Sixers v Breakers Dec 30
The Breakers make a quick post Christmas trip to Adelaide to size up against the Sixers. Both teams are in the hunt for finals spots and games like these count.
The Long and the short of it is that New Zealand have been punching below their weight in the games that matter. Today, the matchups might prove a bit of a post Christmas hangover for Joey if he hasn't done his homework.
Shawn Long has shown glimpses of brilliance that should make any opposition coach reach for the clipboard to draw up a new play. The guy is basically a panther in the key pouncing on any mistake and swatting balls like pesky flies. If DJ thinks he can just tuck and re-tuck his pants this game, he has something else coming.
Tai Wesley has been brilliant this season, but the guy to watch this game is Corey Webster. Webster is the danger guy most likely to, like an Aztec priest on the pyramid, rip out the beating heart of the Sixers and then holding it up to the adorning crowd. That's not even considering Abba, who will be holding down the Sixers.
The game should be a high scoring entertaining game with another 200 points scored. Plenty of reasons why the Breakers should win, but the recent form of the Sixers has been better and should see them get this one.
