Last weekend the rhythm of the recently reinstated Brisbane Bullets was brought to a grinding halt as they were thoroughly outclassed by the Adelaide 36ers. While the Bullets lost their third match of the year, the Kings were kicking goals on their way to two straight wins in week two, defeating the Hawks and the lowly Taipans.
First match is NEW ZEALAND BREAKERS V SYDNEY KINGS, OCTOBER 20TH, 4.30PM (AEST) @ NORTH SHORE EVENTS CENTRE
The second week of an action-packed NBL season gets underway at Wollongong’s Entertainment Centre between the Illawarra Hawks and the Sydney Kings on Thursday night before the 36ers’ first of two games is played in Adelaide against Melbourne United. Also on Friday night, the Wildcats will hope to register their first win on home soil against the team they beat in last year’s finals series; the New Zealand Breakers.
The opening week of the new NBL season is boldly highlighted by the reintroduction of the Brisbane Bullets, who play the Perth Wildcats at the Entertainment Centre in Boondall to kick-start another potentially thrilling season of Aussie basketball. The Bullets opened as the UBET favourites with the home court advantage but Perth is given a pretty good chance of upstaging their eastern rivals.
