Perth Wildcats vs Tasmania Prediction, Dec 19th
The last game for the Sunday Triple-Header of NBL Action, and we have the Perth Wildcats hosting the Tasmania JackJumpers at RAC Arena for their first-ever regular-season Head to Head Matchup.
The Wildcats are coming off an impressive 83-70 Friday Night Round 3 NBL Win over the Brisbane Bullets. On the back of 29 Points from Bryce Cotton and an MVP Performance for veteran Jesse Wagstaff, the Wildcats were able to get their revenge over the Bullets.
The Tasmania JackJumpers come into this game with a 1 and 2 record and couldn’t’ handle the intense defence from the Cairns Taipans in their Round 2 NBL22 encounter,
This will be an interesting spot for former Perth Wildcat Will Magnay as he comes back to Perth, but his form has been less than impressive over the past two games.
A decent matchup to end the Sunday of basketball, and here is a Perth Wildcats vs Tasmania JackJumpers Prediction.

The Perth Wildcats defence was on Friday Night against the Bullets, and they forced 19 Turnovers and scored 19 points from Turnovers.
The JackJumpers had a tough time in Cairns last week, and if they face a similar type of defensive effort, it could be a long afternoon for the JackJumpers.
Perth Wildcats veteran Jesse Wagstaff was an X-Factor on Friday Night, scoring 19 Points, and Bryce Cotton shot the ball better at an 11/19 clip from the field.
Will Magnay could be a wildcard for the JackJumpers to have any chance as the Wildcats are struggling in the big man department at the minute, but his recent form would suggest that may not happen.
The Wildcats may be on the road for an extended period after this match, and they would want their record to be 4-1 before heading away.
The Wildcats will more than likely win this game comfortably.
