When the teams last met, Giants dominated the first three quarters before Fever mounted a comeback, however, Giants early lead saw them take the win and the title of minor premiers.

However, finals is a different type of game.

“A lot of people say it's (finals) just like any other game, but it's not like any other game," said Giants Head Coach Julie Fitzgerald. 

"The intensity of finals and the value of finals is so much greater, that your approach has to be a little bit different.
“There's tweaks you want to make to your game, but at this point of the season it's really just keeping things ticking over, making sure that they're fresh, that we've really done our homework and know what to expect in the game coming and that we're well prepared for it,” she said.

It is the first time the Fever have made a finals series of a national league competition since the ANZ Championships in 2015 where they lost the elimination final to runners-up NSW Swifts.

Despite their dominance over Fever last Saturday, Giants understand that this won’t be an easy semi-final but are looking to make their second grand final in a row.

Giants and Fever will take to the court on Saturday on 3pm which will be broadcast live on Channel 9.
