Wonder if Smyth called a Timeout during that quarter or just let them 'play through it'

Looks like no one can step up in the absence of maher....not only physically out of the game, but mentally as well

Would you bring him in for the second half? With Hamstrings, you can either go on them or not, resting for a half isnt the solution

Sixers on a 2 nothing run off the back of Rtchart free throws, also winning the foul count. Oh who am I kidding, may as well support the breakers

Breakers are on a 2-0 streak. Playing them at the Dome is no longer a guaranteed win...

If Maher is at all fit to play the 2nd half, he should. The odds of winning this game is remote but he could help save some embarrassment. With or without Brett, the contirbution from the rest of the team is well below average. The absence of one player should not be that obvious.

or he could blow his legs and be out for 3-4. i think you rest him and loose. we cant always rely on brett, people have to step up ie 4pt from farley, 0 from coop, 1 from hill. The positive is hill should get some time under his belt.

Cooper is over rated. Sixers need someone who can do a bit more in that spot. Don't forget the number of tough games sixers have played in last few. Somehow, I don't think they expected to win this one.
Gotta give Sydney some credit too.

Oscar has 8 and 4.

Nino, I think someone said the Kings had 42 in the first quarter. That comes in equal tenth for the highest score in a quarter against Adelaide.

This losing streak is definitely top ten for worst in the club's history.

The Media Guide doesn't appear to carry stats for biggest margins.

I bet he starts with "We were shit!".

Down 47! Would have to be their worst loss ever? Still 5 minutes to go and the Kings are already running 5 of their youngest players.

This is not good, down by 47, we will go down by at least 55 i reckon.....i think the players need to re-focus over xmas and then come out and play vs pigs on Dec 31 like they did at the start of the season

Down by 49. Rebound count if you believe the NBL stats is 50-37 with 1:34 to go. Can't imagine that our percentages are going to be pretty!

What is the point of having 10 players in the team if even the starting five can not match the opposition ?

Maybe better to cut 5 players and get a quality centre next year .Not just a big man but somebody who can fit in the team and do something .

Hate to see the day when Maher decides to retire . He is the team.

Wonder if any drastic changes will occur after this one? Smyth is a pretty soft coach, but even he would have to agree something must change after this one.....

Maybe it is time to let some of the player go for new opportunities outside of the team .

Problem still seems to be that the return on the investment in Farley is not at the level expected.

i just cant believe its the 6ers, normally you write us off at your own risk. We may not have the best team but we can kill you if you take us lightly, what do we have now...

We have 3 stars , one of which seems to be lacking confidence recently , one who seems to have lost the interest and a great one who did not play tonight.

Then we have a good young player who can score, rebound and assist but he can not do it all alone as it looks like he had to do tonight.

Add 2 guys who try hard but maybe are not ( at the moment ) where the team needs them to be plus a young turk learning and 3 centres gone missing .

Anon spot on, throw in 4 games in 8 days, 3 on the road (3 top 4 teams) and you have a recipe for disaster, easy to predict but hard to swallow.

if you think theres not much positive about jacob then you are a tool,

having a great season and apart from maher is probably the only player busting his chops for the entire game week in week out

You would think a smart coach like
phil would take 10 players to sydney and stack up on the guards(due to playing sydney and no maher). 8 tough days?? maybe phil should think about things a little more than saving money on taken extra players.

it seems to me that our players just concede defeat if maher or farley arnt playing. they dont even give it a go. without maher where lost on the court and furthermore the players and coach just give up without maher.
