Illawarra @ New Zealand, 17 JAN

Illawarra did it easily earlier in the week. They seem to have the Breakers number. A repeat dose here?

Can only hope so, thats where my money is. They were brutal last game, Breakers couldnt control the tempo at all, cant see how that gets rectified that quickly. Unless non of the Hawks guns are firing, Hawks easily again.

New Zealand have championship pedigree and I think they show it tonight. They can't just let a team run all over from for a 4-0 series domination if they're serious about contending.

As a Sixers fan, I'm hoping Illawarra whip some butt today.

I am thinking that the Breakers won't go down and die that easily. They are hurting and there are rumours of team chemistry being bad, but they are at home and they know that Adelaide is right behind them, like an Adelaide driver tailgating along South Rd in peak hour traffic. One mistake, and the Breakers will cope it.

That'll make this game a delicious game to watch.

The refs in Auckland let a lot of stuff go, so I'm expecting a lot of argy-bargy and a bit of lip on the court. There's certainly a lot of jibes available on offer and with two former (unwanted) Breakers (Forman and Penney) on the pine, there's an opportunity to rub it in.

The Breakers won't want to be embarrassed on their own court and so if Illawarra want to put a stake in there hearts, they better drive in it hard.

I'm tipping this to be closer than most Poindexters think. Breakers should lead this game at times, but the more disciplined Hawks will get this in the end.

"Great game. Lucky the Breakers didn't score on that last possession since it looked like it should have been a Hawks ball."

It was a foul on Lisch, should have been two FTs for Webster. NZ didn't deserve to win this though, despite their awesome D, so many dumb plays and brain fades.

Also the fact they stopped running offence and just went to on-balls and isos when the Hawks clearly couldn't guard them when they got into early offence. Breakers with 64pts in 40mins after 1/4 time.

On the other hand great toughness from the Hawks, Lisch was amazing but their role players did a super job down the stretch.

I put the loss down to Vukona's choke at the free throw line and Vickerman not instructing them to foul when up 3 in regulation. Out Coached and out played.

Class display from Lisch and Ellis came up big down the stretch in the absence of Penney.

On the bright side NZ were competitive but that didn't stop the season sweep or the slide out of the 4.

Don't forget Abercrombie's choke, missed a lay-up on a soft foul, then missed both FTs, then missed a wide-open three. Any of those would have sealed the deal.

Worst of all was not fouling when three up with next to nothing on the clock though.
