Breakers v United Nov 7
Round sux kicks off across the dutch today when the mighty Breakers take on United.
Last round the Breakers hosted the Pussycats in Invercargill and let them into the game in the 3rd quarter to complete their L W L W L pattern. Does that mean they are due a W this game?
The United boys have a quick turnaround after toppling the mighty Bogieman and his band of merry men in a high scoring game. Ware leading all scorers with 34, but Long winning the boards. All Melbourne starters scored double figures with plenty of game time spread between them and 6th man Ili.
They will certainly need their organic decaf soy lattes tonight. Last time these teams met in Melbourne, United won 104 to 98. Trimble, Long and Goulding all scored over 20, with Ashley, Webster and Hopson top scoring for the visitors. It's a different ball game in Auckland though and with Hopson out and Rice jnr in, will that be enough to squeeze the latte sippers?
The Breakers have been competitive every game this year but have been challenged with injuries to key players. They need someone to lift tonight if they are to get across the line. Maybe bring in Jacinta for a stirring speech at half time. I think United's star is starting to shine.
