Brisbane vs South East Melbourne, NBL Prediction Round 7
The Brisbane Bullets host the South East Melbourne Phoenix in the only NBL22 matchup on Saturday, January 15th 2022.
The Bullets are coming off a loss to the New Zealand Breakers last Sunday and will be looking to regroup. That was a match that they probably should have won, but 20 turnovers will always bring the opposing side right into the equation.
The South East Melbourne Phoenix have not played any basketball since the 18th of December in which they lost 84-73 to the Sydney Kings. Before that loss, they were in excellent form, but such a long break may impact this match.
These two sides played five times last season, and the Bullets got the edge 3-2.
Here are some NBL Tips and NBL Predictions for Brisbane vs South East Melbourne in Round 7 of NBL22.

Both sides are coming off a loss, but the Bullets have played a game of basketball a lot more recently than the Phoenix.
Brisbane have shown they can turn it on this season with an impressive win over the Wildcats out west, and they toppled the Hawks at home.
The Phoenix will be a tough team to beat, but the Bullets know what they need to fix and are a chance to win this one at home.
