R2. Breakers Vs Sixers. Vector Arena
Adelaide head to Auckland to face the Breakers after going 1/1 in R1. whilst New Zealand grabbed a victory in Perth to start their season.
Tom Abercrombie is recovering from a Sports Hernia operation but trained today and is hoping to hit the floor on Friday against the Sixers depending obviously on how he goes this week at training. Unsure of weather he'll start or play off the bench behind TeRangi.
Cory Webster who played no part in the second half of the win over the Wildcats after jarring his back and leaving the court. He trained today and will also play on Friday barring any deterioration during the week. Expected to start.
Alex Pledger is expected to play limited minutes on Friday as the medical & coaching staff manage his foot injury and like the others he trained today without issue. Will play off the bench behind Ibekwe.
New Zealand will have to be on their toes for Adelaide but if they play how they did against the Wildcats defensively and continue to rebound how they did, they should get the win at home.
