Adelaide 36ers Team News

Not even the most optimistic JackJumpers fans thought their team would absolutely dismantle the 36ers on Thursday and inflict them a heavy 25-point loss. It is safe to say that the 36ers opener didn´t go as planned, as the JackJumpers stormed in front in the opening quarter and blew the game wide open immediately.

Adelaide didn´t have much time to process what happened and will have to recover swiftly with a dangerous Illawarra side arriving to town. With the support of their fans, the 36ers are expected to rebound and prove their win over the Phoenix Suns was no fluke.

Illawarra Hawks Team News

After losing Justin Robinson, the Hawks have been flexing their rotation in order to stay competitive. It worked against a decimated Phoenix side at the Gong ten days ago, but the Wildcats had a bit too much in their locker in the previous round.

Illawarra had a healthy 8-point lead in Perth at the half, but then disappeared in the second half. When the third quarter began, the hosts started exhibiting their old suffocating defense and limited the Hawks to only 22 points.

If the Hawks have another scoring drought today, they will not last long. They will need Tyler Harvey to quickly rediscover his scoring touch after a miserable display in the West, which gives us an opportunity to take an interesting player prop bet.

Adelaide 36ers vs Illawarra Hawks Prediction

Despite playing undermanned after Justin Robinson suffered a season-ending injury in the opener, the Hawks are putting up solid performances. They managed to take care of business at home against the Melbourne Phoenix and were on the verge of upsetting the Wildcats at The Jungle.

On the other hand, the 36ers can´t play any worse than they did on Thursday. The Hawks have been sound defensively, but they will have a tough time containing the powerful home offense, which was silenced in the opening game and only scored 72 points.
