The Thunder, though, have chance of reaching the playoffs stage if they can defeat the Stars in their final game. They have had a roller-coaster season but are in contention to reach the Playoffs, in fifth place on the Points Table currently with 12 from 13 matches. If other results go their way on Wednesday, Thunder can pip Brisbane Heat to make the Playoffs.
