The Bullets struggled against the Sydney Kings a few days back and will be looking to get back on the right track at home. This is a tough ask against Melbourne United, but if their stars come to play, they are every chance to win the match.

United have been impressive so far this season and their run has to come to an end at some stage, but they will come out firing and try and extend the winning streak to 8 games.

Another difficult match to pick, but Brisbane big man Tyrell Harrison is a game time decision. They struggled to contain the Sydney Kings big men and that may very well give United a slight edge.

Prediction – Melbourne United (Win) ⭐

These two sides have played some up tempo entertaining games in recent seasons that have been high scoring. Their previous encounters would suggest that this match may be high scoring, with a fast pace and plenty of shots put up.
