Gaze laments tactics as Bogut's Kings flounder


//

Sydney Kings coach Andrew Gaze has vowed to alter the team's tactics after the Kings fell to their second defeat despite an excellent performance from Andrew Bogut.

The Adelaide 36ers survived a third-quarter masterclass from Bogut to notch a 106-101 win over the Kings on Friday night.

Speaking after the game, Gaze admitted that the team's tactics had gotten Bogut out of his rhythm.

"Slowly but surely he's getting better," Gaze told reporters.

"To their credit they did some stuff to take him out of his comfort zone, but we did some stuff to take him out of his comfort zone.

"We've got to find a way to get him more involved and exploit his skills."

Captain Daniel Johnson had 20 points and nine rebounds while reserves Adris Deleon (21 points, six assists) and Brendan Teys (14 points), playing his 150th game for the club, combined for 10-of-11 three-pointers at Titanium Security Arena.

Johnson had the early edge against Bogut (16 points, 11 boards, three blocks) as the Sixers held sway 29-26 at the end of the opening term which finished with Jerome Randle drilling a buzzer-beating trey.

Bogut, who fouled out in last week's season opener against Adelaide, racked up three fouls in the space of 57 seconds early in the second and spent the rest of the half on the bench.

Brad Newley (23 points) did his best to single-handedly keep the Kings alive but it was the 36ers, piloted by Deleon, who led 62-52 at half-time.

Bogut shook off his early foul woes and returned to the fray after the break and completely changed the temperature of the contest at both ends.

With a combination of rebounds, dunks, hooks, slick passes and strong interior defence, the seven-footer showed why he played 695 NBA games to help Sydney briefly steal the lead.

The Sixers held a narrow 82-80 three-quarter-time edge and the fourth period was largely basket-for-basket before Deleon completed a stunning four-point play which he followed with a wild celebration.

Valiantly, Sydney kept coming but Johnson was ice cool from the free throw line when it mattered to steer Adelaide to their 11th straight victory over the Kings.
