Kings the “real deal”

Sydney superstar Jaylen Adams has declared Saturday night’s win over the Wildcats in Perth proves the Kings are the real deal.

“We are the real deal, bro. That (Perth win) was our most impressive win of the season. I think we are going to make a deep push in the playoffs,” Adams said via Newscorp.

No import swap in Perth

The Perth Wildcats will not be signing John Brown to replace Michael Frazier II, after the deadline passed for Brown to have enough games to be eligible for the finals.

“Both players have been extremely professional during this unique timeline of events,” Wildcats GM of basketball Danny Mills said via The West Australian.

Morrison challenges Wildcats

Perth coach Scott Morrison says the Wildcats have plenty of work to do, questioning if the squad is as good as people think they are.

“I think our team needs to realise that perhaps we’re not as talented as some people would like to think or that our record stated before this weekend,” Morrison said via The West Australian.

Phoenix in “dogfight” 

South East Melbourne Phoenix captain Kyle Adnam has demanded better from himself and the team, as they fight for their finals hopes.

“We are in a dogfight now, we have Cairns, United, and New Zealand coming up and all those teams will fight, I challenge the boys and myself,” Adnam said via The Age.

Goorjian keeps tabs on winning Hawks

Illawarra Hawks interim coach Jacob Jackomas says Brian Goorjian was still heavily involved in yesterday’s win over Melbourne, as he was home isolating with COVID.

“I’ve worked with him for however long it’s been and he lets you do your thing, but he’s supportive and he makes you feel good about the decisions you’re making. There was obviously a phone call at halftime, let’s not kid ourselves, he was involved in the process. It’s his team, we make decisions together,” Jackomas said via the Illawarra Mercury.

Taipans gain pride

Cairns Taipans coach Adam Forde was proud of his team’s win over New Zealand yesterday, as it kept them off the bottom of the ladder.

“It’s a bit of a gut check and as grindey as it was and as foul heavy as both teams were…it was good the guys took that opportunity to get that win,” Forde said via the Cairns Post.
