Quick Game Facts

  • Gun Bullets playmaker Nathan Sobey remains out of the Bullets team and will miss this match
  • Seven of the Bullets last eight matches at John Cain Arena have gone over the projected Game Total
  • Brisbane has covered the points line in 6 consecutive games following an away loss
  • The Bullets have struggled away from home this season, winning just 1 from 5 matches
  • These two sides have played 10 times and the winning margin has been 10 points or more on 8 occasions
  • Brisbane has lost 5 of their past 6 matches
  • The Game Total average for Brisbane’s 5 away games this season, excluding overtime, is just 151 points

Quick Player Facts – South East Melbourne Phoenix

  • Kyle Adnam has an average of 15.2 points in his last 5 games against the Bullets
  • Mitch Creek averages 4.8 assists in his last 5 games against the Bullets
  • Mitch Creek has had 20+ points in 5 of his last 7 matches
  • Ryan Broekhoff has had 7 steals across his last 2 games
  • Ryan Broekhoff has had 5+ rebounds in 8 consecutive matches
  • Kyle Adnam has scored 12+ points in 5 of his last 6 games

Quick Player Facts – Brisbane Bullets

  • Robert Franks has recovered from a mini slump. He is averaging 18.3 points across his last 3 games
  • Jason Cadee is averaging 6.7 assists across his last 3 matches


The Bullets are still without Nathan Sobey and although they have been competitive without him, he is their main playmaker.

The Bullets have struggled on the road in recent times, but did nearly upset a Sydney Kings side last week, that was well below their best.

The Phoenix are coming off a loss and will be looking to bounce back. They will be tough to beat at home and will more than likely play high intensity defence, which will make it tough for the Bullets.

The Sydney Kings did not look convincing in their 71-69 win over the Brisbane Bullets last Sunday, but got over the line with a late dunk and assist, from star import Jaylen Adams.

Check it out below.

The Perth Wildcats have been very good at backing up losses in recent times, and the Kings will have their hands full trying to stop Bryce Cotton.

The Wildcats will more than likely turn on the defensive intensity in this game, and the Kings star players will need to have big matches and hit tough shots, to have any chance.

The Wildcats may very well get their revenge on a Saturday Night in Sydney and win a close one.

Prediction – Perth Wildcats (Win) ⭐
