Perth Wildcats Team News

The Wildcats remember their last meeting with the Phoenix very well. It was the final regular season game last year and a game Perth desperately needed to win, but ended up suffering a 102:100 loss that eliminated the Wildcats from the playoffs for the first time in 35 years.

The Wildcats started the season strong with three opening wins, but lost momentum in the game against Melbourne. After losing a game they were expected to win with ease, they had the extremely difficult task of redeeming themselves in Tasmania and, as we thought, it didn´t go well.

The JackJumpers dismantled a lackadaisical Wildcats side in the second frame and continued to run riot in the second half. In the end, the Wildcats suffered one of their worst NBL losses ever, conceding over 100 points in a 103:72 defeat.

South East Melbourne Phoenix Team News

After winning their opening game against the vice-champions, the Melbourne Phoenix had a 10-day blackout period during which they lost three games in a row. However, their losing streak was not due to the team´s poor performances, but rather to their personel issues.

The team was missing numerous key rebounders and scorers, including their new import Gary Browne. After his arrival and the return of the towering Chinese center Qi Zhou and veteran Ryan Broekhoff, the Phoenix have started playing at a championship level.

Perth Wildcats vs. South East Melbourne Phoenix Prediction

The Wildcats have clearly lost momentum after two straight losses. On the other hand, the return of several high-profile players to the Phoenix lineup has revitalized their team, which has won its last two games and comes to the West with a good chance of notching another win.
