Took the split

The overrated Bullets fall once again. And they were the bookies favourite as well at the start of the year lol.

Wildcats and the Hawks should be a cracker given the injury cloud over a couple of the hawks players.

Didn't you guys watch the game? Yes the Hawks were missing Saville, but they were also at home and rested whereas we had to fly to Brisbane, win a road elimination game (always tough to do) and then down south within a couple of days and repeat the dose.

Not to mention the Cats played absolutely SPARKLING basketball. Brilliant offence and some good defence. The Tigers are the team to beat but on current form, there is some hope for Perth fans.

After the ups and downs of supporting us this season, let me enjoy these two gutsy, brilliant wins by the Cats.

Tigers will win... but hard to see whether they're gonna cover or not...

Gonna stick my nexk out and take the OVER 197.5 @ 1.90 in this game...

Cats put 121 on the board against the Hawks in QF, while Tigers showed they can also score with 109, 108 in last 2 games in Round 23... Baily will terrorise the Tigers' defence, gonna be a lot of fouls... plenty of cheap points = OVER ! Just need both teams to shoot FT well... :)

02-14-2006, 03:24 AM
Guys, the OVER looks like gold to me...

The both times these two met in Melbourne, the scores are :

10-Sep-05 - Tigers 115-105 Wildcats
03-Dec-05 - Tigers 117-106 Wildcats

Tho the both times they met in Perth went UNDER... :p

I wouldn't say that they beat teams that were fit. They scraped past Hunter who had Trahair on one leg and had an even tougher game against Adelaide who had Rychart and Maher just coming back from injury.

Personally I see this game going along the same lines as last night's game. Perth were not able to get up for their third game in the space of a week and I can't see the Taipans being able to do that either.

No I did not take them with the start as they were only getting 9.5 so I don't think it is worth it.
Honestly my standard bet is hardly anything, I am not a big better at all. Usually just some "pocket money" on the nightly basketball or tennis match, so I am not going to lose a huge amount if Cairns lose. {but they aren't!}

Why I am feeling so confident?
I don't know but I honestly haven't felt this confident about a basketball match all season. I just have a huge feeling tonight is Cairns' night and no team named Sydney :retard:'s Kings are going to stop them!

Okay so I was wrong. I admit. Let the caning begin.

I have lost so much on this NBL season. For me it has been the worst season in the history of sport!

I have a few questions though:-
Did Anthony Stewart have a tattoo on his left shoulder / arm in the Adelaide game?
I am 100% sure I seen it a couple times in the last two matches and tonight it is gone.

And for you Kings fans, do you think that no matter what happens you always get the bulk of calls?
To me CJ Bruton gets babied every game by the referees.

One last thing, For the rest of this season I won't be commenting on who will win and who won't BUT just remember it's a best of three series.

Bye!

sparkus8
02-15-2006, 10:04 AM
Mate no-one will bag you for being wrong. I'm yet to meet anyone who gets it right every time.

I will take you to task with the referees call though. I have seen plenty of Kings games this year and CJ gets banged and grabbed all night long by slow defenders who cant keep up with him, yet a lot of these fouls still go unwhistled. To get a call he pretty much has to throw his hands up in the air for the refs to blow the whistle.

Also if you check the foul count tonight it was in the Taipans favour 22-16 tonight.

Anyways after watching the last two games to me it looks like both series will be 2 and out, so strap yourselves in for the GF series we have all been waiting for Kings v Tigers!!! A match up for the ages.

Happy New Year Kings backers

It was odd, whilst watching it I think the crowd was waiting for the Kings to stop toying with the Snakes and when it happened late in the 3rd qtr, it was as if somebody switched the GO button on the Kings offense, it was an incredible run. 4th qtr was just a garbage qtr and the Kings bench were having their way in the end of the game.

Burgess and Mee were no shows all night, obviously the Boods injury hurt the Snakes. I was impressed with Crosswell's performance tonight though.

A performance expected of the Kings, but there are still areas to improve in.

I have lost so much on this NBL season. For me it has been the worst season in the history of sport!

I have a few questions though:-
Did Anthony Stewart have a tattoo on his left shoulder / arm in the Adelaide game?
I am 100% sure I seen it a couple times in the last two matches and tonight it is gone.

And for you Kings fans, do you think that no matter what happens you always get the bulk of calls?
To me CJ Bruton gets babied every game by the referees.

One last thing, For the rest of this season I won't be commenting on who will win and who won't BUT just remember it's a best of three series.

Bye!


Nobody here is going to cane you that is not how it works around here. However come question time you are going to have to come up with a better reason to back the Taipans then simply saying you hate the Kings ;) Anyway friendly banter here is fine :)

I agree with Spark on the Bruton issue, in fact plenty of people say the same thing about Smith as well, however when you have the best backcourt in the business they will always come for attention when it comes to public perception of foul calls. As spark said a lot of guards just can't keep up with them hence there are plenty of times they push and shove to slow the play down, you won't find the refs making calls on that. There was one questionable call with Bruton regarding a backcout violation which should have probably been called on him which wasn't.

Just because you got one wrong, it should not mean you stop contributing here. :wavey:

In all honesty the only reason I backed the Snakes was because I had a really good feeling. I talked them up because I hated the Kings but that is not why I backed them.
I haven't finish contributing here, but I have finished making bold statements for this year. Believe me I think Cairns can still comeback but I'll leave it at that!

Tonight is not the only one I have got wrong. All season I have backed the Bullets, Crocs and Taipans and it is like backing a.................I dont know. It's like trying to hang onto a bull for 16 seconds, not 8. No that was silly. I don't know. It's been awful. That's all I got!
I have lost so much on the NBL season. Thankfully I have made most of it back on Tennis and other sport. Plus the Rugby League season is coming up.

That over and back call wasn't questionable, I seen the replay 8 times. I don't know I tend to be biased, but the Snakes got no calls and as happens in every building, the Kings got everything go there way. To me everyone loves them.


BTW,
Bad Gambler I think I seen you on TV. You had your photo taken with the cheerleaders and the mascot at half time. That was you wasn't it. Yes it was!:lol:

Anyway lets see how the Taipans fare in Cairns, one positive for them is that Mee and Burgess can't play any worse

Next season is a whole new ball game!

I will be talking the Bullets and Crocodiles up next season but for this year....well......I'm not saying anymore. I think you all know who I want to win..so enough said.

By the way I have asked this before but got no answer:-
Does anyone know what Derek Rucker has planned for next season?
I heard last season that he will play one more season {this season} in hope of getting a premiership. I really really hope he plays on. Anyone know?
