new zealand vs. illawarra hawks
february 2nd 7:30pm
The New Zealand Breakers and Illawarra Hawks come head to head with each other on Wednesday night.
In what has been a brutal season to date for the Breakers, with no end to the disaster in sight, they will somehow attempt to salvage a win against a Hawks team coming off a big win against Cairns.
The Breakers have only managed to win two of their 10 games this season and matters were made worse after they were suffocated in a 83-59 loss against the newly-found Tasmania JackJumpers.
New Zealand has definitely lacked leadership on the court this season when the times have become tough.
Missing captain Tom Abercrombie has been to the massive detriment of the Breakers with his influence being sorely missed.
The Hawks, meanwhile, looked to be going great guns after a thumping win over Cairns in which Tyler Harvey dominated from the onset.
Harvey notched up 24 points in the victory and increase his scoring average this season to 16.5 points per game through nine fixtures.
The Hawks will likely have too much fire power in this contest for the struggling Breakers to handle.
Illawarra Hawks -5.5 at $1.86
Total score under 167.5 at $1.87
