Andrew Gaze is counting the minutes until injured guard Kevin Lisch’s return.
The Kings captain’s absence is being felt and without him, the last-placed 2-6 Kings face a daunting task against the revitalised Melbourne United.
Melbourne won back-to-back games in round 5, handing out a 101-84 defeat to the 36ers after demolishing the Taipans 87-65.
Whether by design or not, Melbourne’s two stars Casey Prather and Casper Ware perfectly complimented each other against the 36ers with Prather dominating the first half and Ware bringing it home in the second half.
Prather is a difficult man to mark and the Kings will their hands full trying to curtail his dual threat in the lane and from the perimeter.
