Three-Points We Learned

NBL Blitz Session One Game 1: Cairns Taipans vs Perth Wildcats Cairns Taipans 68 – Perth Wildcats 61
  •  Perth missed Jermaine Beal and Damian Martin
Without their starting backcourt, Perth focused on pounding the ball inside, going 17-from-34 inside the paint. However, they struggled outside they keyway, going just 5-from-22.
  •  Casey Prather will set the league on fire
The athletic import showed no fear when attacking the rim, which will thrill and excite the Perth Wildcats faithful. Whilst it all didn’t go to plan, he finished up with an impressive 20-points. Watch this space!
  •  Cairns talls to remain a force
The Taipans front-court will match any in the League. Coach Aaron Fearne kept true to his promise of sharing the minutes between his big men. And they matched the powerful Wildcats big men in a blow for blow performance. New signing, Mark Worthington looks to have seamlessly slotted into Fearne’s system and his presence was crucial in the win.   Game 2: Townsville Crocodiles vs New Zealand Breakers  Townsville Crocodiles 75 – New Zealand Breakers 79
  •  Cedric Jackson is the ultimate competitor
It’s a story that keeps on repeating. This guy doesn’t like to lose full-stop and he showed that with another dominant performance for Breakers. When the game was in the balance in the second half, he displayed his immense class and put simply, he was the difference between the two sides.
  •  Nick Kay is a potential Rookie of the Year
Do you remember the last time you saw someone this special? That’s the question tonight’s crowd at Townsville RSL Stadium will be asking themselves, after seeing Nick Kay compete and star for the Crocs against the League champions. He definitely looks every part a future NBL star with 18-points and 11-boards, making him the first player to score a double-double at this year’s NBL Blitz.
  • The Crocs youthful enthusiasm is infectious
Despite taking the court without both star imports, League MVP Brian Conklin and Jordair Jett, and two quality young guns in Mitch Norton and Mirko Djeric, Townsville’s fight and passion took them a long way against International quality opponents. They might be a bit raw around the edges, but that never-say-die attitude will see them stay a competitive force in this year’s competition.
