Adelaide 36ers vs Melbourne United Preview
The 36ers “host” Melbourne United at John Cain Arena.
Normally, home-court advantage is a big deal in the world of NBL, however, this is a rare occasion away court advantage comes into play.
After suffering a rare loss on the Saturday to the Wildcats, Melbourne United backed it up on Monday and handed a 88-81 defeat to the Cairns Taipans on Monday night.
The Adelaide 36ers will have 48 hours to back it up and will take plenty of confidence heading into this game after a thrilling 99-94 win over the South East Melbourne Phoenix.
Adelaide has a 6-5 record this season, with all eyes on young NBA prospect Josh GIddey in pretty much every game they play.
This will be only the second time these two sides have met this season, when Melbourne United blitzed the 36ers back in Round 1 89-65
This game will have some terrific matchups on the court and will be close, however, it’s hard to go past the “away” team in this one.
