Breakers to return home


It has been an agonising 426 days (and counting) since we last played here at home, but the wait is over Breaker Nation! The Sky Sport Breakers will be back in NZ in May, with our first home game planned for Thursday 20 May against the Sydney Kings. Mark it in your diaries now.

Looks like they will need to do another slight rework to this. If my math is right Brisbane play one more game than everyone else and Cairns play 1 less

Can you also please do the maths on the number of away games United will have played outside of Victoria at seasons end.

Apparently NZ committed to 6 games in Tasmania which will be honored and their remaining 7 home games will be in NZ from what I understand.

Anyone know the ballpark figures for courtside for breakers in nz? Will probably only get to go to one match this year due to work etc so want to go courtside.

Sure... Melbourne will have played 11 games interstate by seasons end...
ADE x 1, BRI x 2, CRN x 2, ILW x 2, PER x 2, SYD x 2

They would have also played 25 games in Victoria with the majority in Melbourne.

Seems Fair

That's 23 games on their home court and 2 more in Bendigo

Looking at the breakers home schedule for the last 7 games of the season... what a surprise, Melbourne and Perth don't have to travel to NZ.

Breakers schedule for the rest of the season is brutal. So many games in such a short time.

Perth not traveling to NZ makes sense... Had the most miles of nearly anyone in the League bar maybe NZB.

But absolutely no excuse that MEL don't travel there.

Melbourne even get their 3 game round in Round 16 scheduled with all home games.

Perth have to play their's BRI away, CRN home, ADE away over 5 days...

Once again, Seems Fair

First of all the league doesn't like Perth, why would they do them any favours?

Secondly this season has seen teams play each other in a close span of time.

Eg SEM have already played PER and will not see them unless playoffs brackets align.

Thirdly, the league would have to have known that the travel bubble would come up and intentionally schedule them for MEL and PER first. This is unlikely.

Anything else?

Will people crack it when the NBL cup goes to Tassie next season?

Sydney have to go from NZ to Perth after two games in NZ. Other than NZ I'd say Sydney have had the longest time away from home.

I think a lot of people will crack it if the NBL Cup happens at all next season

Not a huge fan of nbl cup but as Melbourne has had it's turn it's only logical to rotate it around, Tassie next followed by NZ.

If Covid settles down can we never had an NBL cup again?

Just go back to normal scheduling, add another 4 games per team to play 2H and 2A against the VJJs.

If we do have another NBL cup....I fear going elsewhere will result in poor crowds.

Tickets were $10 each at John Cain and the crowds were awful.

Would next season go back to starting at the normal time of October? If so the NBL Cup may have better crowds during the school holidays.

You are all aware the Victorian government paid for the NBL cup. Perhaps if other state governments weren't so tight. Any other state could have stumped up the cash

and add the extra 4 games to balance the numbers of games played against other teams. i.e., no more playing some teams 3 games and the rest 4 games in the regular season.
