    The Breakers are seeing the upside from their 96-91 loss to the Sydney Kings in their Australian basketball league opener

    The Breakers are seeing the upside from their 96-91 loss to the Sydney Kings in their Australian basketball league opener


    Foul trouble and defensive errors from the New Zealand side and strong performances from Casper Ware and Andrew Bogut ultimately swung the game in Sydney's favour.

    Breakers coach Dan Shamir says if they score 91 points they expect to win, and they feel like their attack hasn't yet reached it's potential.



    The Cairns Taipans beat the Perth Wildcats 99-76.
