    Nathan Sobey sounded drugged in that half time interview - could barely understand what he was saying at times.

    Gotta love the NBL these days:

    - Making Adelaide switch their benches to the other side of TSA for no apparent reason
    - These ridiculous NBL team v NBA matches, that has all but compromised the opening round of the NBL season. What is the purpose of sending 3 teams halfway around the world during opening round for nothing matches.

    Homicide has been annoying to listen to

    No Goulding and that game nearly goes over 200 pts

    NBL is getting better and better every year.

    Ware and Prather are gonna be exciting to watch all year

    I think the NBL wanted the bench on the non camera side so the bench's reaction can be seen on TV, but the bench does get lost in the sponsors leaving the move redundant.

    Yeah you got the players celebrations just as well, if not better, when they were in their normal spot.

    You now also have the awkwardness of the 36ers bench being right next to the visitors race.

    Shorter needs to follow the other import out of the 36ers. He was putrid tonight.

    Quality of the coverage is better this year, apart from Homicide.

    Apart from some poor shot slection, I thought he was OK. Stats were OK.

    Always going to be tough folowing Randle I guess

    If the Wildcats don't threepeat this competition is a farce.

    I liked the look of Brisbane's top end players today but they have no bench and don't defend.

    Same as last year.

    Holt looked rusty on the 3 balls

    Not Kickert though.

    I had a laugh when one of the commentators said the pick and pop with him was unstoppable. Pretty sure his defender doesn't have to drop back and guard the penetration. Oh well, maybe Perth didn't bother with it because they were cruising to victory anyway.

    No idea why he's running around in Australia, Legit could be a good bench NBA guard

    Melbourne United lose to OKC by a point after having last posession. Two big defensive plays stifled United.
