Breakers finals ambitions dealt near fatal blow

7:27 am on 22 February 2014

The New Zealand Breakers playoff aspirations are all but over after the three-time defending champions were outclassed 88-68 by the Hawks in their NBL basketball clash in Wollongong.

The Breakers lie sixth in the 8 team competition, 3 wins outside the top four with six games remaining.

A loss in Adelaide on Sunday really would spell the end of the New Zealander's post-season ambitions.
