Bullets at breakers

Simple equation for both sides, win. So to finish breaker's season I’m thinking they will win comfortably. Good luck to both sides, hopefully a great contest.

Yeah, I agree big for both.

I know that Lamb, NZ and Mitchell Bris are injured and out. Any others?

Didn't mean the NZ win. Think it will go either way, but it will be close.

Will be watching.

Thinking this will be close, pulling for a Breakers victory to punt Brisbane from the playoff picture. (Only for the daft hope that Bullets management will sit back, consider the roster and conclude "yeah this isn't good enough" and thus go about constructing a more robust playing group that will finally be an honest title contender.)

Would be cool to have Tom get a nice send-off also.

This one is too close to call. Will really depend on how a few different guys go. If Cheatham and Rubstavicius get going, NZB wins. If Zikarsky plays a bit and protects the rim and Sobey it's not an absolute black hole then the Bullets win.

NZ moving the ball well & sharing the scoring load in the first

Refs a bit whistle happy but overall reasonable start by both team. PJC is such a star, just got game.

Mathiang showing low iq again, foul followed by tech. 7.43 to go in second and three fouls.

My man Pineau on fire doing all team things, plus 17, best on court
PJC, 14p and 6a plus 16
Delaney and WMW also doing very well.

Brisbane are really very average, starting with their imports, but got some very average locals as well, most of them overhyped.

Mathiang has been playing well of late and just lets himself and the team down with silly plays like that foul out near the sideline .
Easy to get caught up in the emotion but keep the effort up without fouling.

Yep.

Shannon Scott has been an absolute disaster for Brisbane, who were anticipating him being a league leading general running the ship. So disappointing that Wildcats discard Norton now starts ahead of him and plays the bulk of minutes at point. The huge concern for Brisbane is that Scot is on the book for another season.

Chris Smith was heralded as an outside gunner. Can shoot from spot ups but that's about it and teams have worked out how to limit his output.

Casey Prather is a shell of the dude who featured on three straight title teams years ago.

The slate needs to be wiped clean. If Bullets fans are fortunate, management will find a way to move Scott on.

Going to be particularly interesting if Sobey doesn't stay in town also. I'm not against this.

How is that a double foul, Norton was hanging on PJC just grabbed him as he was falling.

Better 1/4 from bullets, refs trying to keep them in it.

Bullets received this significant output from their three imports tonight:

11 points | 7 rebounds | 3 assists.

A reminder this is a combined total from the THREE of them.

Whomp whomp.

Go Sydney.

Brisbane coaches have probably overachieved with that squad. In the end they fought hard but just lack top quality.

Delaney today was excellent, better than Cheatham who today defensively was average. Nz got some true quality, starting with PJC and WMW, plus some good blue collar workers. A good win in Adelaide and they will be fourth. They could cause trouble though I'm still not convinced on Maor getting subbing right.

Baynes contract has hamstrung Brisbane with import budget this season and last season.

Hopefully his contrast coming off the books can get Sobey some help.

Sobey most like will need to leave before Bullets will be able to move to the top of the league . All the imports too plus Baynes must also be dropped. Sounds like another rebuild next season.

I feel for you.

Despite Sixers/GK getting all the spotlight your ownership plight is worse - it feels like they're absentee landlords who don't give a shit?

Baynes has to be one of the worst NBL contracts of all time.

Are you serious - it was a double foul because he had grabbed Norton around the head. Fair call the double foul.

Agree with above, solution is simple. Use Baynes' money on better imports. Upgrade Scott to a Miller/PJC/Adams level guard and they can be top 4. Zikarsky and Harrison will make a solid 5 man combo after another off-season.

Can someone (other than perth supporters) pls tell me what cotton is better at than pjc to deserve mvp.

PJC has been consistently the best player in the league across all stats that lead to a team winning. Hands down

Even 3pt % is on par and pjc takes better options

I'm with you, I think over the season total, PJC has slightly been better, no disrespect to Cotton though, he’s magnificent.

Absolutely, cottons class in unquestionable. The fact that in one of his less productive seasons he's still a leading candidate for mvp says a lot.

But pjc has produced more, especially when injuries hit and the reliance on him increased

I really hope he stays in the league regardless of which team for

So that's people betting on who will be picked. Not who they think should be picked. Correct?

I agree. I think the top 4 of that odds list are the correct 4.
CG43 is trickier to rank because as good as he has been, he also has more competition for votes around him on his own team. But at least under the current voting system that factor doesn't hurt him as much as it would have at times in the past.

The candidates fall off a cliff very quickly this season...

Start of the season I would've picked jaylen adams, Doyle and Hogg to be in the mix

Cotton at 1.02 is a trap for mug punters to make them think it's a guaranteed 2% return.

A stat came out a few games ago, Perth 16-2 when Cotton scores 15 or more and 0-7 when he doesn't.
