The Illawarra Hawks have been inconsistent this season, but Adelaide has a terrible record away from home in recent times and the Hawks have stepped it up defensively against them this season.

Expect backup guard from the Hawks Xavier Rathan-Mayes to be given more responsibility as a playmaker, as he has looked good in that role in recent games and is a decent passer.

The Hawks should bounce back here, but not a lock on their current form.

Prediction – Illawarra Hawks (Win) ⭐⭐
