1 min read

Just days after declaring for this year’s NBA Draft, Josh Giddey has again showcased why he is projected to be a first-round selection as he recorded another triple-double to lead the Adelaide 36ers to a comprehensive 101-79 win over the Brisbane Bullets.

Giddey became the first Australian in NBL history to record back-to-back triple-doubles with his 15 points, 13 assists, and 11 rebounds.

The NBL Next Star was given a tremendous ovation from the Adelaide Entertainment Centre crowd of 6138 who again delighted in Giddey’s performance.

Daniel Johnson provided strong support with 26 points in his 350th NBL game while Keanu Pinder added 19 points and seven rebounds off the bench for the Sixers.

The loss keeps Brisbane on the outside of the finals picture with 11 games to play. Nathan Sobey led the way for the visitors with 20 points.
