Adelaide 36ers guard Jason Cadee said his team has been on the improve in recent weeks, winning three of their last four games.
The 36ers travel to Perth this weekend to play the struggling Wildcats, but Cadee isn’t prepared to take them lightly.
“Perth, they’re a tough line-up. Any team that has a Bryce Cotton, Keanu Pinder and co is something you’ve got to worry about,” he said.
“For us, the thing we’ve really focused on since the season started has been ourselves.
“We go to Perth knowing how tough they are at home, but also worrying about what we need to do to win.
“This league, you can’t be bad on any night, you can’t have nights off.
“You’ve seen in results, we’ve started to find a rhythm as a group, but you have to be able to keep doing that in night in, night out to get wins.”
Adelaide started 0-4, before wins over Illawarra, Perth and New Zealand turned it into a workable 3-5.
“We’ve been getting better since the pre-season,” Cadee said.
“It didn’t lead to wins straight away, but we stuck with the processes knowing a win would come and we’ve been able to win three of our last four.
“It was exciting [to beat New Zealand], I think for a few of us it had been a while since we’d won in New Zealand, it’s a tough place to win with travel and how well they play at home.
“It took all of 36 minutes to get a lead and from there we didn’t look back.”
