NBL21 PotW Rd2: Plus bonus Preview

CAM Oliver extending his highlight reel dunking prowess was a big feature of the round's great action but two more Taipans losses eliminated him from any Player of the Week considerations.

Adelaide 36ers centre Isaac Humphries collated back-to-back quality performances as his team went 1-1 and another big man in Jock Landale showed the great levels in his game as United further dented Cairns' season.

Tai Webster had an explosive NBL return with the Breakers in a "wind-assisted" overtime loss in Adelaide, and Perth smashed its way into the season at the Phoenix's expense, with Bryce Cotton carrying on where he left off last year.

Sydney's win over Cairns was a gem, imports Jarell Martin and Casper Ware both prominent.

But the player who stood out for us here at the Basketball On The Internet House of Sports and Ladies Hosiery, was the new Mayor of Wollongong, Hawks import Tyler Harvey.

No ordinary tiler because forget your roof, the sky is the limit for this hot-shooting southpaw, Tyler started quietly against the Bullets in Brisbane, then became completely unstoppable.

En route to 31 points including 3-of-5 threes, Harvey was a spectre for the Bullets all evening and must have left their suits wondering what to do about him.

For us, we knew exactly what to do about him, awarding him our Player of the Week nod for a job supremely well done.

HAVING tasted victory after falling just a point short the first time, the question today for the Sydney Kings in their Australia Day stoush with Brisbane is just how good is Jarell Martin? The robust pivot was huge in the win in Cairns and if Matt Hodgson remains on the injured list for the Bullets, Harry Froling will be in for a big test. Casper Ware and Nathan Sobey are sure to lock horns and this result is very important for Brisbane. To go 0-3 at home in the season's opening trio of games will make the recovery very precarious which is why they should bring their A-game. Depleted but not defeated, a Kings win would be huge.


Haven't seen enough positives though with Brisbane to take that punt.
