Crocs v Breakers Recap
Crocs slip to 0-3, despite some on-court improvement.
They are still only playing at a small percentage of what they are capable of, but by the time they figure it out will it be too late?
Peter Crawford had another game to forget, while the Crocs were in control numerous times during the game, but then regressed to their "pass it around the perimeter two meters out from the three point line until you pass it out of bounds or the shot clock expires" offensive scheme. Gary Ervin had a few key turnovers and a brain fart technical foul, but otherwise had a good game.
Mika Vukona willed his team to victory and was on every loose ball. Can't say enough about his performance.
Officiating was pretty bad again, going both ways. It seemed like the bad calls would go one team's way for a five minute stretch, and then all go the other team's way for five minutes, and back again, and so on, and so on...
Was interesting that it was a game of two halves to a tee: Townsville controlled the first half, with a late Breakers run to close the half, while NZ controlled the second half, with a late Crocs run to close the game.
