Townsville Crocs v Sydney Kings

Wednesday January 27, 4.30 PM (WST), Townsville Entertainment Complex

The revitalized Townsville Crocs will be out to play some party tricks in front of their home crowd but the Sydney Kings have some tricks of their own.

Game rating – Townsville 83 v Sydney Kings 83

This should be an entertaining match with both teams capable of heavy scoring and their recent form belies their positions on the ladder.  The Crocs have been in their best form of the season, defeating the Breakers at home last Thursday (89-66) and prior to that stretched the 36ers (103-108) in a home court blitz that just came up short in the stretch.  The Kings rebounded from a shocking display against the Wildcats in Perth (95-68) with a solid away court loss to the 36ers (96-89) when they easily covered the spread.  So with both teams in the scoring positive expect this match to be a high scoring affair.


This series is tied 1-1 with the Crocs winning the first match at home (80-77) followed by the Kings winning in Sydney (87-78).  There will be plenty of fireworks in this game and watch for highlight performances from Townsville’s Jordair Jett, three point specialists in Norton and Steindl and new comer Samhan who is proving to be very hard to move in the paint.  The Kings will be led by Josh Childress who bounced back from a seven point effort against the Wildcats with a 27 point game in Adelaide.  Cadee, Garlepp and Thornton will also be players to watch.  The Crocs will win at home.

Option 1 – Townsville Crocs to win at $1.45
