#HardBall Podcast – Episode 12 feat. Daniel Johnson
Round 14 Recap This week on a special live episode of the #HardBall Podcast Tommy Greer, Liam Santamaria and Brett Thomas recap all the major story-lines from Round 14 of the NBL. The boys discuss Adelaide’s massive win in New Zealand, the impressive 2-0 week from the Cairns Taipans and Melbourne’s one point victory over the high-flying Illawarra Hawks. The boys also chat about Illawarra’s demolition of the Sydney Kings, discuss the close finish that took place in Melbourne and establish a search party to locate Perth’s missing offense. Daniel Johnson Interview Adelaide 36ers big man Daniel Johnson has been a dominant force in recent weeks, capped off by Saturday night’s impressive 25-point, 12-rebound performance in New Zealand. The former All-NBL First Teamer currently leads the NBL in rebounding (9.9 per game) and ranks top 10 in scoring, with a season average of 16.6 points per game. Johnson joins the boys to discuss his outstanding recent play, playing Dodge Ball at 36ers training, the likelihood of Adelaide making the finals and what it’s like to play with Jerome Randle. Round 15 Preview Round 15 of #HardBall – the Chemist Warehouse Heritage Round – involves two crucial home and away sets with Cairns and Melbourne doing battle on Wednesday and Friday and New Zealand and Illawarra competing on Thursday and Sunday. Out west, the Perth Wildcats will be trying to halt their three-game losing streak when they host Sydney on Friday night. Meanwhile, the Adelaide 36ers will be looking to extend their three-game winning streak with a road win over Townsville, something they’re yet to achieve this season.
