Its scary to think that Ced could be a helluva lot better than what he is.

For all his basketball skill, his IQ isn't quite high.

Simple maths suggests he should put away the long bomb and take it to the rack, yet he persists with firing up 3 after 3 - with similar results.

It's a dumb play - he has got away with it for so long because he is Ced, but enough is enough.

I think in year's past, we had exceptional balance and a great range of pieces covering all facets of the game.

This year we appear to have a bit of deadweight - and the balance seems off.

Wesley, Bartlett, McDonald, 2nd Import spot are massive weaknesses at the moment.

The stats show he goes OK. But he misses a lot of rotations, gives up rebounds, overfouls etc.

This may however just be due to being a young professional and new to the NBL.

If anything was going to get Kirk Penney to turn back the clock to his prime it was playing against the Breakers, especially the disorganised version which turned out tonight.

International refs learned about Penney's leg kick-out a long time ago, but the pro that he is pulled it out on a new audience tonight! Those free throws got him rolling and he was unstoppable after that.

Let's hope he can produce that form a few more times this season.

Said on Twitter that I thought Cedric's body language was awful tonight.

Teams are giving him that three and he's taking it. Can only assume Vickerman has given him the green light? Otherwise why?!

With the Hawks missing their two main guards, you'd think Abercrombie and Jackson would've been able to restrict Penney, but no luck. He is as crafty as ever off the ball - still has all the tricks.

Yes, I thought the entire team's body language was rather poor.

The defining moment came at halftime when they showed the NZ change room and it looked as if someone had died. They looked terribly flat all night. Contrast that to their engagement and energy levels at Vector last week. There also appeared to be quite a bit of bickering tonight between players on missed rotations, fouls, turnovers.

It shows you Vukona's value as a leader and energy generator.

Is it possible for Webster to remain on his NBA salary and not make the 15 and simply play D-League i.e. is a situation possible whereby he earns coin to play for their D-League team.

Could it be possible that he stays there and plays D-League?

I am just thinking..he could put in a year of work training and developing in the NOP environment. He won't miss much back here..the Breakers will be here for him for a few more years yet. This is a one in a chance opp.

Would he have a D-League out clause? ;)

To be playing D-League whilst still being paid NBA money he would need to make an NBA team's roster and then they assign him to their D-League affiliate.

In his season with Toronto when healthy Jawai spent more time playing with their D-League team than the Raptors.

I thought Harvey was a star tonight, found him really entertaining .

Ogilvy has been my dream team captain for both rounds and boy was he efficient tonight.

Penney is just an out and out legend and his release is awe inspiring.

Coenraad and Foreman seemed quiet... That's a good sign that when Penney is in beast mode and Ogilvy is dominating inside that others aren't putting up silly shots... Let Penney go to work and AJ will clean up everything

Weeks deserves a gig, he is proof the league needs more teams.

I thought Charles was the Breakers most effective player tonight, he wasn't super in any way but atleast he looked like he was trying.

So hard to understand who the Breakers are and the play Perth on Friday and on current form the Wildcats could thump them but they certainly lift against their greatest rivals.

Loved the Hawk's performance last night in this game, always thought they were going to turn it around for a win soon and under Bevo this team especially when it is fully fit will be hard to beat.

Breakers will still be dangerous at home this season, but their dominance and away game record seems it will fade away with their confidence.

Penney was a delight to watch and Ogilvy had the right mind set, showed what he could do under the right system.

I have always subscribed to a theory that great guards don't always make great coaches, because they just don't understand how to work a big player into a game and ignore them too much, but this is a generalisation only...

The Breakers have a big guy (Tai) in the post who was almost unstoppable when they fed him last night, maybe they should have gone to him more often?

Wesley, Bartlett, McDonald, 2nd Import spot are massive weaknesses at the moment.

Charles Jackson, who is pretty raw, played ok last night, as did tai. I agree there is a step up required, Charles losses his man on rotations and generally has low ball iq. But is a good athlete and attitude.

Bartlett has been a deadset rockstar- so don't agree at all there. He's not even the 10th guy on the roster for crying out loud.

McDonald was always a shocking recruit. Especially with others available when he was recruited. Vickerman should have been fired for even suggesting this. Didn't you stick up for McDonald when he was recruited? If I remember rightly... Please confirm or otherwise...

The guy the breakers will be disappointed in is Abercrombie. He is a human disappearing act. Great athlete, great shot, best defender apparently. No doubt on big salary - but plays at a frustrating low level. The most annoying player in basketball. Fundamentals lacking. For crying out loud do t fake a player, get him in the air, and then step aside. Draw the foul! Go to the line. Harden up.

You have got to ask where is the money being spent with Webster out. Cedric Jackson - who had a shocker last night, and Abercrombie I would suggest.

Cedric got a triple double last week. So he's up there. But agree he shots the 3 ball far too much. His shooting mechanics will mean hel never have a great shot, he should be told to stop putting it up
