Breakers wrap

Back to back losses were not in the script for the SKY CITY Breakers last weekend. A dissapointing 88-68 loss against the Wollongong Hawks last Friday was followed by a closer encounter against the Adelaide 36ers on Sunday, the second placed 36ers edging a thriller 96-92. The two defeats leave the SKY CITY Breakers probably needing to win every remaining game to have a chance of making the play-offs. Continue reading

Breakers v Wollongong and Adelaide Preview

A couple of weeks ago the Sky City Breakers upcoming double header on the road appeared difficult, but now it’s downright tough. Continue reading

Casey Frank Still Nameless and More from the Cairns Victory

The man with the nameless singlet, No48 Casey Frank once again made a significant contribution as the SKY CITY Breakers eventually eased past the Cairns Taipans 96-78 on Friday evening. Frank has been with the club for six weeks and likely to remain on the payroll for at least another fortnight and possibly until the end of the season. Surely the club can afford to sew five letters on the back of his playing singlet. Continue reading

Preview – Breakers v Cairns

Despite a career high 33 points from Gary Wilkinson, the SKY CITY Breakers suffered a heart breaking two point loss to the Sydney Kings, 98-96 in Sydney last Saturday. The accompanying supporters tour had plenty to cheer about as an exciting game unfolded. Wilkinson nailed four consecutive triples in the third period but ultimately he and the team will rue missed scoring opportunities in the dying seconds. Kerron Johnson, enjoying good form at present, also had a strong game contributing 18 points and 10 assists. If you haven’t seen it yet, check out a replay of his running three pointer on the half time buzzer when surrounded by three Kings defenders – certainly one for the end of season highlights reel.

Trivia Tuesday

Gary Wilkinson, who is poised to become the 9th Breaker to score 1300 points for the club, posted a career high 33 points against Sydney Kings on Saturday taking his season tally to 246 points and his career total to 1299.

Wilkinson made a sluggish start to the season. Arriving a month into the campaign as a replacement for Darnell Lazare, Wilkinson was in reasonable condition but certainly not in game shape.

The 31 year old from Utah produced only two double-digit scoring games in his first six outings. However, since the Breakers Xmas break he has averaged 20.7 points a game in seven fixtures as well as securing 6 rebounds per game.

Despite the aforementioned slow start his season output currently sits at 15.4 points, 5.5 rebounds and 1.1 assists per game. These figures compare very favourably with the vintage form he displayed in the championship winning 2011-12 season. Back then he averaged 16.0 points, 5.8 rebounds and 1.2 assists per game.

‘Big Red’ is firing but will this be enough to propel the Breakers into the play-offs?
