After dropping their last two games, the JackJumpers will be be eager to atone for the past against the Brisbane Bullets on Saturday, November 4, with tip off at 5.30pm. JackJumpers vice-captain Jack McVeigh was looking forward to the challenge of turning the tables against the Bullets, who will be boosted by the return of Aaron Baynes. "It's always fun getting to play a team back-to-back when they've just beaten you, so to get to play in front of Launnie is going to be fun and we are all excited for it," McVeigh said. "It's always hard when someone comes back, so that's always something you've got to play with because of different rotations and roles. "They're playing some really good basketball right now so it's going to be a great game and I know the crowd is going to be there loud giving us that energy we need." The 27-year-old said his side has been focused heavily on improving their defensive game. ALSO IN SPORT "That's what we've been focused on, the controllable actions in which we can improve upon. What can we do better, that one percent of really picking that defensive end up, that's what we want to be known by," he said. "We need to clean up the defensive end and it will get us over that tiny little hump. At four and four we're not satisfied, everyone wants to be first and that's what we are working towards." While the JackJumpers have only won just the one game from four matches at the Silverdome, McVeigh wasn't fazed. "That's just how the game goes, we don't look too much into it. You can be one and three anywhere but we are excited to get back up there and play in front of the fans," he said.
