Breakers Breaking Records
Alex Pledger and the Breakers are unstoppable at the moment.
In a 2 game series vs top of the table rivals and reigning champs the Perth Wild Cats the Breakers looked as they were on another level.
In the first game, the Breakers were too strong winning 88-84 at home.
In the 2nd leg, the Breakers had to take the long flight to Perth. Due to this and the Wildcats impressive home record, Perth came into the game as hot favourites.
However, throughout the game, the Breakers continued to counter any challenge the Wildcats hit them with including a pivotal basket from the Chief Alex Pledger late in the game.
Alex was a standout with 15 points and 8 rebounds. The Breakers won 88-82 and with that have broken the previous franchise record by winning 8 games in a row.
