Breakers v Taipans 15/01

Going to be some tired bodies out there with the Taipans only arriving at their hotel about 2am today.

Should be an interesting game, regardless. We've seen a couple of extreme blowouts lately, Taipans want no part of that!

Pinder out for Taipans, Brown out for Breakers.

NZ had tough schedule as well, no excuses for either team. Hopefully this plays out like their position on the ladder, 2nd v 3rd and not like cats v sixes blow out.

Cairns win will give them a nice gap in second place and NZ win makes second place up for grabs. Two coaches that have excelled, two teams that have excelled.

Who wins, I got no idea, but a last shot on the buzzer would be great after OT.

Quality start by both sides. Love nz commentary.

Cairns better first quarter, looking good, Hogg on fire. Cairns by seven. Full house, nbl on fire.

Ex-Taipans everywhere, even on commentary :)

Cairns imports are great, good Australian core and they are tough.

Breakers are dropping out of the game because of their poor 3-point shooting, esp from the left corner - I've seen 5 misses from just when I’ve been watching. Good offense to get the shots, but poor finishing.

This game has had some of the weirdest (ie poorest) ref calls I’ve ever seen in a game. I’m surprised the coaches are still in the stadium - I would have gone ballistic by now.

Free throws missed by breakers certainly hurting. Hanging in though on the back WMW. Taipans probably deserve to be more in front than the eight points they are.

Abercrombie clearly playing hurt. Brutal defensive game.

Overflow coverage from Sky is still airing on the ESPN app. It feels cool having coverage of two games at the same time.

Fantastic game
Dumb last play from nz
Cairns probably deserved their win
Imo refs did very well overall, called hand checks but let them play physical, yes I've been complementary to refs
WMW is a fantastic player, imo should be in Australian team, fiba quality point guard
McCall is fantastic at both ends, best defender in the league
Both coaches excellent
Free throw misses very costly to nz
Kuol, Waardenburg great
Abercrombie very good
Cairns probably got second place to keep

Brisbane would want to reach out to WMW this offseason, but I don't see him leaving NZ

I could see WMW in the Spanish league, he would need the right coach but he's a classic fiba type guard. Possibly Germany, France as well. Some good coin to be made there.

"Abercrombie very good".

He was woeful

Abercrombie is like playing 4 on 5. Just is old and playing terrible .

Btw. Brantley was awesome.

Each to their own big dog, Brantley was good but too many brain fades, especially when game was on line. Abercrombie defensively and team work was great.

Brantley carried an excessive load bc Abercrombie gives us nothing.

Abercrombie has 5 points over 3 games on 30 minutes a game. He is the biggest reason we lost our last 3 games. he doesn't even look at the basket on offence. Woeful is being polite to his game. He is utter turd.

Brantley went for 23 and 14. Each to their own I guess, but, really!?

@Manu - WMW would be perfect for the Blanks. He said though in an interview pre-season that he was comfortable playing away from home as he wasn't fond of the pressure et al that comes form playing in front of family, friends etc.
