Quick Facts

  • Perth has won the final quarter in each of its last 7 games
  • Perth have won 4 out of their last 5 regular season games against the 36ers


Adelaide has won the last couple at home against the Wildcats, but they are coming off an unconvincing loss to the Taipans. They committed 20 turnovers in that match and only shot the ball at 22% from beyond the arc.

The 36ers may have a slight advantage in the big man department, and we may see a bit more from Kai Sotto, but the Wildcats are loaded with talented players that can put the ball in the hoop.

With all the match delays and players being out of commission, it is hard to pick a winner at the moment. The 36ers have not looked great in recent times and need the win. They should be tough at home, but the Wildcats may get this one done.
