Breakers not fazed by pre-season results

The New Zealand Breakers basketball coach Andrej Lemanis says the side isn't concerned with results in the upcoming ANBL pre-season tournament.

The two time defending champions had their final training in Auckland on Tuesday before flying out for the pre-season tournament in Melbourne.

Lemanis wasn't worried that the Breakers lost last week's pre-season series 2-1 to the Wollongong Hawks as they were focusing on perfecting their offensive and defensive patterns and he says the same applies for the Melbourne tournament.

The Breakers are still without star forward Tom Abercrombie, whose recovery from off-season surgery on his ankle is taking longer than expected.
