Match Info: Friday 20 March at RAC Arena, 6.30pm local/9:30pm AEDT
Defending champions Perth Wildcats simply refuse to give up. After being thumped in the third final of the 2019/20 NBL season by Sydney Kings, the Perth Wildcats rode back to form with a terrific 111-96 in Game 3 of the Grand Final series at Qudos Bank Arena on Sunday.
Perth now leads the Grand Final series by 2-1 and are just one game away from back-to-back NBL championships. The Kings are now on the backfoot and will have to bring their best in the next game, which will be played at the RAC Arena, for they won’t get another chance.
Perth Wildcats Match Form
Perth won the third final courtesy sensational performances from their two leading stars Nicholas Kay and Bryce Cotton. Cotton (31 points, seven assists) and Kay (30 points, 12 rebounds, four assists), ensured that Perth was always ahead in the game and the dynamic duo’s relentless attack took the team home comfortably.
Miles Plumlee and Terrico White also scored well. When in form, this team has the ability to score regularly that can really upset the opposition’s rhythm. And if Perth can repeat this performance at home in the next game they are in for a real chance to defend their crown.
Sydney Kings Match Form
The Sydney Kings weren’t too bad in the third final but came up short against a side that was really better on the day. The defense of the team could have been better and that is something they would address quickly.
That being said, the Kings will be happy that Jae’sean Tate (20 points), Brad Newley (19 points), Kevin Lisch (16 points) and Casper Ware (11 points) are scoring well. However, the likes of Andrew Bogut and Didi Louzada would need to do more.
