Where: Perth Arena
Despite powering their way to another NBL title last season on the back of a perfect post-season of five straight wins, the Perth Wildcats maintain they’re not eyeing off an historic three-peat.
The reigning two-times NBL champions are on the brink of winning three straight for the first time in their storied history.
Having NBL MVP Bryce Cotton in the line-up is a major boost after the 25-year-old, who averaged 23 PPG last season, turned down more lucrative offers abroad to stay in the jungle.
The Wildcats have added some US College star power in their roster with the signing of former North Carolina Tar Heels star Jean Pierre Tokoto.
Brisbane have been the victim of their own success with star import and NBL defensive player of the year Torrey Craig impressing so much in the NBA Summer League, he was signed by the Denver Nuggets.
Huge blow for the Bullets to lose Craig and in the toughest environment in the NBL, this one is going the way of the Wildcats in the jungle.
Perth at $1.40
Brisbane at $2.95
Tip: Perth at $1.40
Line tip: Brisbane +5.5
