Sydney Kings Team News

The reigning champions will immediately face adversity after the long break when the Hawks arrive to their arena. One of their best players Xavier Cooks sprained his ankle and will miss today´s game, which is a huge blow for their rotation.

Fortunately for them, they are playing against the bottom-placed and demoralized Illawarra Hawks. It is probably one of the rare matchups in the league that the Kings are able to win without one of their starters, but they could experience more problems than usual.

Illawarra Hawks Team News

The Hawks are having one of their worst seasons ever. Their players and fans had high hopes during the preaseason and made some bold predictions, but no one predicted that the Hawks would only have one win after eight games and dwell at the bottom of the league.

They achieved their lone victory of the season around a month and a half ago. Currently on a 7-game losing streak, they have to salvage their season away from home against their biggest rivals. Even though the Kings are dealing with an important absence, the Hawks are experiencing problems in their roster as well and will have to enter the game without Peyton Siva and George King.

Sydney Kings vs. Illawarra Hawks Prediction

Playing without one of their main contributors is always a handicap, but the Kings have a long rotation with plenty of weapons to take care of business at home against the lowly Hawks.

We decided to avoid spread betting because both teams are dealing with important absences. Sydney should be able to win and it wouldn´t be surprising if it would be a double-digit victory. Their defense has been at a high level this season, which should be enough to keep the undermanned Hawks below 80 points.
