While initially, it could sound like a bit of a fizzer, this has the potential to turn out to be a cracking contest.
Both teams go into this match coming off much-needed wins with Cairns upsetting Melbourne United by seven points on their home court and the Breakers easily got the job done against Illawarra in Auckland.
Despite the win last week, the Breakers still have their issues both on and off the court and with Cairns are a single win of a spot on the ladder that puts them in finals contention need to win this.
Cairns has been a bit hit and miss this season but they’ve recently come into some good form and playing the flat-track bullies the NZ Breakers and a chance to get into finals contention – this is a game they can’t afford to lose if they are to have any hope this season.
It won’t be a walkover, but the Taipans should get the job done on Friday night.
Tip: Cairns Taipans at $1.45
