Melbourne United will play host again to the Perth Wildcats for the fourth game of the NBL Grand Final Series at Melbourne Arena, Melbourne. Join The Roar for live scores and a blog from 2:20pm AEDT.
The Wildcats are currently 2-1 up in the series after a third game win at home 96-67.
If there is one thing that was noticeable from Game 3 of this series, is that Terrico White went absolutely ballistic.
He scored almost a third of the Wildcats points, 31 of them with a two-point average of 50 per cent and a three-point average of 70 per cent. He also got seven rebounds.
So keeping Terrico quiet could make a massive difference to the final score of this match.
Another interesting stat from game 3 is that Melbourne’s three-point percentage was at only 14 while Perth’s was at 48.
I don’t expect many changes to either side for the match.
This series has been all home team so far and sadly it will probably stay that way. The crowds are giving the home team such a push in this series.
