NBL – Adelaide 36ers vs Sydney Kings

Wednesday January 20, 4.30 PM, Titanium Security Arena, Adelaide

The 36ers need to keep winning to remain in the top four and with the Breakers on a Far North Queensland road trip a home court win is priceless against the cellar dwelling Kings!

Game rating – Adelaide 93  v Sydney 91

Adelaide find themselves in the top four nearing the business end of the season after a thrilling, high class, come from behind win against the Townsville Crocs (103-108) last Saturday night in Townsville.  Again it was the brilliance of Jerome Randle 34 points and big man Daniel Johnson 20 points and 11 rebounds that led Adelaide to victory.  The Kings were putrid in Perth last Friday, losing (95-68) on the back of a shocker from Josh Childress 7 points.


These sides have met three times  this year with the 36ers leading the series 2-1, following defeats of the Kings away (81-91) and at home (99-98) before the Kings got one back, beating the 36ers in Sydney (106-84).  The 36ers had to shoot some healthy percentages to stay with the Crocs in the first half, before being too classy in the second half to post that win.  The Kings will have to show some pride and look to bounce back with a decent performance but Adelaide have too much to play for and will win. Watch for a fast start from Sydney and they could steal a first quarter lead.
