The Good 36ers (Preview: 36ers v Kings 2/12/12)
After their worst loss of the year to date against Melbourne, Adelaide returned home two days later and fought tooth and nail to overcome the Wildcats. They were keen to atone for what they'd served up two night before and this game presents exactly the same opportunity. Unlike last time though, they face an opponent who also suffered a rough loss two nights ago. Adelaide is backing up and had to fly from FNQ back to Adelaide while Sydney had to make the trek west and then get on another three hour flight to come to Adelaide. So who wins?
Adelaide beat Sydney a few rounds back on their home court and match up well against the Kings. They managed then to contain the Kings two most dangerous players in Henry and Madgen and there's no reason they can't do so again. Adelaide got big games out of Schenscher, Weigh and Cadee last time while DJ and Gibson were relatively quiet. The game also marked CJ's coming-to-life, with 9 points in just over 5 minutes.

All things considered I expect Adelaide to bounce back and make amends for their setback Friday
Prediction: Adelaide by 15
