SEM Phoenix vs Sydney Kings Prediction, Feb 10

Round 11 of NBL22 kicks off on a Thursday evening, and the South East Melbourne Phoenix will be hosting the Sydney Kings at John Cain Arena.

The South East Melbourne Phoenix are coming off an impressive win against the Illawarra Hawks on Monday Night, in which they won the match 87-88 in Illawarra.

The Phoenix are now second on the NBL Table with a 7-3 record and will be looking to challenge the Perth Wildcats, who are on top.

The Sydney Kings made easy work of the New Zealand Breakers in their match on Sunday, but they have yet to live up to the hype of being Championship contenders, which many predicted them to be this season.

A brilliant Thursday Night of Hoops to look forward to between the South East Melbourne Phoenix and the Sydney Kings.

The NBL22 Season has been very difficult to predict this season, but that has been a consistency of recent seasons. With all the game cancellations and changes to rosters, any side can win on any given day. It makes for some close and unpredictable results at times.

Here are some NBL Tips and NBL Predictions for the SEM Phoenix vs Sydney Kings on Thursday, February 10 2022.

Quick Player Facts

  • Mitch Creek has an average of 23.5 points per game in his last 4 games against the Kings
  • Ryan Broekhoff has been crashing the boards, averaging 9.6 rebounds across his last 5 games
  • Kings guard Jaylen Adams is one of the top players in the league at the moment. He is averaging 24.2 points, 5.6 rebounds and 6.0 assists across his last 5 games
  • Jarell Martin has had 8+ rebounds in 7 straight matches

The Sydney Kings come into this match knowing that the last time they stepped onto John Cain Arena, they were embarrassed by Melbourne United in an 89-47 loss. They have regrouped since then, but have not got on a long run of wins just yet.

The Phoenix were outplayed by the Perth Wildcats the last time they played on their home court, and this match is yet another difficult one to predict.

Xavier Munford is a late out for this match and is set to be replaced by veteran guard Adam Gibson for the Phoenix.

The Kings have the hot player in the league right now in Jaylen Adams and may also have an advantage in the big man department, with Phoenix big man Zhou Qi currently out of form.

Another tough game to pick, but with Munford out, the Kings have an edge.

Prediction – Sydney Kings (Win) ⭐
