    South East Melbourne has been announced as being the 9th team for the 2019/20 season.

    The last time they had a team (South East Melbourne Magic) was between 1992-98, winning two championships in 1992 and 1996, and making the finals in all seven seasons (finished all in the top three). They later merged with the North Melbourne Giants for the 1998/99 season to become the Victorian Titans (later changing to the Victorian Giants) before closing up at the end of the 2003/04 season.

    Wildcats only down by 43 at H/T in their match against Utah Jazz, 77-34. The match is being shown on ESPN2.

    They'll also be playing the Denver Nuggets, Saturday morning (Perth time).

    The Adelaide 36ers v Utah Jazz game will be televised on FTA on 9Go! 9am Saturday morning (WST).

    They played better in the second half.
    Utah Jazz won by 58, 130-72.

    They were terrrible.
    Would want to improve on that to make the playoffs this season.
  • TiversTivers    6,988 posts
    On this effort - Kings are going to romp in our season !

    Bryce Cotton finished with 33 points.

    Cotton can ball, when he wants to.
  • TiversTivers    6,988 posts
    Steindl shoots better from the NBA line than the NBL......
  • TiversTivers    6,988 posts
    All the water cooler talk in my office today.............. Season begins !

    For mine - Wildcats are in T Rubble.
    Top 3 spots are a lock (Sydney, Melbourne, Auckland).
    That leaves 5 teams battling for that 1 remaining playoffs position (and for Wildcats - to extend their unbroken run, now at 32? seasons)
  • PAULPAUL    2,427 posts
    Wildcats start the seson with an eight-point win "on the road" against the 36ers, 99-91. The Bullets won the season-opener, beating the Breakers in NZ, 86-73.
  • TiversTivers    6,988 posts
    I couldn’t have been more wrong today.
    NZ get rolled by Brisbane !
    And then Cats win at Adelaide...
  • TiversTivers    6,988 posts
    And then Illawarra takes Melbourne to Double OT...
  • TiversTivers    6,988 posts
    Make that TRIPLE OT !!!
  • TiversTivers    6,988 posts

    Sydney up 80 - 75 with 7 mins remaining.
    Went on to score only 3 more points for the rest of the match, and lose by 11.......!
  • TiversTivers    6,988 posts
    Cairns win at Brisbane tonight now means the first 5 games of the season have all gone to the away team......

    Wildcats are the only home team to win in R1, thrashing the Hawks 101-61 at Perth Arena this afternoon.

    Earlier today, United lost to the Breakers in Melbourne, 81-88. First time in NBL history that the first six games in a season were won by the away team.

    That was fun! My 1st time watching the Wildcats since 1982 at Perry Lakes, with a crowd of around 500.

    Going again next break, 27th v Melbourne I think.
    Got seats behind the hoop, the daughter wants to wave a 'head' around when the opposition are lining up a free throw.

    Behind the basket if me fav angle (and where our seats are - stage end).
    Much better for watching bball (IMO) as it's as much a lateral game as up and down.
    Also viewing from that angle makes you feel more part of it (ie the view you'd have from on court) v's being just an observer.

    In saying all that................game v MEL should be a ripper.
    Nice week to have off !

    I’m at the Bendat centre yesterday...
    Look to my left - Perth Glory headquarters... top of the league.
    Look to my right - Perth Wildcats headquarters... top of the league.
    Wonderful stuff.

    Easy wins in Game 1 of the Semi-Finals for Perth (89-59) and Melbourne (95-73) tonight.

    Brisbane equalled the NBL record for the lowest points scored in the 4th quarter of a game, 4 points. The other team to achieve this was the Canberra Cannons v South East Melbourne Magic, back in 1997.

    Perth have booked their spot in the Grand Final, clean sweeping the series 2-0, winning 84-79. It will be their 14th appearance in the Grand Final series.
