Well done to the New Zealand Breakers.
They beat the Perth Wildcats for the
ANBL title 70-66, making it Three
titles in row.
CJ Burton sunk two clutch three rows
at the end for the breakers to clinch
it for the nzbreakers.
It was a total team effort, you would
expect nothing less from this team, which
have always played tough, there isnt a
tougher club from any sport in New Zealand.
What they have done for the sport of
Basketball in New Zealand, cannot be measured.
They play an exciting brand of basketball, aggressive
defensive and plenty of outside shooting, the team
bleeds for each other, and it shows in the results.
To be a New Zealand club and to do well in
an Australian competition is an achievement
in itself, to THREEPEAT in a Australia competition
is unbelievable .
You just have to watch the game last night, to
see that every play meant something to the
Breakers, Corletto was not stepping down
for anyone, it was a complete performance.
The Perth Wildcats must be gutted, to come
up short again in front of their 13 thousand
home fans, must be heartbreaking, this league
now has a fierce rivalry, the two teams furthest
away from each other has transformed the
Again well done to the NZBreakers, lets hope
the Halberg judges later in the year will be sitting
up and taking notice, because they deserve it.
Well done to the Breakers.
