Perth’s over­time win

The Weekend Post - - Sport -

THE Perth Wild­cats have found a fa­mil­iar way to win, staving off an ill-dis­ci­plined New Zealand Break­ers 98-93 in over­time to stretch their NBL lead. No fewer than five Break­ers play­ers fouled out in a phys­i­cal clash in Auck­land be­fore the Wild­cats dom­i­nated their archri­vals in the ex­tra pe­riod. The scores were locked 84-84 at the end of reg­u­lar time af­ter the Break­ers fought back from a 13-point deficit in the third quar­ter but they couldn’t main­tain their charge, barely able to field five play­ers in the clos­ing min­utes.
