Match preview:

The finals series continues as the Adelaide 36ers look to take game 2 at home against Melbourne United. Join The Roar at 3pm AEDT for a live blog and scores.

Game 1 was everything we had hoped for plus more, with a seesawing back and forth game between. The opening half was a record-breaking half as for the first time in NBL history a finals series game had 100 points scored between both teams.

The final half of game 1 though showed a completely different Melbourne side who took over and eventually ran away with the game.

Adelaide made a few runs in patches but with Josh Boone dominating on the offensive glass they weren’t able to keep up.


With Adelaide hosting game 2 they will look to come out firing and make up for a lacklustre second half of game 1.

Mitch Creek and Nathan Sobey were good but they will need some more help from the likes of Josh Childress and Shannon Shorter if they are to get back into the series.

Josh Boone looks to be a major thorn for Adelaide and Chris Goulding was on fire from outside the arc in the 3rd quarter, these two things cannot happen if Adelaide are able to get the win.

Casper Ware was off for a large portion of the game with a leg injury but when he was able to come back on Melbourne looked to be a completely different team, and with his scoring abilities they took over and never let up.

Adelaide wants to even the series Melbourne wants to go up 2-0 and have a chance to close it out next week.

Can Adelaide respond in the right way or will Melbourne again dominant late in the game? Who knows right now but one thing is for sure game 2 will be another high scoring entertaining affair.

Adelaide won’t want to go down 2-0 and with the home crowd behind them they should be able to even the series up, however they need to get the defensive rebounds.
