The SKY City Breakers bounced back from their loss to the Tigers last week to record an emphatic 106-78 victory over the Sydney Kings. The 350th NBL game played by the Breakers produced some interesting numbers.
2 – Jack Salt put an exclamation mark on the victory with a ‘Globetrotters’ type move to record his first points of the season.
9 – The Breakers have won 9 straight home games against Sydney since the Kings re-entered the NBL in 201010 – Kerron Johnson came up with a symmetrical 10 points and 10 assists.- his first double double of the campaign.
9 – The number of consecutive points scored by CJ to open the second half. He created the double digit buffer that the home team were able to build their winning platform on. The classy guard departed to a standing ovation – expect more of the same at Vector this week.
14 – The number of points contributed by Tom Abercrombie. You had to feel sorry for Tom trying to mark the beast in a Sydney singlet that was Sam Young. Tom took a few bruises but did a fine job on the powerful former NBA man.
101.5 – The average number of points the Breakers have scored this season against the Kings.
130 – Mika Vukona had a quiet game by his standards, his 130th victory in a Breakers singlet moves him to within one win of the club record 131 held by Dillon Boucher.
1,407 – Not a bad haul of points from ‘Big Red” – Wilkinson is the 7th Breaker to score over 1,400 points for the club. He certainly enjoys playing the Kings having scored 33,31,30 and 17 in the four games against them this season.
