The Sydney Kings are flying high at the moment, sitting on top of the table with a 16-5 record and riding a five-game win streak. The Hoops Capital side will look to extend both this Sunday when they take on NSW rivals Illawarra in the fourth and final Adrian Hurley Cup game of NBL23.

The Sydney Kings are flying high at the moment, sitting on top of the table with a 16-5 record and riding a five-game win streak.

The Hoops Capital side will look to extend both this Sunday when they take on NSW rivals Illawarra in the fourth and final Adrian Hurley Cup game of NBL23.

"One of our main focuses against Illawarra is how we make life difficult for Tyler Harvey and Sam Froling," said Glover, who was with the Hawks from 2016-2020.

"We know a lot goes through those two guys.

"It’s not just whoever is guarding them at the time, it takes all five on the court to help and be ready to rotate and rebound and then push the ball.

"If we do that we will take care of business."

A key cog to this impressive stretch by Chase Buford's side is their offensive prowess, averaging 108 points per game, including Wednesday's 49-point thumping of Brisbane - well up on their season average of 95.7 points per game (which is five more than their closest rivals South East Melbourne).

"A big part of that [run] is our defence which leads to our offence," the Kings wing said.

"When we get stops, we love to push the ball in transition and play fast.

"We also have had a mindset of playing for the full 40 minutes and making sure we don’t take our foot off the gas and let teams get back in the game.
"Also, we have the willingness to go from a good shot to a great shot.

"All in all, Chase's system is really fun to play in."

Even more pleasing for Glover is the fact he's been able to take the court consistently during this stretch, after an injury-plagued start to the campaign.

"I'm feeling good but just trying to do my job for the team in whatever way it will be on the night," the 24-year-old said.

"I love playing with this group - any of us can go off on any given night and we all enjoy everyone’s success."

Tickets to Sunday's Adrian Hurley Cup fixture, which will be part of the Hoops Capital double-header featuring the Flames WNBL showdown with Townsville, are still available here.
