

Breakers are much better when they let WMW run the team and Le'afa to be a three and D type rather than a traditional PG. Brown’s penetration on offence and on ball defence helps a lot. In fact, I’d forgotten how good he is defensively. It’s a very well balanced squad, but if you take out a piece of timber that’s when it gets exposed. If they can stay healthy I think they’re the most likely to challenge the Kings.

Did i really hear there were scouts watching Baynes for a potential return to the NBA?

Am i missing something?

Brisbane at season start were right in games till halftime, sack the coach, then another coach and nothing has changed. When you bring in an ex nba guard, Baynes also ex nba, Sobey on massive money, their season should have been top four minimum. The have actually failed worse than sixers without the scrutiny.

Imagine having teams like the Bullets and Hawks in your league and claiming it is the 2nd best league in the world?

Plenty of scrutiny on Brisbane earlier in the year, now it's just flogging a dead horse...
