Anyone know what capacity with covid restrictions is? Crowd has looked very small for a home game based on the couple of crowd shots I've seen
Should be a little over 5k assuming its allowed to be 50% full like Rod Laver Arena is for the tennis next door

Geez... we were strictly average today I thought, but United just plain flat.
Can always count on the Cats to at least play hard, and that was enough.

Fair effort by the Phoenix to turn that around after the horror 1st quarter they had

Never in doubt, they've come back from a heavy early-on deficit last few games I think.. Top 4 team now, looking forward to seeing how they go with Broekhoff

Why do nbl teams not foul in the last minute when they’re more than 3 down? The number of games that just drain out when quick fouls and missed free throws could put them back in the balance is mind-blowing.

Just another reminder of how this is not genuine professional sport - it’s elevated amateur at best.

Scotty Hopson just had the worst game I've ever seen from a basketball player. Bricking shots, bricking free-throws, passes to no one, unable to dribble, horrendous game awareness by bricking another shot just inside the 3-point line in the final minute with over half the shot clock remaining.

Because the rules are different from the NBA.

There’s no personal take fouls, if your play is not on the ball, it’ll be called unsportsmanlike which is free throws and possession.

There’s also no automatic bonus if more than one foul occurs in the last two minutes.

Teams have less timeouts to use.

It’s pretty easy to look things up, even an “amateur” can do it

“ We will have a capacity of 5,000 fans at John Cain Arena and 2,600 fans at the State Basketball Centre but we are planning to proceed with all games as scheduled and the health and safety of players, coaches, officials and fans will remain our number one priority with strict COVID safe protocols in place.”


But it’s hard to commit to these games given the governments love of a last minute lockdown
