  • ATT This story by Andrew K.

  • On just having a look at 36 is there Siri's of games?

  • It went like this.

  • Adelaide 1 24 defeated Perth 1 22 a two pointer at the Apollo Stadium on Friday night.

  • It was worth turning the tables 1 14 to 1 94 And of course, we're down to the game today.

  • The third and deciding game.

  • As I was saying, the 36 is have had to regroup and come back and play to other here in Perth.

  • Let's look at their preparation from Andrew K.

  • To say the Sixes were devastated after Friday night's result would be an understatement of mammoth proportion.

  • Gary Fox had little alternative but to call a training session yesterday afternoon a last ditch attempt to lift his side for today's decider.

  • But he Fox looked tired and drained.

  • His players were worse.

  • Almost all were carrying injuries and two were to visit doctors immediately after the session.

  • Fox knows if they recover, his big men can match it with Perth, but his guards must lift at least 100%.

  • Well, the fellas in Shubra Well, yeah, they had some shots and I think we're about eight for 32 from the back court.

  • When we need to improve on that area, there's no doubt about that.

  • And you know, our passing on receiving have got improve.

  • You can't come down the court and continue to turn the ball over and expect to be able to win the game.

  • The 36 has started Friday's game in excellent fashion that Fox says the turning point was obvious and came very early.

  • Well, the players were pumped up and ready to play B at the beginning of the game, and then that 32nd clock broke and there was about a five minute delay and person to come out of it.

  • It enabled them to steady relax a little bit, and they came back a little bit better than we did.

  • Immediately after Friday's game, the coach locked his players away.

  • It wouldn't take a genius to work out what he was telling them, talked about a lot of different things, some good, some bad, some loud, some quiet.

  • We just want to regroup and keep our heads high and make sure that the players know that they can dwell on this for 1/2 hour or so and then they better get their heads up and get ready to play.

  • The Adelaide will stop rank underdog today.

  • Perth plays like it did on Friday night.

  • It will match into the semifinals, ready to go the whole way.

  • But if the sixes recover and regroup in time, they are still capable of what would be a huge upset win.

  • Well, I'm still confident, but you can bet on intense because there's no tomorrow.

  • This is do or die.

  • Now we've got down to an elimination final game.

  • Well, Gary Fox is confident, and I'm sure the Wildcats a confident to of getting this 3rd 1 The deciding game.

  • Stay with us Mawr after this break, Welcome back, everyone to our coverage of this third and deciding game in the NBA elimination Siri's Finals playoff.

  • Well, to get some thoughts from last minute thoughts on the decided today, let's go down there to the Super Drone while he Forman talking to 36 is Coach Gary Fox.

  • Every one of the difficulties for the team on the road is the boredom of living out of a motel room.

  • Have the guys occupied?

  • Did time since Friday?

  • Not well.

  • We're staying at the premiere of your film, and they always treat us very well.

  • Well, I'm not going to ask you what what you talked about, because I know you won't tell me, but you got a good start on Friday night.

  • We do.

  • And that would obviously be an important part of your plan today.

  • We didn't see a lot of El Gran and Mike Mukai after halftime on Friday night.

  • What was the reason for that?

  • Well, we were trying to find the players were playing the best on the night and unfortunately, Alan Mike didn't have to have a very good game on Friday night and we were going with people we thought could win the game for us.

  • You got any injury problems?

  • Darryl Pierce has got a slightly fractured skull when he is connected with an elbow, and you know there's a few sore spots and things like that.

  • I'm sure the Wildcats have got the same, and you don't worry about those.
