Melbourne United Team News

Melbourne United entered the intra-city derby against the South East Phoenix as underdogs, but it didn´t affect them at all as they crushed their fierce rivals by 25 points.

It was a superb all-around display by the former NBL force, but their 14 threes and 45% shooting from deep is what made the difference. After this convincing win, United have left us confused. Are they finally picking up their game, or was this just an accidental outburst? Today´s game against the 36ers should give us all the answers.

Adelaide 36ers Team News

After seven games played, we didn´t think we would be writing about a struggling Adelaide 36ers side. Their 3-4 record currently puts them in 8th place two spots below the playoff zone, so the recent international break was just what the 36ers needed to reorganize.

The problem with Adelaide are the unrealistic expectations imposed on them after their preseason win against the Phoenix Suns. Without a doubt they have a team packed with offensive firepower and look poised to fight for the title, but they need to reset and figure out the roles in their squad.

We hope they did just that during the break.

Melbourne United vs. Adelaide 36ers Prediction

United have replaced their import player Jordan Caroline with Marcus Lee, but he will be unavailable for today´s clash. Recent returnee Shea Ili will also be out, while Mason Peatling finally returns from his longterm knee injury.

Hosts will start this game with only one natural center, which could spell trouble for their team. The 36ers have a very tall frontcourt full of experience, so we would give a slight advantage to Adelaide in this game.
