The New Zealand Breakers are still enjoying a purple patch in the Australian National Basketball league.

They remain second on the table, one win behind Melbourne's South Dragons with a game in hand, with the defending champion Melbourne Tigers in third place.

Mid-week the Breakers beat Sydney Spirit by a club record 44 points, and at the weekend they went to Perth and beat the 4th-placed Wildcats by 24 points.
