NBA, to­day 3pm; to­mor­row 2.30pm; Thurs­day 2pm; Fri­day 2pm/4.30pm. ANBL, to­day 7.30pm/9.30pm; to­mor­row 5pm/9pm; Thurs­day 9.30pm; Fri­day 9.30pm.

There’s plenty of hoops for fans of both the NBA and Aus­tralian NBL. The Break­ers con­tinue to spring the sur­prises and de­fied the odds by emerg­ing from last week­end atop the stand­ings. Only peren­nial ri­vals Perth re­main in touch at this early stage. They met here on Thurs­day and go at it again af­ter mak­ing the long haul west. The Break­ers have shown their re­silience and de­ter­mi­na­tion in clos­ing out some tight matches, as Syd­ney, one of the more favoured teams, have been in freefall to the bot­tom of the lad­der. The stand-off in Perth is the sec­ond of two games to­mor­row. The NBA is in full swing, with five matches on our screens this week, in­clud­ing games fea­tur­ing hot favourites Golden State and Cleve­land. The War­riors meet the 76ers to­mor­row and the Celtics on Fri­day, while the Cavs face the Hor­nets on Thurs­day. The Cavs have been slow out of the blocks and sit well down in 12th in the East, which is headed by the Celtics. The 76ers are sev­enth with a 5 & 4 record. Golden State are third in the West at 7 & 3, just be­hind the Rock­ets who lead at 8 & 3.
