The Saints finally recovered from their losing streak and beat Taranaki away from home last week.

The Saints suffered an embarrassing loss away to the undermanned Canterbury Rams on Friday but got going a couple of days later against Taranaki and won 103:92. The main question is can they finally start winning consistently after the losses they suffered at the start?
The Saints have put together a top team by adding a player who was in the Australian NBL MVP contention this season. They showed all of their class in their last game and at the moment have no room for error. The Sharks will be playing a back-to-back game and are coming off a loss to the Hawks away from home which means this a perfect opportunity for the hosts to grab a vital win at home.

The Sharks are not a mere shadow of the team they were last season. This Thursday against the Hawks they suffered their fifth straight loss and will really have a mountain to climb if they want to reverse the trend.
The Bay Hawks scored well over 100 points against them so it will be tough for the Sharks to repeat their performance from the opening game of the season when they crushed the Saints by 117:81. The champions were still without imports then and with a very limited team so they have an ideal opportunity to exact revenge today and notch a very important win in their playoff fight.
FINAL: @NZBayHawks win it 107-92 on the back of dominant second half. @Mojaveee with 29p/5r/4a, DKP 24p/5r/5a & @WinnShepard_35 18p/13r/4a. On to Wellington for Saturday night’s clash with the @saintswgtn #SalsNBL Image by Roshy Sportfolio pic.twitter.com/U9tBhVAavb
