The Sydney Kings only shot the ball at 30% from the field in their loss to Melbourne United on Boxing Day, but have had some time to regroup.
Coming up against the elite Illawarra defence, may prove difficult, but the away side keeps winning this matchup.
The Hawks are a decent well-coached outfit and have a lot of offensive firepower. They will be tough to beat at home, but it is hard to be confident with all the game cancellations and stoppages.
The Hawks will fancy themselves in this match.
