36ers To Contain The Taipans

Sunday afternoon’s round 16 iiNet NBL Championship game will have Adelaide 36ers looking to stop Cairns in their tracks by applying good consistent defensive pressure throughout the game.

Head Coach Marty Clarke says that the team will have a similar game plan to the last time they met Cairns.

“I don’t think that we have to do too much different to our game from the last time we played Cairns,”

“We rebounded well and defended them quite well, we kept them to 72 points,”

“To win tomorrow, the team has to shoot a lot better than the 30% we shot last time.”

Marty Clarke says that it is important for the team to keep Alex Loughton and Jamar Wilson in check to minimise their impact on the game.

“We kept Loughton to one field basket last time and we need to continue to contain Jamar,”

“Andrew Warren will be watched, especially in transition, as he hurt us with two three pointers last game.”

Children and children at heart can get their faces painted in Adelaide 36ers colours from 3pm-5pm at FanZone, located in the South East corner of the stadium.

A team signing will happen directly after the game, with fans encouraged to bring along memorabilia for the team to sign.

Tip off for tomorrow afternoon is at 4pm and there are still tickets available from, with tickets starting from $20 for adults.
