Perth Wildcats Team News

Not too long ago, both the Wildcats and United were untouchable in the league and were considered to be the premier title favourites. With the arrival of the new season, things have changed dramatically.

Perth had a terrible year, but managed to regroup and opened the new season in scintillating form, winning all three of their games so far. New head coach John Rillie can be more than satisfied with his team´s performances, and the same could be said for Perth´s ardent Red Army.

Despite missing two key pieces in TaShawn Thomas and Corey Webster, the Wildcats put on a show from behind the arc against Cairns four days ago and came away with an emphatic 105:76 victory. Their sharpshooters were as hot as a blowtorch, knocking down a record-breaking 18 threes to seal the fate of the feisty Taipans side.

Melbourne United Team News

Unlike their old title rivals, United haven´t been able to stabilize themselves after the departure of Matthew Dellavedova. Even before Delly they had a powerful lineup with Jock Landale that seemed unbeatable, but at the moment they are not a mere shadow of a team they used to be.

United opened the season with a dramatic overtime victory over the Breakers, but when the defending champions arrived to town, all of their flaws were exposed. The Kings started running riot at the John Cain Arena from the opening tip-off and were up by as much 38 points at the start of the third frame.

Melbourne currently find themselves between a rock and a hard place and things will hardly improve at one of the most hostile arenas in the league.

Perth Wildcats vs. Melbourne United Prediction

These team met during the NBL Blitz, when United surprinsingly came away with a convincing 90:63 win. Things are much different now, but we decided to avoid backing Perth to cover the spread.

Even though they are underperforming, one can never write off Melbourne and their head coach Dean Vickerman. If United want to get going, they have to step up defensively. On the other hand, Perth have been tremendous on the defensive end, limiting all three of their opponents so far below or around 75 points.
