SEM Phoenix Form
The Phoenix did not play a match in their last round, with their last game seeing them fall to a 111-106 defeat at the hands of Sydney. This loss saw their run of three wins in a row brought to an end as the playoffs loom.
Fortunately for the Phoenix, they have won their last two games in a row at home, hammering Perth 111-91 and beating the Cairns Taipans 85-80.
The home side will lean on their strong form against the Wildcats this season, with the Phoenix boasting a 2-1 record this campaign, with a place in the next round within their grasp.
Perth Wildcats Form
The Wildcats were able to secure a much-needed win in their last round as they defeated Sydney 96-84. This triumph saw them end a run of two defeats in a row to the Tasmania JackJumpers and the Cairns Taipans.
On the road, the Wildcats have struggled. They have lost their last four games in a row when on the road, and this is the worst time to be searching for form.
The bookies make the Wildcats the underdogs in this one, and it is not difficult to see why considering they lost 13 of their 28 league games.
