This evening: Bullets vs 36ers in Brisbane

Anyone know where you can listen to the game?

Not sure if there is a radio broadcast for this one. NBL.com.au live scores will be our best bet I suspect.

Tip off is 6:30 eastern time. Without daylight saving, I believe Brisbane is 30 minutes behind us, so it's an hour and a half until the game starts (currently it's 5:30 in Adelaide).

If you're optimistic (I'm not ruling out a win, but not feeling confident) I think the Sixers are paying about $23 for a double-figure win...

The game is underway.

36ers have started Maher, Farley, Majstro, Horvath, Cooper - probably my preferred five of the bunch. Bullets have gone with CJ, Black, Mackinnon, Rychart and Bradtke - bringing Ere and Boucher off the bench.

Campbell, no, went for Bullets by 11 or more. Which means that either Brisbane will only just win, or Adelaide will get up!

So far, they're doing OK.

Skip, Hill is on now, so probably not?

Nothing is going to surprise me in this game. Adelaide have the guns to win if they're all at their best - so far, Copeland has hit a couple, so that's a good sign.

Rychart six boards in the first!

they may need to stop Ere if they are to have a chance. He came off the bench and scored a quick fire 14 in the first quarter...it will be ugly if he continues.

Yeah, like bballer said, Hill wasnt listed on the NBL Scoreboard until he came onto the court.
Things arent looking to bad so far. I feel if our starters can stay out of foul trouble we are in with a real shot here.

It looks to me like Brett should get the rest of his teammates involved in the game instead of just himself. I thought that was supposed to be the major role of a point guard and captain.

There is obviously no team ball being played. Another loss, more excuses...

disheartening when the opposition has their entire bench on having junk time. And are still kicking our arse. If copeland, Maher and Horvath are the ones in double figures, we need ALOT more from the bench players. Ere comes off their bench to score 27. We just dont have this in our team and as long as we only rely on Maher, horvath and every now and then farley and copeland, we are in a lot of trouble. Brisbane played games with us tonight.

I guess we should not speculate about Farley until we know exactly what happened. But if he was fuly fit, that is awful indeed. We are no doubt paying him some big money and we cannot afford him to have such nights.

Don't get rid of Farley. Because he can get naturalised at the end of the year than we could have another import.

Boxscore is up. Farley 2/15 from the field.

36ers 37%, Bullets 53%.

Beaten by Mackinnon - 29 at 72%, 7 boards, 5 assists, 4 blocks, 2 steals. 18 point third quarter from him, almost beat us in that term single-handedly.

I don't know if there need to be any excuses for this result other than:

- Bullets have a superior (and more expensive) team
- Adelaide shot poorly as a whole, besides Maher and Copes
- Mackinnon went 8/8 at one point

Wait for eye witness reports from Statman and Sturty6ers, I think. Maybe we sucked, or maybe the refs were biased or maybe it was just our shooting that was off.

Its games like this that increase the chances of Maher being injured again. 42mins/47 secs on court. The longest any player from both teams spent on court tonight. I guess its difficult to make the decision to take him off when he is the only one working.

Farley never rocks up on the road, most of us already know that ... is it possible to have home/away imports ? maybe give EJ a run on the road, and Farley at home ... it will also give Farley time to work on his D - oh, no that would take time away from working on his showmanship ...

Sturty6ers

Adelaide were in the game until just before half time. It was a twenty odd point lead through to the end.

I didn't think that Adelaide played all that bad, Brisbane played extremely well.

36ers weren't getting any lovin' from the refs in the first half. I even heard the older of the two male refs say 'Everytime I make a call, they (36ers) are always whinging. There might be something in that. The refs seem to even it up in the second half.

I'm not a big Farley fan but he contributed. Not to the scoreline but in other areas.

Maher was HOT (sizzle!!!)
Copeland was good. So was Horvath. Cooper and Horvath were getting beaten up in the key by the likes of Bradtke and Ere and even Boucher. Matt Sutton was playing quite well especially when he had to guard Ere. Darren Ng didn't even enter the court until the third quarter. He got a few minutes, most in garbage time.

No one could get near Slammin' Sammy tonight. They were callin' him King Midas. (Everything he touched turned to Gold). Pure poetry at both ends.

The Bullets put two of their young blokes on just after halftime. Gibson and Williamson. They seemed to hold their own against the likes of Farley etc. Most of the fourth quarter they had 4 of the younger bunch on.

20 points down, with 5 minutes to go,(you are not going to win, unless you are the Crocs playing the 36ers, 2004) why do you have the two oldest people in the team still on the court?

A lady sitting near me commented and said:
'That Coach looks disinterested'

I'll let you guess which one she was referring to.....

From a Brisbane fan on OzHoops - good mentions for Maher and Copes.

A surprisingly large (and vocal) crowd at the BCEC tonight, as the Bullets cruised to a comfortable victory.

The game seemed scrappy for the most part, with Adelaide's abysmal offence contrasted by Brisbane's constant scoring. Plenty of messy turnovers as well.

Maher scored at will. Obviously wasn't moving as freely as he would like, but he had a solid game. Copes also did ok, but things fell away after him. Ng only got a run in the fourth, not certain why Sutton got quality minutes ahead of him. Anyone? As for Farley, wasn't injured, just had a stinker. One of those nights for him and Horvarth ... had some good looks around the basket, but the ball just didn't drop. Farley was awful from range as well.

For the Bullets, Ere was a class act, as was Sammy Mack. Both got standing ovations from the members section after being subbed off in the fourth, and rightfully so. Outstanding games from both, Ere in particular making some awesome shots. The rest of the load was spread across the board. CJ had a woeful game.

Not much else to comment on. If I was an Adelaide fan, I'd be worried. We haven't had many home games yet, but this was the worst I've seen from a visiting team so far, and would be hard to top.

I hate being a box-score know-it-all, but Farley had 30mins yet did not get to the foul-line, had 1 board, 1 assist and no other stats.

Having a bad shooting night is understandable, that's going to happen from time-to-time. But once you realise its one of those nights, surely you get involved in other ways. Get the ball to team mates, play harder defence, get to the rack and draw a foul. Just do something with your minutes.

I get the feeling that making anything good out of this season has now become an impossibility. For this reason perhaps the coaches and team believe why bother if there is going to be no reward at the end. What does that say for the fans who expect to go and watch some good basketball and have paid money for that privilege. I hope this is not the case because regardless of outcome there is always a responsibility to the fans who come to each home game to support the team and be entertained in the process.

Imports can help a team win a championship for sure.

What out of this, was so stupid?

Some of the more memorable moments from the game:

-Watching Slammin' Sammy.
-Hearing Statman yell out to Joey, 'Send Hill back on so we can hang more shit on him!'

EC, here's what I think can be taken from this season:

- reduce Maher's minutes to ensure that he is healthy if they make the finals and hopefully maximise his impact next year
- run a lot of Sutton to give him maximum chance to develop his game on court
- start Majstrovich and give him good minutes (as above)
- if one of the frontcourt players are injured or it's a blowout in either direction, put Dodman on and see what happens
- keep firing up Farley so that the home games are interesting to watch

That said, I don't think it's an abysmal roster. It does have potential, but they're just struggling - same thing happened with the South Dragons earlier in the season when they were 0-5.

I believe he tried working hard in the weights room in the offseason but if really affected his shooting at the start of the abl season so he stoppped doing it. He now goes a couple of times a week.

The thing I loved about it Sturty was that Joey heard me and put Hill back on!

But seriously Mackinnon is in career form at the moment - and he does a lot of off the ball stuff as well that doesnt show up on a box score. PLus all the bullets clearly are enjoying playing with each other and the chemistry is there (easy to have good chemistry when winning though I suppose)

The Sixers looked like 5 individuals on the court rather than a cohesive group, at one stage when there was a delay due to blood on the court - (about 2 - 3 minutes) the Sixers just wandered around the court like sheep - surely that was a time to call in to a huddle and fire each other up - even if it was just to set up the next play!

As for Will - just had a stinker! was closely guarded - a breakaway dunk early I thought would set him up for a big game. The Farley swagger and arrogance were nowhere to be seen and he looked like he wanted to be anywhere but on the basketball court.

Sutton - shows great potential - just needs confidence - had a couple of chances to drive to the hoop but pulled back when he should have gone for it. A bit of confidence and experience will see him flourish.

Scream team came on to do their dunks at 3/4 time. and there were various dancers and coompetitions at times outs etc
