Sydney at Cairns 07/12

Can Cairns continue the form they showed against United on Sunday?

If they can it should be a really good game.

Very easy for Sydney at present. Defence at both ends is average. Kings just shooting better

Wow, let's start a count on Bruce flops, what a wanker

He's a flop champ, the refs are good at helping him out though. Kings going to have to change there offence to go anywhere in this season.

Miller is a very good player, Armstrong could become one but should not play ahead of Miller. Nice fight back by taipans. As soon as kings 3 ball stops going in there isn't much offence and defensively they are average. Waardenburg is struggling this season, game not over but kings should not lose it from here.

Can we can Bruce the flop champ whilst Wagstaff is still active?

Good comeback from Cairns. Particularly with zero home cooking...

Halftime has extended to about 45 minutes now. Will the long break be of benefit to either team?

It's a draw between Wagstaff and Bruce.

Is this game going to continue, qld run out power, no AC, no shot clock.

No shot clock displayed as u understand it.

And referees seem to have all got new whistles at halftime...

My only entertainment for the remainder of this game is hoping that Cairns gets the upset, and then waiting for Bogut to bitch tit about it on his podcast. Don't think Sydney drop this one though.

Hard to mount a fight back, Cairns, if you're going to miss so many bunnies and foul shots.

At least the NBA scouts were at Per vs Syd last week. Maybe someone take them out to get blind drunk and forget about this one.

I look forward to Kings running out the clock with 2mins remaining

Home after being there for first half. Awful spectacle. Ridiculous foul counts.
Then huge delay. Left at half time. Waste of a night and $

Yep this is probably the worst game of the season so far

As previously said, kings offence is woeful, Hogg only had 9 shots.

Adams over dribbles, where is Connor Henry to get into him.

This is absolutely embarrassing.

Why not at the very least have the court announcer count down 15, 10, 321.

Mind boggling stupid by the league.

Surely someone on the sideline could have run a clock, yelled at the refs when down to 10 seconds.
Honestly i wait all winter for the basketball to start and sat right through all that but boy that was total amateur hour and that's being nice to them.
Kings can’t win it unless there’s a lot improvement at both ends.
Cairns not good enough for finals.

Down to United, Perth, JJs.

That not so buzzer beater was so obviously late, not sure what the Cairns bench was smoking.

Happy we won but that was the worst game of professional basketball I've seen in a long time from an entertainment perspective. No air con, no backup shot clock, amateur hour.

Wow what a crazy game, now I'm worried for the Cairns trip I’m doing for New Year’s Eve, hope this doesn’t happen. So embarrassing.

Vintage NBL. "Nothin' Better"

This season feels so shot. Speaking of which...

At least the NBA scouts were at Per vs Syd last week. Maybe someone take them out to get blind drunk and forget about this one.

Preferably at Gilligan's.

If I was in attendance tonight I'd be getting mad drunk there right now and I don't even drink.

I recall a similar issue happening several years ago in Sydney or Illawarra? Court announcer counted down from 8 if I recall correctly?

Every game has a fourth 'video' unit yeah? Get out your iPhone and count down from 24/14! Not hard!!

Yeah it was a game in the Gong, and the court announcer kept time and called out the last 8 seconds. Apparently that's considered "protocol" for these situations, I have no idea why something like that wasn't done last night, would have been far more ideal than the scrimmage session that the game turned into in the 2nd half. Wasn't helped by all the foul calls, game felt like it went for 5 hours and I was watching about 45 mins delayed so I at least got to fast forward most of the wasted time post half-time.
