The New Zealand Breakers have scored a first up win at a pre-season basketball tournament in China.

The Breakers scored a 97-87 overtime victory over Liaoning.

The match was played outdoors and at one stage the players were invaded by a swarm of locusts, dragonflies and crickets.

The result moves the Breakers into the final four play-offs.

The Breakers were called into the tournament as a late replacement.
