Breakers to Win Bullets | Stuff.co.nz

Tom Abercrombie of the Breakers shoots during the fifth five NBL matches between Brisbane Bullets and New Zealand Breakers on November 11.


In the midst of a rumor of a game that went through the fingers of New Zealand breakers, coach Kevin Braswell had no doubt that Tom Abercrombie would bring a final blow.

And so it happened that the 11-season veteran NBL killed fantastic fights with the Bullet's last-in second, which broke the Breakers 85-84 victory at Brisbane Convention Center.

Bombs took up to 23 points in the first half before the guards Adam Gibson (17 points) and Cameron Gliddon (14) almost pulled the home side back to an exceptional return.

Gibson hit two misdemeanor bullets to bring his side a solid spot within the last minute before Abercrombie hit the fierce finals of the game.

"Tommy is up and down this season," said Braswell.

"But Tommy will play when you need him.

"Whether it's a defensive end or an offensive goal, he has come up with a huge offensive board – I thought it was great on both sides tonight."

The win helped breakers breakers in fourth place, while the second loss of Brisbane at the buzz during the weekend recorded Bullet's heels.

New Zealand should have a game in its possession after the first half but the bullet does not know when to stop.

Two days after taking the whistle to sink Brisbane to Perth, the guys called energy out of the reserve when Adam Gibson had come down to 17 points.

However, they gave too much to the Breakers and could not lead to the visitors who had excellent lead by 21 points to Patrick Richards.

"It's huge for us," said Braswell whose Breakers also won a Cairns win in the 5th round.

Going so close to winning after falling behind, they showed that the shots were a wonderful figure.

They look strong with the new import of Lamar Patterson (seven thieves) on the floor and the fourth quarter of the Gibson hero brought a bunch of 3170 on their feet.

"There should not be 20 players to get close to that, and that's a second, and if we get a game like Perth, it's 6-3 instead of 4-5," said Gibson.

"It's about two footage. All that leads to that stuff is what matters.

"Early mistakes in the game have hurt us, we show that when we play the right way, we will win everybody."
