ANBL: New Zealand Breakers storm out of slump to thrash Adelaide 36ers

The New Zealand Breakers have ended their four-game losing streak to thrash the Adelaide 36ers 106-62 in the NBL cup. 

Adelaide came into the contest with a 6-6 record and heavy favourites for the contest, but the New Zealand side surprised everyone and put on a historic performance. 

The Breakers were playing their first game without star import Lamar Patterson who'll be out for over a month but you wouldn't have noticed. 

The Kiwi side annihilated the Sixers early with a 32-6 start to set a league record for the largest first-quarter lead in a 40-minute game. 

The Breakers didn't let off in the second stanza, increasing their lead to 30 points at halftime creating a club record for the biggest halftime lead. 

The New Zealand side went on with the job to produce a near-perfect performance to become the first team to earn maximum points in the NBL Cup by winning all four quarters.

Head Coach Dan Shamir was thrilled with the victory but wasn't getting carried away with the result. 

"Obviously it's just one win in a league that we are behind by a lot but hopefully we can ride on it and build on it," coach Dan Shamir says.

The Auckland franchise were lead by the Webster brothers who were on fire all night and plagued Adelaide problems all evening. Corey Webster (29 points, five three-pointers) and Tai Webster (29 points, 11 assists) lead their side to the equal largest winning margin in franchise history. 

The result matched the 44-point victory over the Sydney Spirit back in 2008. 

The 36ers where lead by Jack McVeigh, whose 20-point were in vain in a night his side would like to forget quickly. 

The win moves the Breakers to 2-6 for the season but it's not enough to move them off the bottom of the ladder. 

The New Zealand franchise will hope this is the turning point in their season and will get their next opportunity to build on this on Wednesday against the Brisbane Bullets.
