This could well be an early season preview of the NBL Grand Final as the first placed Wildcats entertain the second placed Melbourne United in the jungle.
The top of the table clash between the league’s last remaining undefeated teams delivers the ultimate battle between the Wildcats’ defence and United’s high-octane offence.
Melbourne have put up 99 points in their opening two games and the projected return of the hot shooting Chris Goulding (pictured above) adds even more punch to United’s offence.
If Wildcats guard Damian Martin marks Goulding, it could be the duel which proves decisive.
Perth has always been a team which likes to be dominant in the paint and big man Angus Brandt (pictured above) is providing them with a strong presence under the glass.
Brandt was the catalyst to the Wildcats’ comeback victory over the Hawks and they’ll need him to dominate again against Melbourne.

Tip: Perth at $1.67
