Breakers keen to avoid another game one loss

7:18 am on 12 April 2012

The Breakers basketballers begin the final leg of their quest to defend their ANBL title in Auckland tonight when they host the Perth Wildcats in game one of the best of three grand final series.

It's still unclear whether they'll have the services of star Tom Abercrombie but it's likely the injured forward will play some role in the match.

The New Zealanders reached the grand final the hard way after losing to Townsville in game one of the semi-final series at home before having to win the next two games to keep their title defence alive.

Tonight's game is at Vector Arena and tips off at 7:35pm.
