Last Update for the Year!

Wednesday 31/12/14

The Adelaide Strikers wound up their 2014 with a real bang in the Big Bash overnight crushing the Hobart Hurricanes in an 8 wicket victory with 33 balls remaining in the chase. The Wild Thing Shaun Tait starred with the ball taking an impressive 3/22 from his 4 overs and really winding back the clock with a ferocious 147kph yorker to end Darren Sammys innings before it even began. With the bat Tim Ludeman continued his love affair with Adelaide Oval this season smashing a quick-fire 54 from just 33 deliveries which included 4 fours and 4 sixes, he was ably supported by Jono Deans 54 not out which featured an Adelaide Strikers record of 6 sixes and a unique highlight of a broken bat as he tried to flay a ball through the covers.

In an NBA roundup the Cavaliers continued their recent slide following the loss of Centre Anderson Varajeo for the season with an Achilles tendon injury falling to the Atlanta Hawks 109-101 away from home. The Portland Trailblazers were able to outlast the Toronto Raptors in a see-sawing affair the saw the game taken into overtime before Portland ultimately prevailed 102-97 at home. Golden State continued to maintain its lead atop the Western Conference ladder handing out a 40 point drubbing to the ever lowly Philadelphia 76ers with a final score of 126-86, the ideal way for the Warriors to kick off their 6 game home stretch.

Happy New Year Readers!
