yeah, playing well (at times) without him, but not something that can't be covered if other players pull their fingers out and play as well as we know they're capable of...

More of a concern is the lack of defence (not something that Jules would have fixed anyways) and just general intensity... So frustrating watching Newls the last couple of games, it's like the pre-season all over again... Shots not dropping is one thing, but ugh, getting out hustled...

THE Sydney Kings are expected to sign SEABL star Garrett Jackson.

Wow... winning both games on the weekend... who woulda thought that would have happened? Have to admit that after only beating a depleted Brisvegas by 3 I wasn't full of much hope against NZ, but it was a very fun game to watch for a change... Lots of points coming from great D like the start of the season...

NZ playing well recently had me doubting the Kings too, but they played very well!
Let's hope it continues through to the finals.

Sooooooo... with a win IN Perth required to have ANY chance at playoffs, is it too early to start a Kings 2017/18 thread?

I can't help but wonder what it could have been like if Jules had of been healthy, we had of chased Mitch McCarron and brought in a proper PG...

Sanders* / McDowell-White
Lisch / Cadee
Newls / McCarron
Whittington* / Tommy / Moller
Maric / Khazzouh

at the end of the season just seems like a much more well-rounded team...

Is it just me, or does Kevin Lisch look like he suddenly turned 40 overnight?

Run into the ground by a coach who thinks you can play major minutes at full intensity at both ends.

Have you seen Perth's games at Perth Arena this season? 9-4 record, and a few of those wins close games that could have gone either way. I wouldn't be pencilling this in as a win to either team. Sydney very capable of pulling out a victory in my opinion.

If that's the case, Gleeson will be sacked on the spot.

So win/win for all parties concerned?

Putting their non-standard home record aside, there's no way the Kings can pull out a win with how they've been playing... I was nearly heckling Whittington at times on Saturday, or I would have if I was close enough for it to make a difference... At times actually, it might have nearly been quiet enough to be heard from my seat...

As for Kev, he's exhausted and no bloody wonder... No other real back court help, certainly no help at the defensive end... This whole "Kev can run the team, we don't need a proper PG" bullshit was so clear when he was signed that it was a mistake... Olympics, big pre-season, rushed China trip and playing him nearly 35mpg... Doesn't take Einstein to figure out this was going to happen...

The Kings have the most unbalanced squad in the league. It has too many big men, Marić, Khazzouh, Powell, Garlepp, Hill, Whittington, Liu (DP) and Moller (DP) are all post players. The rest of the squad consists of swingmen Jackson, Newley, Prewster, Lisch, Harding (DP), Tolovae (DP) and McDowell-White (DP). Poor Jason Cadee is the only real point guard in the team.

With such an unbalanced squad, the Kings have already overachieved this season. IMO their record this season should be similar to the Bullets.

So if Sydney are no chance, will you give me $100 if they win? In return l'll give you $20 if the Wildcats win. That's an easy $20 if you feel its beyond doubt?

That's better odds than he normally gets since he always over does it on the spread

Leave my spreads out of it, thanks Daevo

If it was Win and we're in, I'd gladly sacrifice a hundred on it, but even my dark jinx power won't help this round...
