Double-Header Preview: Adelaide & Melbourne

December 5, 2019 | Perth Lynx news

The Perth Lynx look to bounce back from a tough home loss when they hit the road for a crucial double-header this weekend.

Perth expect to be bolstered by the return of Imani McGee-Stafford, who has been sidelined with an ankle injury since Round Two.

The first test will be against the Adelaide Lightning at Titanium Security Arena.

It’s the Lynx first trip to South Australia this season, but their second time meeting the Lightning.

Last time, the Lynx lost 86-90 in overtime, despite a 22-point 15-assist night from Katie Ebzery.

Perth were crushed on the glass in their first game without McGee-Stafford.

Tip-off is at 4.30pm Perth time and you can stream it live for the WNBL website.

Following Friday night’s game the team head to Melbourne for another huge challenge against the seven and two Boomers.

Lindsay Allen leads the Boomers scoring with 17.6 per game, while Opal Cayla George averages 13.8 plus 9.8 rebounds per game.

Melbourne are on a three-game win-streak.

Tip-off on Sunday is at 2pm and you can watch it live on Fox Sports.
