They are coming off a 86-80 loss to the Phoenix on Saturday Night and are not getting enough from their big men, and third import Michael Frazier has struggled recently.

In the Perth Wildcats five away losses, the average amount of points they are giving up is 92. When they restrict sides to 80 points or less, they have a 7-0 record.

They come up against a side that has been settling for the three-point shot in recent games, but has been hitting them at a high percentage.

Tasmania averages less than 80 points per game this season, and may find it tough to contain guard Bryce Cotton, who is coming off a poor performance.

The Wildcats defence has not looked as intense in recent games, and they have been relying on offence to stay in matches. Cranking up the defence, and not giving the JackJumpers open three-point looks, will go a long way to winning this match.

Tasmania home games have been very low scoring this season, and that gives the Wildcats every chance to control this match.
