Seriously, NBL's Upset Round a Nightmare

In: NBL — Monday, 30 Oct, 2023

NBL tipsters experienced a nightmare NBL Round 5, with only league-leading Melbourne United fulfilling expectations, Chris Goulding alight for 33 points against Illawarra, and Brisbane closing the weekend with an upset over Tasmania.

Upsets continue rolling on

In: NBL — Sunday, 29 Oct, 2023

THE NBL's "round of upsets" continued last night with South East Melbourne staving off a fast-finishing New Zealand - not entirely unexpected given the Breakers' loss of Zylan Cheatham - and Cairns completely controlling Sydney for 40 minutes, Bul Kuol playing all of them.

Can the refs please just get out of the way?

In: NBL — Saturday, 28 Oct, 2023

TWO more big games in NBL Round 5 last night and the referees cannot help but get involved - to the detriment of all concerned - as United beats Tasmania in Hobart and the Bullets shoot down a very lame gaggle of Wildcats in Perth, a few of the local fans even voicing their disapproval.

Are the Breakers cooked with Zylan zapped?

In: NBL — Friday, 27 Oct, 2023

THE fractured foot suffered yesterday by Zylan Cheatham as New Zealand succumbed to Adelaide 85-97 at Spark Arena will see him sidelined for 6-8 weeks and the Breakers in desperate need of immediate replacement help.

Brad&Boti: Crying in Commentary

In: NBL — Thursday, 26 Oct, 2023

ROUND 4 of the NBL certainly had its highs - and lows - with the 36ers in particular doing a "Jekyll and Hyde" routine while Tasmania continued to show its class. Brad Rosen and I watched it all and have our report for you at this week's Brad&Boti podcast.

DEJAN Vasiljevic drove a stake through New Zealand's heart tonight, building on another big game from centre Isaac Humphries as Adelaide started NBL Round 5 with a monster fourth quarter that clinched a terrific 97-85 road win.

NBL Rd5 Rankings, Tips: 3 Top Game Contenders

SUPER tough call on what should rate as this round’s NBL Game of the Week, Tasmania hosting Melbourne in a top-of-the-table clash, surging South East Melbourne at home to New Zealand, or those bitey Taipans of Cairns entertaining Sydney.

NBL TotW4: A weekend of South East magic

In: NBL — Tuesday, 24 Oct, 2023

TASMANIA looked the part in beating the Kings (again) this time in Sydney. And Melbourne’s double over Illawarra and New Zealand stood out as well. But in the end, two wins – even over league lesser lights – but by a combined margin of 40 points had the Phoenix as our Round 4 Team of the Week.

JACKJUMPER import Jordon Crawford yesterday shredded defending NBL champion Sydney with 14 points in two minutes to start the fourth quarter of what ultimately would be a 105-95 road win for Tasmania and a new record high score for the fledgling club.

Yes, that's the way to win a game

In: NBL — Sunday, 22 Oct, 2023

YES, that's the way to set up a victory. Start your best five-man combination, shorten your substitution rotation, make sure players are clear on their roles, play through your strengths and, oh yeah, have your assistant coach stay in the background where he belongs.
