Melbourne stood up and got a real team win led by Matt Dellavedova, beating Tasmania to force this series to a fifth and final game back at John Cain Arena. It is going to be a tough task, but I still hold strong with Tassie in this series and believe that with a bit of home pressure taken off them they will be able to do enough to sink Melbourne United at home.

There is nothing between these teams and it will simply be a shot or two that will win it for either team, which we have seen in the last 3 games of this series. Melbourne go in as $1.50 favourites but it will be Tasmania that will win their first ever NBL Championship.

Melbourne United Form & Team News


Matt Dellavedova was once again the star for Melbourne in their 88-86 victory over the JackJumpers, dropping the nail in the coffin of Tasmania on a solo drive to the basket that was unstoppable. 

Delli has controlled the ball all series for United, especially with Tasmania doubling up Chris Goulding and giving him no time to get into any sort of real rhythm. Dellavedova has distributed the ball and his guys all found their range in game 4 with five players on the united team scoring in the double-digits and 4 scoring over 15 points each.

Luke Travers was also big for Melbourne in Tasmania, recording a team-high 11 rebounds along with 17 points and 4 assists.
