NBL – Perth Wildcats vs Sydney Kings

Friday February 5, 6.30 PM (WST), Perth Arena

The Wildcats have the perfect opportunity to get back on track when they host the unpredictable Sydney Kings at Perth Arena on Friday night.

Game rating –Perth 90 v Sydney 82

The Wildcats now have an opportunity to fine tune and get their Championship aspirations back on track when they take on the Sydney Kings at the Arena on Friday night.  The Cats were disappointing last Friday, losing in OT to Melbourne (85-91).  The strategy to play the bench players at the expense of the starting five was a poor tactic which back-fired on Perth.  It is essential to go for the kill from the off and coach Gleeson must iron-out  their propensity to lose momentum during matches.  The Kings are the Kings-sometimes brilliant, most times ordinary.  The last time Josh Childress was at Perth Arena he was embarrassing and you would expect this guy’s pride to preclude another similar poor performance.


Perth lead this series 2-0 with an away win Round 10 (69-87) and a (95-68) drubbing at Perth Arena in Round 15.  Sydney can come out of the blocks flying as they did in their last trip to Arena, winning the first quarter 20-17 before losing the 15 point spread easily.  In their past match the Kings went down to Cairns ((81-76) but gave a good  account of themselves away from home.  Again playing into big spreads is always risky so the Game Total Over will be the play.
