Adelaide 36ers vs South East Melbourne Phoenix Preview
It’s just about even money for this game, however, with Adelaide 36ers young-gun and future NBA prospect Josh Giddey being ruled out I’m very much on board the South East Melbourne Phoenix getting the win, as the two sides meet yet again for the second time in a number of days.
Giddey has been ruled out as a result of his head hitting the floor after a dunk in the opening minutes of the double-overtime of the 36ers thrilling win against the Phoenix on Sunday night.
He starred in that game, with 16 points, 11 rebounds and seven assists.
I’m making the big calls and giving the massive hot takes at this early stage of the 2021 NBL season – no Josh Giddey, no Adelaide 36ers.
It’s time for the South East Melbourne Phoenix to get one up from Adelaide.
A heartbreaking loss in double overtime is never a great way to start a season, but they’ve got to dust themselves off quickly and will come out all guns blazing.
Phoenix debutants Yanni Wetzell and Keifer Sykes were standouts, with Wetzell’s 24 points and 10 rebounds made him the first local player to get over 20 points and 10 rebounds on debut in the NBL since 2007.
Keifer Skyes 11 assists were the most by an NBL debutant since 1992.
Along with the debutants, Mitch Creek dominated with 30 points, 8 rebounds and 6 assists.
Not only are these recaps keeping the stats lovers happy, but it also gives plenty of food for thought to back South East Melbourne Phoenix for the opening game of the round this Wednesday night.
