There’s so much on the line for both of these sides. A win for Perth would guarantee top spot on the ladder heading into the finals, while a victory for the 36ers would also secure fourth-place and a date with either the Wildcats or Melbourne next week.
After a late season hump, Perth have bounced back strongly to win five straight games, the most recent of which being a 95-86 win over the Kings in overtime. The Wildcats have also won four-straight home games, but there’s reason to suggest the 36ers could spoil the party.
Adelaide lost to Melbourne last week in a closely fought two-point game. It’s been an up and down season for the 36ers, but keep in mind, they have won three of their last five over Perth – including a one-point road win at RAC Arena back in September..
Points have proven hard to come by when these two teams meet. The points tally has failed to go over 200 in their last five games, but the question is, can Adelaide handle the pressure with their season on the line?
With five wins in their last six road games, the answer most certainly is yes.
Tip: Perth Wildcats at $1.56
