The Tamworth Thunderbolts are looking forward to getting back on their home court after picking up two good wins on the road.
Backing up their six point win over the Newcastle Hunters last week, the Thunderbolts accounted for the Springwood Scorchers 99-55 in Sydney on Saturday night.
"It ended up a comfortable win but our first half was probably disappointing on the offensive end," coach John Ireland said.
"I thought defensively we were pretty solid to hold them to 26 in the first half but we were only able to score 40 ourselves."
It just "didn't click".
"We didn't make shots and our offensive transition wasn't as fluent as I'd like it to be," he said.
The second half they executed a lot better and knocked down some shots.
Quayshun Hawkins led the second half surge. He scored probably 18 of his 25 points in the second half, Ireland said and made a lot of mid-range shots.
Riley Murphy also had a big game and was the second-top scorer with 16 points.
"Riley was outstanding. He played with a really high tempo, really first quick step," Ireland said.
"They had a lot of trouble containing him."
It was though again a really good spread of points, and "a good allround team win".
The Thunderbolts now have three home games in a row starting with arch-rivals Central Coast on Saturday night.
Ireland said it was good to give a few of the younger players a good run on Saturday night. They were without David Bourke, Josh Cohen and Brock McMahon.
Scott McGann is also set to return from the states in a couple of weeks.
"It probably makes for a few headaches for me," Ireland said.
"Once Scott returns we'll have 16 guys in the squad that on their day are just as good as any one in the side."
