Quick Game Facts

  • These two sides have played some high scoring matches in recent times. The combined Game Total average for their last 5 matchups has been 196, excluding overtime
  • Both sides are on a three-game losing streak
  • The Brisbane Bullets have won their last 5 games against the Cairns Taipans

Quick Player Facts

  • Nathan Sobey has lit it up against the Taipans in recent times. He has averaged 27.2 points and 5.8 assists in his last 5 matches against Cairns
  • Taipans bench big man Nathan Jawai has an average of 12.5 points and 5.3 rebounds in his last 4 matches against the Bullets
  • Lamar Patterson is the in-form Bullet at the moment. Across his last 4 games, he has an average of 19.8 points and 5.5 rebounds
  • Tahjere McCall has had 5+ rebounds and 6+ assists in 4 straight matches
  • Jarrod Kenny has had 4+ assists in 4 straight games


Nathan Sobey has a great record against Cairns in recent times, but this time he may face an elite defender in Tahjere McCall. He is also a Game Time decision, so watch for the last minute teams.

The Taipans have their injury worries at the moment, but so do Brisbane, with up to four players potentially out of this one.

With all the late changes and game cancellations, the NBL has been difficult to predict. Brisbane are the better side though and expect Robert Franks to find some form after a mini slump.

Prediction – Brisbane Bullets (Win) ⭐

The Wildcats star players are still scoring points and if they get a little bit of help from their bench, they will be tough to stop.
