R5 Sixers Vs Breakers NSEC 5/11/15
The Adelaide 36ers (3/3) come to Auckland to face the NZ Breakers (3/3) at the North Shore Events Centre.
Back in Round 1 Adelaide wasted NZ 90-71 but they were without Corey Webster, Tom Abercrombie & Alex Pledger. Adelaide also didn't have their new Import Guard Jerome Randle who despite being a midget looks like he can ball.
Both teams are without injury so this one should be a cracker. Quick import guards, athletic small forwards, gritty power forwards and legit big men who can get up and down the floor.
Adelaide will need to contain the Breaker backcourt duo of Corey Webster and Cedric Jackson and repeat their thrashing on the rebound count that they dished out in round 1 to win.
NZ will need to control the tempo and keep the shackles on Daniel Johnson and Jerome Randle and win the rebound count. They'll also need Charles Jackson and Alex Pledger to offer some rim protection that was sorely missed in the Round 1 game.
I'm a one eyed Kiwi so it's won't be a surprise which side I'm picking to win.
