When: Thursday, October 12, 7.30pm (AEDT)
Where: Cairns Convention Centre
The unbeaten Snakes welcome the high octane 36ers to the Snakepit in a battle between two of the league’s form teams.
Cairns are sitting pretty at 2-0 after the opening round, but will be without big man Nate Jawai, who suffered a foot injury in the Taipans’ season opener against the Hawks.
The 36ers have been prolific through their opening two games, registering 97 in a two-point loss to Melbourne United and 105 in a nine-point win over the Kings.
Prolific guards Nathan Sobey (27 points v Melbourne United) and Ramon Moore (22 points v Kings) have led the scoring for the 36ers.
The Taipans’ stingy defence faces its sternest test yet against the high-scoring 36ers and in the battle between offence and defence, the Taipans and their stingy ‘D’ should get them home in a tight one.
