The New Zealand Breakers have beaten the Adelaide 36ers 91 to 77 in Auckland to tighten their grip on the lead in the Australian National Basketball League.

After a slow start, the Breakers shut out the 36ers for the first half of the second quarter to build a 55-36 half time lead and were never threatened in the second half.

The American import Gary Wilkinson finished with a game high 21 points.

This is the Breakers 13th win in 16 games.
