Comings and goings in preparation for the 2018/19 NBL season. Last updated 21 August 2018.
A double for Melbourne United puts them in sole possession of first place, while Adelaide and New Zealand stumbled.
Two losses to Perth- to the cellar-dwelling Kings, no less- drop the Wildcats to fourth on the ladder. Meanwhile, Adelaide continues to roll.
This week! The NBL plays week 14, the WNBL hands out its prestigious end-of-season awards on Twitter, and I look ahead to game 2 of the Fire and Boomers’ grand final series. Plus I put far too much thought into my #heritageround intro.
Melbourne United moves to the top of the table with their seventh straight win, while Adelaide is also on a roll and Perth deals Brisbane a potentially season-ending loss.
This week! It’s WNBL Grand Final week and I preview game 1 of the championship series. Plus the NBL now has a definite top-four and a definite everyone-else; I review week 13’s games and gloat about my tipping.
Melbourne’s winning streak turns the top two into a top three, but Perth is slightly ahead of the pack. Meanwhile, Illawarra moves into fifth at the expense of the Queensland teams.
Who’da thunk that Illawarra and Cairns would play in the highest-scoring game in the NBL so far this season? Also, something something unsportsmanlike foul rule.
