NBL Round 9 begins on a Thursday evening, and we have a couple of the more talented teams going at it at the WIN Entertainment Centre.
The Illawarra Hawks will host the Perth Wildcats and will be looking for revenge after their loss against Perth last Saturday.
They regrouped after that loss and made easy work of the Adelaide 36ers. They will be confident they can get their revenge on the Wildcats.
The Perth Wildcats looked good in their win over the Hawks and are a chance in any game when Bryce Cotton is making plays and hitting shots.

The Illawarra Hawks shot the ball at just 19% from the 3 point line in their loss to the Wildcats, but did protect the ball and only had four turnovers.
In a short period of time, they turned around the poor shooting form and went 15/30 from the three-point line in their 100-89 win over the 36ers. Harry Froling went 8/10 from the three in an impressive display.
The NBL continues to be hard to predict at the moment, but the Hawks found some form a couple of days back and will fancy themselves in this one.
