Some Sky Sport Breakers numbers ahead of round three of the NBL including a significant milestone for Corey Webster.
For the second successive season we are likely to see five debutants take to the floor in the opening game against Sydney. Other than the inaugural NBL game the Breakers played back in 2003 against Adelaide five is the highest number of debutants for the Breakers in a single game.
Last season it was Shawn Long, Armani Moore, Majok Majok, Patrick Richard and Jarrad Weeks that debuted on the opening night at Spark Arena against Brisbane.
On Friday it is the turn of Brandon Ashley, RJ Hampton, Sek Henry, Scotty Hopson and Ater Majok take the floor against Sydney Kings.
The five debutants will become Breakers #109 through to #113
Breaker #47 Corey Webster will play game number 200 for the Breakers in the home encounter with Sydney on Sunday.
Currently sitting on 198 games he will become just the sixth player to reach the double century mark for the club after Mika Vukona (354), Tom Abercrombie (303), Paul Henare (250), Alex Pledger (238) and Dillon Boucher (220).
Head Coach Dan Shamir
Dan Shamir becomes the seventh Breakers lead coach following in the footsteps of Jeff Green, Frank Arsego, Andrej Lemanis, Dean Vickerman, Paul Henare and Kevin Braswell.
Also a mention to Zico Coronell who will be sideline for the first time in his new role as Breakers Assistant Coach.
Opening Game of the season.
In their previous 16 season openers the Breakers have won on nine occasions. The percentage win record away from home is even better with three victories and just the one loss. The only time the Breakers have played in Sydney for their season curtain raiser was back in 2010 when former coach Kevin Braswell scored 16 points to lead the Breakers to an 83-70 win.
