Joking apart it does seem that in recent games there has been a definate shift in the way that Giants play. Previously there was the main threat from Clayton until he fouled out somewhere in the third/ fourth quarter. However with others in the squad stepping up it looks like they are a more rounded team, looks like they will be one of the teams around the 5-8 placings come end of season.

Now we've got a quick break in the willy jokes, this is the second in a run of really important Nix games. We play a number of games against teams around us in league positions, wins are definitely needed. Don't mind a boring poor nquslty game of basketball but need that win. Hopefully CJ is fully integrated into the team and he is given the ball in all the right places.
Great win for us that, kept going and Butler's 3....wow.
Was interesting to see the different approaches to coaching between Danny and Ben. Ben was shouting, pointing and generally being agressive at time outs etc, while Danny calmly gave his instructions. I know which works the best. I even saw Dijon at one point giving Ben a funny look after he had been screamed at.
Also, is CJ ever going to get fit. He is nowhere near the player he was last season and that's down to his fitness, he was panting and puffing after 3 minutes.
Great atmosphere too, and some good banter with some old phoenix friends including reallyoldfenixfan.

chickenbroncitis: a good result to beat the sharks. Hopefully Lions getting rid of that coach will give us a good play off push and put us in the mix with the Eagles and Riders where we should be

ballerman: And there's our problem. You really only care about your own club. The Leicester cheer leader only cares about the competition his team plays in.

Solly: "I thought it was a great day out, and it appeared like those around me (basketball fans new and old) did too. And for the haters, it’s back to proper basketball now… and everything that comes with it… smaller crowds, no television coverage etc. etc."
