Wildcats to rebound on the road: Chance

Perth Wildcats assistant coach Jacob Chance anticipates a quick bounce back to form for the club, with a stern road test awaiting them in round 13.

The reigning champions were outplayed from tip-off to the final buzzer against Melbourne United on Saturday, defeated 87-74 at Perth Arena.

"It was really disappointing." Chance told Sports Drive on Monday.

" We didn't do the simple things well, we didn't keep the ball in front of us which was our big focus of the week, Melo Trimble and Shawn Long had their way with us."

"We were disappointed, but another chance to learn and get back on the horse this week in Sydney."

The Wildcats play Sydney at Qudos Bank Arena on Saturday, before backing up to play New Year's Day in Adelaide against the 36ers Wednesday week.

Chance said his team would embrace the challenge of two road games in less than a week.

"We'll come home for a bit before Adelaide, you break the season in to blocks. We love coming up against these teams, they always give 100% and they're a real test."

Perth remain in second spot on the table after 19 matches, their next two opponents occupying top spot (Sydney) and fifth place (Adelaide) respectively.
