    The Breakers are taking a silver lining out of a fifth straight loss

    The Breakers are taking a silver lining out of a fifth straight loss


    They've fallen 71-70 to the Sydney Kings at Spark Arena, with a late rally unable to cancel out a six-point third quarter.

    But in a game where three other guards failed to fire, Jarrad Weeks had a season-high 19 points off the bench.

    He says he was trying to get the team to play to their strength of high-tempo basketball.

    The Breakers next game is against the Cairns Taipans on Sunday.
