The New Zealand Breakers lead going into the first break 21-19. And the second quarter saw both teams come out firing with the lead trading places on multiple occasions. Elvin Mims (13 points) completed a 3 point play going into half time break with the crocs taking the lead 44-41. Gill and Schencher took the lead to double figures with a 3 from gill followed by a nice hook from Schencher. And back to back threes from Holmes and Crawford had the home side chasing a 20 point deficit that was too much for the home side to reign in.
“That’s just a confidence factor,” said Woolpert. “We played well the first time we were here [at Vector Arena] and we like shooting in this gym. That confidence carried over to tonight."
“All of us know that and we understand what’s ahead of us.”
Game two of the series will be a good game. I dont see the Breakers lyeing down on the job this time. They'll have something to prove, the minor premiors wont want to go down this easily.
And how good did was the television production compared to ONE HD. The shooting of the game and whole media aspect of it was far better then any game i have seen all season. Thats the first New Zeland game i have seen but one hd need to take a look at see how its done.
