United @ Cairns - Sun 31st Dec

Second game on the slate.

United by 10+, they'll just be too good.

Currently taking bets on how many times commentary will mention Gilligan's. The over/under is 5.5.

Cairns surprised last time, I don't think they’ll catch Melbourne off guard this time. Team seems to be deteriorating as the season goes on, unfortunately.

United by heaps and heaps again. Don't see this being close, revenge is what I’m seeing.

Cairns are the Jekyll and Hyde of the nbl. So bad to so good, at least in the 1st quarter.

They use that reference now? FFS way to ruin it.

United defence has slipped since season has gone on. Taipans by five at halftime. Hukporti is my sort five man, great at the tough stuff inside.

Too many New Tears eve beers & wake up to see Taipans 59-49. 2 quick 3's from Goulding now 59-55 with 3.44 left in the 3rd. Surely United

Cairns 66-33 at 3Q.

Have a feeling United will wake up in the final term and take a 10 point w.

Well, someone's going to win by double digits, so I'm kinda right :P

Hats off to Cairns, shaping up for yet another convincing W against the league leaders.

It's a beat down in the 4th. 18-7 with just over 4mins left. No way back. Cairns playing well & then there’s the no D & poor offence United in the 4th.

United clearly showing vulnerability, if taipans make finals Cairns got their measure. How can taipans be so awful to so good.

Can someone explain that to me please? Cairns looking great & United looking 2nd rate in the 4th.
29-15 Cairns on the 4th to win 95-78.
Wow! Statement made by the Taipans &:United just didn't fire a shot.

So even the best team is beatable? Crazy.

Might be biased but I think the Taipans have Melbourne's number this season. Have beat them twice this season, both home and away.

This season has been ridiculously bad.

Earlier this year

I tipped Cairns for this one, not surprising result at all and says nothing about title chances

Never discount a rebounding team desperate to win on their home floor

Cairns played out of their skins and United was coasting all night, I expect another game or two like that before seasons end, happens in all sports when there's a team several games clear on top. The complacency effect or whatever you want to label it
