R12: Kings v Breakers
What a feast of sport there is on Boxing Day. Cricket, Open Water Yachting, even the contact sport of post Christmas sales - they all pale into significance when it comes to NBL action and tonight the Violet Crumbles host those Breakers in what should be more exciting than the kids v parents backyard cricket game, and louder than your Uncle's Hawaiian shirt on Christmas Day.
The Kings played valiantly without Childress last game and looked for a hero to step up. That man was Jason "Gun Holsters" Cadee. It didn't quite get them over the line in that OT game, but with Childress still 50/50 today, someone will need to take on Jackson and that will be a true test for JC tonight.
The Breakers had a shocker against Cairns last game not getting a single 3 (0/17). Corey Webster taking a trip back to U14 shooting 1/13 and Rhys Carter 0/5. I expect a dose of Christmas pudding should give them the strength to bag a few more than that tonight.
The Breakers are on top for a reason and when it comes to beating Aussies at sport, it's a national passion. Not even an underarm ball can stop our Kiwi Kousins today who should take advantage of a Childressless Kings.
