Cairns Taipans Team News
With just two rounds remaining in the NBL23 regular season, the Cairns Taipans are fighting to stay in the top 2. They mathematically secured a playoff berth with their eighth straight win over main rivals Brisbane Bullets two days ago, but there is still a lot at stake as a spot in the top 2 guarantees a place in the semi-finals.
In January, the Taipans faced a demanding task of playing without their MVP candidate Keanu Pinder, but managed to survive with the correct tactical adjustments. He will most likely miss today´s clash as well, but that shouldn´t prevent his team from beating Adelaide for the seventh straight time at home.
Adelaide 36ers Team News
The Adelaide 36ers last beat the Taipans in Queensland at the start of 2019. With their current disastrous form and a 5-game losing streak, they don´t have many things to rely on today and will enter the match as heavy underdogs.
Mathematically they still have a shot at making the playoffs, but they would have to win all of their remaining games and hope for other results to go their way. Almost a science fiction scenario, so it is safe to say that Adelaide´s season is all but over.

Cairns Taipans vs Adelaide 36ers Prediction
In the biggest fourth-quarter comeback in NBL history, the Taipans erased a 20-point deficit in the final frame on New Year´s Eve and turned the 36ers´ season upside down.
The 36ers have announced that they will fight to the end, but when they step on the floor this Monday night, they will realize how hard it is to compete without any real motivation. The hosts, on the other hand, will be highly motivated and with the support of their Orange Army, they should be able to come away with a win and cover the spread.
