Thursday Night NBL Action in Brisbane, and it is the Brisbane Bullets that will take on the Perth Wildcats at the Nissan Arena.
The Brisbane Bullets are coming off a sizeable loss to the New Zealand Breakers without big man Aron Baynes and will be looking to gain some form under interim coach Sam Mackinnon.
The Perth Wildcats are coming off a home loss to the Adelaide 36ers and are relying heavily on Bryce Cotton to stay in matches. They will need more from imports TaShawn Thomas and Brady Manek, whilst Todd Blanchfield will also need to step up if they are to compete this season.
Here is a Brisbane Bullets vs Perth Wildcats Prediction for Thursday, December 1st 2022.

This is a tough match to predict as the Brisbane Bullets have recently sacked coach James Duncan and are starting off fresh.
The Wildcats may have an advantage in this clash as Bullets big man Aron Baynes is out, and this may help some of their bigs have more of an impact.
The Bullets are really out of form at the moment and if Bryce Cotton has a big match the Wildcats will be tough to beat despite their recent record.
