agree in principle D, (my line is Kings -5.5), just can't bring myself to back those people as favourites. 

think the behind-end has completely fallen out of the Tigers

Exactly my thought dude, Tigers have given up for the season whilst the King are due for s good performance... Hammer will push these guys for max effort & play some D for once.

Sunday is pay day

Wildcats-3.5 v Breakers (Big)

Huge game for potential minor premiership & home court advantage in playoffs. Breakers don't have a good history in Perth & Cats know that this is a rare opporunity for them to snatch that number one spot & set themself up for a real shot at winning the title. Matt Knight will play & the recent team meeting will hopefully have addressed the team's epic third quarter fade out issues. Cats tend to rebound well off a lost & the jungle will provide them with a confidence booster to play well & get the W. 

Kings+10 @ Blaze

Under 166.5 Kings/Blaze

Nice number on the Cats. I make this game Perth -5 but this spot sets up pretty similar to their earlier season clash at the cage and we all know how that ended. Ironically though the thing keeping me off playing them again is the fact they wiped the floor with the Breakers last time in Perth. 

That under on the Gold Coast is a play for me as well fwiw, I pegged the number at 162. 

I make the Blaze a -7 fave so a slight edge on the Kings but motivation questionable so will probably just play the under

Whats happened in the NBL? Have the rims become smaller? No one can score all of a sudden...

The condensed schedule is a reason why scoring has slowed in the nba....what is the nbl's excuse?

yeah and the lockout - it's fucked with teams' chemistry and players' conditioning. 

The NBL has no excuse, it's just a low standard basketball league nowadays because financial sustainability is the top priority for most clubs. 

A friend of mine of facebook who's an ex Townsville / Taipans & 36ers point guard commented on his own wall last night that he'd never seen so many missed lay ups as he'd seen in Adelaide last night

Why is Khazzouh out? Explains why the line is so high....hope the queens hold on & play em tight. Didn't see any news about the injury


Cats up 9 at the half.....no more fade outs please
