The Adelaide 36ers will be doing their highly choreographed victory dance today, after managing to smash Melbourne United 110-95 in the second round of the NBL Grand Final Series.

A strong first half saw the 36ers peaking the scoreboards by mid match, a lead they managed to carry for the rest of the game despite United’s aggressive attempts at defense.

Adelaide’s Majok Deng topped the scoreboard with a match high 18 points, while Mitch Creek and Ramone Moore both took 17 for the home-side, helping them run away the 110-95 win.

36ers Coach Joey Wright was quick to praise Deng’s scoring prowess in a post-match conference.

“I just say this over and over and over, Majok is a scoring machine, if he is on the court… and gets minutes, he just finds a way.”

By match end, seven 36ers finished up with double figure scores, with Josh Chidlress managing 13 points and eight rebounds before he tapped out with a shoulder injury in the final stretch of the game.

It’s still early days, but the 15-point victory may just be the confidence boost the lads need heading into game three this Friday in Melbourne.
