NBL grand closing: Mitch Norton feeling good after impressive return for Perth Wildcats

Wildcats guard Mitch Norton says he’s pulled up well after making an impressive return from a calf injury in last night’s grand final opener.

Norton played an important cameo in Perth’s 81-71 win over Melbourne, chipping in with seven points in just over 10 minutes on court.

His contribution included a corner three-pointer that was a key part of the Wildcats’ third-quarter run that helped set up the victory.

Norton said he was pleased with how he had recovered in his first outing since January 25.

“I’m feeling really good,” Norton told The West Sport in a Facebook live interview this morning.

“There’s obviously a few bumps and bruises, but that’s what you get out of bed expecting after a grand final game.

“I’m very happy with how I pulled up and how I was able to contribute.”

Perth has little time to reflect on the win, with both sides flying out of WA this morning ahead of tomorrow’s Game 2 clash in Melbourne.

Norton said the Cats’ main focus would be staying healthy as they look to take a 2-0 stranglehold on the best-of-five series.

“It’s all about rest and looking after the body,” he said.

“That’s hard to do when you’ve got to fly four-and-a-bit hours, but I think we’re up for it.”
