LAST MEETING

These teams will meet three times this season, and the Taipans have taken out the first two. Despite trailing at the main break in both games, the Taipans have managed to find momentum down the stretch. Most recently, it was a 91-82 victory in Hobart. A win tonight will be a Cairns sweep for the series!

LINE-UP

With the long-awaited return of Keanu Pinder, both sides will have their full rosters available.

LOOK FOR

The return of the Matrix. It was widely speculated that the Taipans would not win a game without their MVP candidate, but six straight wins later KP will be keen to remind everyone what they’ve missing.

Pinder also had his season-high 34 points against the JackJumpers, back in Round 11.

LATEST WORDS

We’re feeling good, the energy is great, but we know this game is important. We’re trying to finish the season strong going into play-offs. The JackJumpers are a great team, so we have to be ready to go and be locked into the scout. They’re a team that never gives up so we have to be ready to play a 40-minute game,” – Majok Deng

“We’re just playing game-by-game. Obviously, we’re starting to unlock our offence, we’re playing well together, but it’s our defence that’s been getting it done. We’re just harping on those things and being great at what we’re good at,” – assistant coach Kerry Williams
