The Illawarra Hawks have claimed the bragging rights so far this season with two wins over the Kings who will be more than up for the challenge to exact revenge away from home.
With not a lot of rounds left in the regular season today´s clash between the Hawks and the Kings will give one of these teams a decisive advantage in their fight to dethrone the first-placed Melbourne United. Both Illawarra and Sydney have more or less secured a finals spot so this Thursday we should really be in for an entertaining game of basketball with the typical fast-paced Aussie style of basketball.
The Hawks will be looking to sweep their head-to-head series against the Kings and mathematically secure a finals spot. At the moment they are cruising with a 6-game winning streak and also the highest-scoring offense since the start of March averaging an impressive 96.2 ppg. They are the only team in the league the Kings haven´t managed to beat so far and will pose a serious threat to their unbelievable 12-game winning streak.
The two hottest teams in the @NBL will lock horns on Thursday night at the @WINSportsEnt.

It seems the Sydney Kings just can´t be stopped at the moment winning 12 straight games and averaging 91.2 ppg in the last ten rounds. Their streak will be in great danger with a packed arena backing the home team but they will find additional motivation in the fact this will be their historic 1000th NBL game.
The Kings suffered two defeats so far this season at the hands of the Hawks. At the very start in December they were severely shorthanded at home and lost 92:84 and then couldn´t make amends in January going down by 97:89 away from home. With their form it is clear today´s game is a perfect opportunity to finally get the better of their fiercest rivals but the Hawks will have something to say too.
The 1000th game for the mighty purple and gold will take place on 14 April, 2022.
