Yes let's hope it’s a good one. Kings not as strong as last season but still very good. United are travelling very well. Adams v Illi should be a beauty, Hogg v Travers as well. Both very deep benches and well coached though Vickerman certainly has the runs on the board. JLA and Hukporti should be to good for Hunter and Bolden and United should win it there plus home court. United by 12.

Hunter is out with an ankle sprain which means JLA will feast (and probably would have regardless).

Cracking first quarter, one point to Sydney, can't see anything other than this is GF match up.

Disgusting call and review. That should be a no call or foul on Illi. Once you are in lay up steps you can't just vanish

Well, well, well, United undermanned but at the half it's all Sydney. Is it the knowledge of Bogut and Longley and Pondgrass contacts in the US that seems to be able to get good coaches.

Rucker is an excellent analyst off the game, great addition to nbl team.

Krebs is a decent player but has become a serious liability on offence. Coming into the league as a 3 and D guy he now cannot hit the side of a barn so doesn't even bother shooting any more.

Pretty simple. You don't win a championship playing little or no D. Or playing with zero composure in a crisis. Or making zero adjustments to deny the ball to a red-hot shooter. Or not calling timeouts when they are clearly warranted. Abdelfattah is not the guy. Goulding was awesome, sure. But the Kings have a head coach who is a serious downgrade on Buford.

Sydney played a lot of dumb basketball in the 2nd half and it was very satisfying to see United punish them for it. Excellent win with CG43 leading the way.

29 point turn around after half time, unbelievable. Melbourne clearly the best team in the comp but I think kings will improve to at least make contest of it. Goulding and Travers were unbelievable in the second half, Vickerman is the maestro, up in the Gleeson class now.

Kings blew this in the second half, it might be their Achilles heal only knowing one pace to play. Noi and Bruce to much time and at minus 20 and 21. He over played both these two ahead of Toohey and Bolden.

Still don't see anything but United v kings GF.

Isnt the owner of the league also a director of United? LOL
Absolute clown league
Again, there is a reason why the NBL does not even get in the top 20 of watched shows on any given night.

Dunkmam, it is easy to be the best team in the comp when the refs have your back.
Absolute crap show this league.
Imagine how people will react when you say the owner of the league is also a director of a current team.
LOL tell me there will not be unconscious bias from the referees.
The owner of the league is your employer and you are refereeing in games he is a director of a team
Really really bad look.

Hoops should have an award ceremony for Tool of the year.
Jacket has it unanimously.

Why do you follow the league and bother with the BS?
I don't follow the NBA because it’s too much one on one, but don’t just talk bs on every single thread

"What is unconscious bias? Unconscious (or implicit) bias is a term that describes the associations we hold, outside our conscious awareness and control. Unconscious bias affects everyone. Unconscious bias is triggered by our brain automatically making quick judgments and assessments."

Disappointing half of basketball to fumble away the game for Sydney, but have to appreciate a vintage CG43 showing all the same - don't know how many more of those we'll see.

Anyway great game and Goulding mvp. @ jacket I've always believed that everyone is entitled to an opinion but you can’t see the wood for the trees. Just give it a rest.

Thought the Kings were just too strong there in the first half, United just couldn't match it with Hogg and Valentine, just too much firepower and athleticism and without Adams having much impact. What a turnaround, would love to hear what Vickerman said to them at half time. Goulding just turned it on, what a shooting display. Travers very good second half.

Why is Goulding the MVP?

Because he's the best, most important player on the best team in the league? Pretty simple math.

Goulding is now the complete player, offensively fantastic, defensively good, plays team, leads from the front and speaks well and he's an entertainer. Vickerman has turned him into the mvp product he is.
