Possibly the most exciting game of the Australian National Basketball League 2021 is in store for fans as the top two teams of the tournament take on each other, on Wednesday. Currently at the top of the NBL 2021 points table with 21 wins and 5 losses, the Melbourne United side have their sights firmly set on the trophy this season. Having won their last 11 games in a row, the team is also on a record run that they will hope to continue all the way into the finals. Their hopes will be pinned on Chris Goulding, who currently leads the league in three points made per match.
Meanwhile, in second place on the Australian National Basketball League 2021 points table, the Perth Wildcats will be coming into this match off of a small spate of losses against the New Zealand Breakers. Looking to end the regular season atop the table, the Wildcats will have to defeat Melbourne to improve their 18-7 record to something close enough to have a genuine shot at beating them to the top. With two more matches lined up against the side, the Wildcats will also want to be the ones to break Melbourne's dominant winning streak.
Perth Wildcats will be missing Majok Majok for the entirety of the season owing to an Achilles injury while Melbourne United will be without Jack White for all of 2021 for the same reason. All others players on the teams will be fit for this epic clash.
Melbourne United: Chris Goulding, Mitch McCarron, Jo Lual-Acuil, Mason Peatling, Sam McDaniel
Perth Wildcats: Bryce Cotton, John Mooney, Todd Blanchfield, Mitch Norton, Jarred Bairstow
Point Guards: Bryce Cotton (VC), Chris Goulding
Shooting Guards: Mitch Norton, Mitch McCarron
Small Forwards: Todd Blanchfield, Scotty Hopson
Power Forwards: Mason Peatling (C)
