Breakers lose three in a row

12:27 pm on 14 December 2013

The New Zealand Breakers have lost their third match in a row, going down to the Perth Wildcats, 71-62 in Auckland on Friday night.

It was the Breakers' third defeat this season by league leaders Perth - the beaten grand finalists the last two years running.

The Breakers now face a difficult road trip in which the three-time defending champions play the top four teams in the Australian basketball competition.

With four wins and nine losses the Breakers are second to last on the ladder.
