6:08 am on 15 November 2010

The New Zealand Breakers basketball side's unbeaten record was blasted to smithereens last night, as the ANBL defending champions Perth inflicted a 114-74 drubbing at the Challenge Stadium in WA.

The Wildcats (4-3) outscored the Breakers (5-1) in every quarter, finishing off with a 32-10 advantage in the last quarter.

Forward Shawn Redhage piled up 32 points to lead the Perth onslaught while guard Kevin Braswell headed New Zealand's scoresheet with 16.

Earlier in the round, New Zealand scored an 82-78 away win over Adelaide (2-3) but couldn't match that feat in Perth last night.

The Breakers tackled the Doomsday Double roadtrip without highscoring guard Kirk Penney, who was in Italy for his brother's wedding.
