Recap

Sydney Kings will play their first friendly match under the belt of new coach Mahmoud Abdelfattah, who changed the coaching staff, adding two-time NBL champion Fleur McIntyre as a lead assistant, while Daniel Kickert has been promoted to second assistant. All of them are top quality coaches with big experience, where the main task will be to defend the NBL title. The squad is well balanced with extraordinary players like Denzel, Jonah, Jaylen Adams, captain Bruce, and Jordan Hunter.

South East Melbourne Phoenix have 3 friendly defeats in a row against NBL teams Melbourne United, Tasmania JackJumpers, and Adelaide. They will be without two star players Mitchell Creek (23.4 points, 7 rebounds, 2.9 assists), Alan Williams (17.4 points, 10.2 rebounds, 1.9 assists), new additions Craig Moller, Gorjok Gak, while Matt Kenyon is doubtful. Today, several development players will have the chance to shine.

I think that Sydney Kings is a much better team at the moment and should easily cover this line.
