New Zealand Breakers Team News

On the back of the stellar form of their import star Jarrell Brantley, the New Zealand Breakers have officially taken over the top spot from the reigning champions. The Breakers are currently riding a 4-game winning streak, which was topped off with probably their most impressive win of the season when they decimated the Brisbane Bullets last Sunday(116:79).

The Breakers have also won their last five games at Christchurch Arena, but their opponents today are also flying high and have plans of their own. All of this should produce a memorable and exciting matchup with both teams looking to secure an important victory after splitting the first two head-to-head games.

South East Melbourne Phoenix Team News

In his 300th NBL game, Mitch Creek was a man on a mission. He dominated the Illawarra Hawks four days ago with 27 points setting a new club record for the largest winning margin in the 34-point victory(112:78).

Besides winning their last two games in convincing fashion, the Phoenix have also started playing defense limiting Melbourne United and the Illawarra Hawks at 69 and 78 points. Their newly found form will be put to the test against the new league leaders, but the Melbourne Phoenix have every right to be optimistic as they take on the Breakers in their Christchurch fortress.

New Zealand Breakers vs. South East Melbourne Phoenix Prediction

The bookmakers have decided to give the hosts a small 3.5-point advantage, which is a fair spread for this game and should be avoided.

As we already stated, the Phoenix allowed only 69 and 78 points in their last two games, but it was against the cellar-dwelling United and Illawarra. The Breakers are on another level offensively and are coming off their best offensive performance this season. In addition, these teams currently have two of the best in-form forwards in the league, so we are expecting a high-scoring match in New Zealand with 170+ points.
