New Zealand Breakers Team News

After their opening overtime loss to Melbourne United, the Breakers went on a tear winning their next three games and currently find themselves in third place. When last season ended, the team from New Zealand announced a new and reinvigorated Breakers side and so far they have kept their promise.

Their last away win over the Illawarra Hawks was particularly impressive. The Breakers were without their top import Barry Brown, but managed to subdue a slow Illawarra side and notched a convicing 88:62 victory. Their main foreign star is questionable for today´s game, but their team has already hit excellent form and should be able to fight for the win even if he is ruled out.

South East Melbourne Phoenix Team News

The South East Melbourne Phoenix and head coach Simon Mitchell have been experiencing all sorts of headaches at the start of the new season. Plagued by a couple of key absences and with many of their stars out of form, they failed to replicate their opening night win over Tasmania and lost their last three consecutive games.

Ahead of today´s clash in Auckland, they finally have something to look forward to as they will have a full squad available for the first time since March. Imports Trey Kell and Qi Zhou finally made their debut last weekend along with the experienced veteran Ryan Broekhoff. This Thursday their presence will be bolstered by the debut of Phoenix´s biggest offseason reinforcement Gary Browne, who is expected to make an instant impact.

New Zealand Breakers vs South East Melbourne Phoenix Prediction

After a very slow start, the Phoenix have a solid opportunity to rebound today with a full lineup at their disposal. They are playing away from home against one of the hottest teams in the league, which means an upset win would do wonders for their undermined morale.
