The New Zealand Breakers have won their first road game of the Australian basketball season, beating the Melbourne Tigers 75-64 at Hisense Arena to add to the Tigers' early-season woes.

The Tigers remain winless after coughing up the ball 21 times while scoring only 18 points in the paint.

The back-to-back defending champion Breakers were led by Thomas Abercrombie with 20 points and Cedric Jackson with 19.

Elsewhere the Sydney Kings shocked the Crocodiles with a 92-87 win in Townsville.
