Adelaide 36ers vs Melbourne United Preview
After a very, very long off-season, the 2021 NBL season finally gets underway as the Adelaide 36ers play host to Melbourne United on Friday night.
Melbourne United go into the 2021 NBL season the hot $3 favourite to take out the competition and will want to use the season opener to make a statement.
The club lost a couple of imports over the off-season but were able to get Australian Boomer Jock Landale and Scotty Hopson from the NZ Breakers to the fold.
Many experts regard United’s starting line-up the best in the League and they’ll no doubt relish the oppurtunity to show it off when the team finally hits the court.
For the Adelaide 36ers, it’s the beginning of a new era with a new coach in Conner Henry along with a slate of new recruits such as College/NBA journeyman Donald Sloan and all-eyes will be on young-gun 18 year old Josh Giddey who should have a big impact.
Expect the season opener to be a beauty, but expect the experience of Melbourne United to get the road win to start their 2021 campaign.
