No team in NBL history has ever lost a playoff game by as many as the Kings did tonight and recovered to win the series.

The knock on them all season Trimble poor decision making at the point and both he and Long pad their numbers at the expense of the team.

I would expect a very different team at Melbourne next season.

A big coup for the 36ers signing 17 year old Josh Giddey as a Next Stars player for next season. The 6'8" PG is considered a possible first-round pick in the 2021 NBA Draft and is the son of former Melbourne Tigers veteran Warwick Giddey.

I would be expecting the announcement of Andrew Gaze as the new coach.

The Cairns Taipans have announced the signing of 17 year old Mojave King as their Next Stars signing for next season. The 6'5" PG like Giddey is viewed as a possible first round pick in the 2021 NBA Draft.
