COMING off a narrow loss to Perth, Sydney Flames will like their chances tonight in Bendigo against a Spirit team which now has lost Leilani Mitchell for the rest of the season. But it's the first of three matches for the Flames in a difficult round which also sees WNBL leader Adelaide in Townsville then playing at home 36 hours later.

Cooking Cooks was kooky: Rd.8a Wrap

In: NBL — Monday, 24 Jan, 2022

Here's the thing. What do we know? NBL Rd.8

In: NBL — Friday, 21 Jan, 2022

NOW here's the thing. NBL clubs aren't leaking much info pre-game about just who among their roster currently are most recently coming out of COVID health and safety protocols so any predictions here for Round 8 are based on the pretext EVERYONE is equally healthy. Which they're not.

In: NBL — Tuesday, 18 Jan, 2022

MATTHEW Dellavedova had a lifetime high, New Zealand rocked Sydney's boat, the Bullets fired up a record, Cam Bairstow was at his best and NBL Round 7 was memorable for many of the right reasons for a change. Delly's 33 points to lead United to a road win over Illawarra included 7 triples.
