Friday 9:30pm AEDT, RAC Arena
Perth Wildcats took a couple of games to find their chemistry early in the season, but now they’re firing on all cylinders with wins in nine of their past 10 games. Bryce Cotton is putting on a show night in and night out, while Todd Blanchfield and John Mooney are some really nice sidekicks.
Illawarra Hawks were disappointing in their lone Round 10 fixture against Melbourne United. They managed to put up just 65 points total, which is a season low for them. The good news for the Hawks is they’ve responded really well from losses this season, never losing more than two games in a row.
Both the Wildcats and the Hawks pride themselves on their ability on the defensive end, so we aren’t exactly expecting this to be a shootout. When they met earlier this season they combined for a total of 157 points and we’re expecting something similar this time around. Take the ‘unders’ here.
Saturday 5:30pm AEDT, Nissan Arena
Brisbane Bullets have put a shaky start behind them to become a force to be reckoned with. They come into this having won six of their past eight games and were surprisingly good on the defensive end last time out against the Breakers, keeping them to just 67 points. With Lamar Patterson also coming into the team, the Bullets are looming as a potential dark horse this season.
New Zealand Breakers were always going to find it tough having to play all their games away from home this season. They started their campaign with losses in six of their first seven games before finding a bit of form; however, they’re now in the midst of another losing streak and are at serious risk of seeing their season slip away.
These clubs met just last weekend and it was the Bullets who ran away comfortable wire-to-wire winners. They kept the Breakers to 20 points or less in all four quarters, highlighting the full control they had throughout the game. In such a short turnaround we don’t expect much to change, so we’ll be backing in the home side to grab another fairly comfortable win on Saturday.
Saturday 8pm AEDT, John Cain Arena
South-East Melbourne Phoenix defied the odds late in the game against the 36ers in their recent outing, clawing back a seven-point deficit with little over a minute to go to eventually win in overtime. It was their first of what will likely be many games without Mitch Creek in the line-up, making it an even more special win.
Melbourne United started off the season in red-hot hot form with 10 wins from 11 games, but injuries mounted and their momentum was lost as they went onto lose four in a row. United finally got back on the winners list last time out against the Hawks on the back of an immense performance, particularly on the defensive end.
The Phoenix won the most recent Throwdown, which was just a couple of weeks ago, but they don’t have Mitch Creek to lean on this time around. Without his presence on both ends of the floor, we expect United to have the edge and take this out.
