A lot of people are picking the Perth Wildcats to take this one making a third and final game back in New Zeland. The breakers have a had unlucky run going into the this series with players suffering from a sickness and injury (Abercrombie, Jackson). But they managed to get the job done at home but can they in probably they hardest away venue in the league. The Perth fans are knowledgable, loud and belligerent. They make it hard venue and the refs in most cases make it harder on that court. From the games iv seen the Wildcats are also probebly the most aggressive team in the league and arent afraid to foul, in fact the way they play it looks like they straight out foul and hope they dont get called.
If this was NBA Jam cj's clutch would be at least a 9 or possibly a 10. He is that player you want shooting the ball going into a close game with seconds left on the clock. I dont know how they stop him late in the game without opeing other player for the breakers for easy baskets.
Can anyone stop the forcxe that is Kevin Lisch? He was the top scorer last game with a game high 27 points. Last time the breakers played the Wildcats he also had 23. He is the man for the Wildcats but they cant put to much defense on him as this will open the copious amount of other offensive threats the Wildcats have. Whether its Jesse Wagstaff draining that 3 ball or Matt Knight and Luke Neville under that basket, then theres also the player I love to hate Shawn Redhage who is another threat inside and out.
This will be another great game which i beleive and hope will again go into overtime. The refs did a very good job in New Zealand probably the best reffing iv seen all season and if they can maintain that it will be close one going in New Zealands favour by 3 in my humble opinion. But if the crowd sways the refs as iv seen so many times in Perth the wildcats will have it by 8.
