Perth did exactly what they needed to do to get the win against Tasmania as they watched the JackJumpers key shooters miss from the field all night long. With Tassie playing this game at MyState Bank Arena I would presume that both Milton Doyle and Jordan Crawford will find their range on their home court which will give them the advantage. 

Tasmania have also won their last 3 games against Perth in Hobart, including an 86-72 win on February 17 and both games on the island last season. 

Bryce Cotton also had an uncharacteristic night from the field in Perth in game one, but has never really been a factor in the Wildcats games in Tasmania. Cotton missed the game this season and scored just 17 points and 14 points in the two appearances in NBL23.

I give the JackJumpers the edge at home in this game and will always back their defence to keep this game under the expected total from the bookies.

Perth Wildcats Form & Team News

The Perth Wildcats played game one of this series to perfection taking their chances from the deep in the unlikely hands of Keanu Pinder who changed the match for the Wildcats. The Arizona import was almost flawless from the three point line going 5-7 and shifting the momentum into Perth’s favour in the second half, with his performance earning him the Man of the Match. 

Pinder finished the match with a game-high 25 points and 7 rebounds, as NBL MVP Bryce cotton had an off night shooting 3 of 12 from the field and finish the game on 15 after going 9-10 from the free throw line.

Tasmania JackJumpers Form & Team News

Despite the 8-point loss, it was a real decent performance from Tasmania who had their own opportunities to win game one, but had no answer for Pinder’s accuracy from outside. 

Jack McVeigh scored a team-high 17 points but was restricted through the middle of the game getting into some early foul trouble which aided in Perth containing the forwardäs productivity. 

Jamal Crawford (7-18) and Milton Doyle (4-16) had a really off night shooting the ball with Craford nailing just 38 percent and Doyle 25 percent from the field.
