    Sydney Kings did ok against the NBA Utah Jazz...lost by 25...but the bookmakers line was 27.5 so stayed under that and after quarter time was a relatively tight contest. The Kings won the second quarter by 8. After quarter time was only around three points in it after trailing by about 22 at quarter time.

    Derek Cooke Jr. is just the third import to not score for the Wildcats in their NBL debut, joining Mike Spears (2000) and Sunday Adebayo (2002). He was only on court for just over six minutes and didn't attempt a shot tonight.
  • TiversTivers    6,542 posts
    Why was the go with him ?
    I thought his few minutes he played quite well - defensively obviously.
    Haven't seen it mentioned in media reports as yet.
    Should it not be due to injury / fitness - I'd think he will be home by Christmas.

    Oklahoma City only beat Melbourne United by one! The bookies set the line at 31.5. Some had 32.5. Nearly the upset of the century.

    They certainly seem to be one of the best run organisations, hence  their longevity at the top, so no doubt they are aware of what they need.
