Breakers enjoy run in to the playoffs

12:47 pm on 15 March 2012

The New Zealand Breakers play their final regular season home game of the Australian basketball season tonight against the Gold Coast Blaze in Auckland.

The Breakers sewed up the minor premiership for the second straight season last weekend on the road at Adelaide and the defending champions finish up with the Blaze home and away, with a road game at another top-four side, the Townsville Crocodiles, inbetween.

Then it's onto the playoffs with home advantage guaranteed.

It's the third finals series for the Breakers veteran forward Dillon Boucher - and the Tall Black says they couldn't have asked for a better run-in to the playoffs.

Tip-off's just after half past seven tonight at a sold-out North Shore Events Centre.
