Jack Jumpers @Perth Semi final

Hard game to pick jack jumpers in better form but Perth always hard to beat at home 50/50 game

JJ's have played in the past 19 days unlike Perth, and JJ's are a team built on defense and system, similar to the Gleeson teams of old. Ready to keep rising to the occasion of these playoffs.

So JJ's is my tip.

If Lee's not there, it'll be tougher for them though, with Magnay needing to play big minutes and stay out of foul trouble - which as we know, can be difficult in the NBL on the road.

Hopefully it's a cracker, like the first game of the season involving these two.

After seeing how Melb came out after 3 week break, I'm tipping JJs.

I think home court will certainly help cats, but can't see them winning, there is no position that cats are better in, Cotton the exception. Cotton scores 35 plus cats are a chance otherwise JJs by ten.

Cats gotta deal with Magnay too...

I think JJ's are gonna be pissed they didn’t get 2nd spot and take it out on a rusty Perth squad.

JJ's haven't been able to contain star guards all year... and Perth have the best in the league.

Cotton for 30+ and Perth W

Either way though, it's United and then daylight.

19 fouls in that first quarter, that has to be some sort of record for a playoff game?

On another note there's still nothing more funnier that Usher was pegged as DPOY at start of the season. The guy is traffic cone out there .

So much for letting the gane flow in the play-offs, may as well just attack the paint, likely get a call, phone might run out of battery watching this...

Horrible call on Sarr.
Roth breaking his two foul rule for McVeigh.
Crowd very quiet.
As usual the JJs just hang tough, cats have looked better.

What is JR doing? You can't have both Websters and Usher on the court at the same time. Harris was great in 1st qtr, no 2nd qtr minutes.

Leaving Doolittle on the floor with a concussion a couple of months after being fined for leaving Doolittle on the floor with a concussion is certainly A Choice.

Wagstaff and Harris are a useful four combination but it's there weak spot at both ends. Cats in trouble.

8 fouls to 2 in the 4th and the kestleman owned team getting the rub again. Seriously the fact people on this forum suggest perth gets home cooking in 2024 is comical. Pinder can get hit, slapped etc doesn't matter. Goes near someone on defence, foul...

How about celebrating after the game once you've won it not over one play, too much prematuring by this group.

Olgun's Notebook

It’s a 10-9 foul count at the end of one quarter. Last night’s foul count over the entire game was 18-17.

The way this is being officiated - refs wanting a ton of freedom of movement, so calling any and all physicality - benefits Perth in a big way.

The NBL was never going to let the Hawks and Jack jumpers win.
This is a business that relies on returns and Perth and Melbourne will provide a much much better return.
A Tassie / Hawks final will be a financial disaster.
Thats all it is, a business and the referees are company men

To be fair i dont think anyone would have predicted Pinder hitting 5 three pointers.

But the boneheads actually iced the game for the cats. Tai and Ush were huge in the last 5 minutes with Bryce nullified.

Hadn't realized how biased Santa is, agree with others above no home cooking for Perth. Pinder being used as a punching bag, thought JJs were allowed to get away with some border line dirty play toinight.

Over a good game, to many soft fouls called and some blatant missed. The best thing about the game is the best side on the night won. I'm a little surprised that Perth could actually slug it out with JJs. Going to be very interesting on Monday night.

Agreed. When the Jackies got the game on their tempo and it became a half court slog the cats defense and rebounding was very good. Both teams missed some open looks but perth with some missed layups i thought would cost them in the end

Yesterday it was a hard foul call and today it was a soft foul call. If MU had received foul calls yesterday like today, they would have had 30 fouls in the first half. You can think of these as different leagues. Consistency is lacking.

These two sentences are enough if anyone is looking for a succinct match report.

They actually, gasp, rebounded as well down the stretch.

Sigh, it's not sustainable in the long run however, short term fool's gold with this coach.

Pinder's five triples and the free throws (Perth 29/32, Tas 12/19) were the difference in this game. Roth tried to pre-empt this with his radio comments but was unsuccessful.

Overall a super game, great adjustments and lots of big plays, can't wait for Monday.

Doyle was completely off his game and McVeigh sat for ages with foul trouble. As we got deep into the last quarter, Perth started getting all the calls with the crowd getting involved.

Defense on Cotton was superb.

That's a great result for United. RAC Arena holds no fear for Melbourne, and they'll put similar pressure on Cotton to what the JJ's did last night. JJ's are United's nightmare opponent.

Cotton was well contained but he remains elite at drawing attention and getting defenses into scramble mode. The rest of the guys did what they needed to do and knocked them down. Well, mostly. A few less missed layups would have kept the stress levels a bit lower.

Liked Perth's work on the boards at both ends. Not a battle we usually break even in.

LOL @PW but we must keep the faith. Fools gold or not their defense and rebounding was back to where it was during their win streak and they match up well against United (if they both get through). Yes there are the usual suspects making low IQ plays at crucial moments and flexing too hard and losing focus. But what they do well is very good and if they can channel their emotions the right way then you never know ;)

For sure, if they're going to go all the way it may as well be now as I don't think it will be this open in seasons to come.
