Written by admin on 30/07/2019 Categories: 苏州美睫

Adelaide guard Gary Ervin could face a nervous wait to to see if he plays in the NBL semi-finals decider against Melbourne on Tuesday.


Minor premiers Perth secured their fourth grand final appearance in the past five seasons after completing a demolition of Wollongong on Sunday.

The Wildcats followed up last Friday’s 91-79 game one win at home, with a 80-61 victory in Wollongong.

Melbourne forced their series into a third game by levelling it with a 98-87 victory at Hisense Arena on Sunday.

Tigers guard Chris Goulding produced another stellar shooting effort , scoring 37, as Melbourne overcame a 13-point second quarter deficit.

He was on the receiving end late in the final quarter however, when Ervin was penalised for an unsportsmanlike foul on the Tigers guard that could draw attention from the NBL.

“I don’t know what it was, I just felt something in my man parts,” Goulding told the Ten network.

“I don’t want to comment too much on that. I’m sure they will have a look at it and it is whatever it is.”

An NBL spokesperson told AAP the footage would be reviewed by management either late on Sunday, or early on Monday.

He said if a charge was laid against Ervin, the hearing would be by teleconference on Monday.

Goulding nailed 12 of 21 field goal attempts including five from nine three-point shots.

Melbourne hit 12 three-pointers, but Adelaide connected on just five of 23 long bombs.

Scott Morrison scored 18 and Mark Worthington 13 for the Tigers.

Brendan Teys and Anthony Petrie each scored 17 for Adelaide.

In Wollongong, Perth trailed by five in the first and second quarters, but took control with a 14-0 run either side of halftime.

They turned a 33-31 deficit into a 45-33 advantage early in the second half and were up by as much as 28 late in the game.

Veteran forward Shawn Redhage led the way for Perth with 26 points, 15 in the second quarter, during which he nailed all four of his three-point attempts.

He made all six of his long bombs through the game and missed just two of 12 from all distances.

Redhage got good support from imports James Ennis and Jermaine Beal, who contributed 20 and 15 respectively.and between them combined for 22 of the Wildcats 26 third quarter points.

Tim Coenraad led the Hawks with 15, while prolific scoring import guard Rotnei Clarke was held to just 11 points.

He made just three of-12 field goal shots, as Perth’s suffocating defence kept the Hawks to a 32 per cent field goal success rate.
