YTD: 28-24

Horrible 0-3 last weekend, the Taipans straight up stink. No offensive groove at all and they play at an agonising pace. Feel bad for the coach because he seems to be doing his best but his roster isn't up to the standard of the rest of the league. Their game last night vs the Kings was horrendous after the 1Q.

Big card tonight across both leagues.

NBL

Hawks @ Breakers
Wildcats @ Bullets

WNBL

Rangers @ Capitals
Fire @ Spirit
Flames @ Lightning

Need to wait on some injury news for the ladies, especially Batkovic for Fire. Missed the last 2 games with a neck injury and they need her badly if they want to push for a top 4 spot. Bendigo in all sorts of problems.

Breakers got a win last week against the Taipans which everyone is doing so that win was not impressive IMHO. Hawks cannot be trusted on the road though. First meeting of the year with these 2 teams so hard to get a grasp of what to expect.

The other game is a good game, Bullets have been really good this season and hosting the Wildcats who have dropped the last 2. This is the fourth meeting, with Perth holding 2-1 over the Bullets. Game scores have been 177, 196 and 161. Bullets a completely different team at home compared to road with their scoring. Decisions, decisions.

BOL this week guys, hopefully can turn this awful run around.

Hi mate, they definitely can beat Perth but Perth after 2 losses I think will want a win tonight because they want to keep their distance from the rest of the pack.

Dandenong Rangers @ Canberra Capitals: Dandenong Rangers +9.5

One of the best form team getting points, have to take them right now. Capitals are a great team but that’s a lot of chalk

Townsville Fire @ Bendigo Spirit: Over 148.5

Fire needs wins and the Spirit need wins as well. They let go of their US import last week which took some adjustment. Had a week without her now, think we see them score some points at home vs the Fire

Apologies for late post.. Christmas time, family time and just really busy.. 0-2 Friday night, the drought continued.

Kriscar, I know mate but it’s hard to stay away because I like both leagues so much. Aussie basketball has finally been brought back to life after at least a decade of no TV coverage or much attention

Sydneu Uni Flames @ Perth Lynx: Flames +15.5

have to back Sydney here. Blown out by 50 last time they played Perth. Perth coming off 3 straight 20+ losses as well. Adelaide weren’t laying this much on Friday night so why are Perth? Not giving up on Chambers or the Flames

Canberra Capitals @ Townsville Fire: Over 157.5

You guys probably think I am crazy to take the over in this game after seeing what happened 2H the other night in the Spirit vs Fire game but the Capitals are completely stacked now and the Fire need to win this game or their season is over. I think we see both teams open up
