Prewster scores 40 points in 21 minutes

The Wellington Saints marched into the NBL playoffs in record-breaking form, thrashing the Bay Hawks 120-72 to set the largest win in franchise history.

The 48 point mauling could have been even greater, with the lead at 62 with eight minutes remaining - sparking thoughts that the seemingly unbreakable 147-77 victory by the 2003 Waikato Titans over the Taranaki Mountain Airs could finally be surpassed.

At the heart of the mauling was a performance for the ages from Saints guard Dion Prewster, who had 40 points off the bench in just 21 minutes of action.

Prewster set a career high and an NBL season high, channeling his inner Klay Thompson while hitting eight threes and going 13-18 from the field.

Prewster has come along in leaps and bounds in the last year, the Breakers should def be looking at signing him.

He missed a mind boggling amount of easy shots around the basket for the Kings last year, but it always looked entirely like a confidence thing. If he can be even half as useful offensively as he is defensively in the NBL, he's a quality pickup for anybody.
