NASSA: 72 (12, 30, 54, 72)
MK Breakers: 94 (22, 49, 72, 94)

MK Breakers continued their winning run as they overcame NASSA 94-72 in their latest NBL Division 2 outing.

The Breakers took a depleted side to East London as both Blayne Freckleton and Buai Luak were out of action. Despiste Billy Beddow having to use different line ups on the court – the Breakers showcased their strength in depth to pick up yet another league victory.

Familiar faces Jordan Spencer, Nate Robinson, Dante Langley and Chris Tawiah took to the court from the off – with youngster William Issekya handed a start. It was an unusually slow start from the Breakers with Tawiah’s hookshot the only points on the board with just under two-minutes played. Jordan Spencer added his first points of the evening shortly after, but the hosts drew level once again. Robinon’s first three points of the evening gave his side some breathing room, with Spencer converting from the same spot to extend the lead. Will Issekya made it three from three from the exact same spot as the youngster effortlessly added three points to the scoreboard.

Tawiah and Luke Gregory added points from the free throw line, before Nate Robinson’s ‘and one’ play pushed the Breakers lead to six points. The quarter closed with points from both Gregory and Langley to give the Breakers a 22-12 lead after the opening quarter.

Jordan Spencer opened the scoring for the Breakers in the second quarter as he converted twice from the free throw line before Robinson converted his second three of the clash, his points were followed by Gregory’s lay up, before Robinson added another two points to the tally.

Leon Henry added his first points of the game as he converted from beyond the arc with Will Issekya doing the same shortly after. Henry, Langley and Tawiah followed up with points of their own as the Breakers started to put their foot down towards the end of the second. The Breakers led by 13 with just two minutes left to play in the opening half and that lead was further extended by Issekya and Tawiah. Spencer added a final two points to give the Breakers some breathing room at the break as they led 49-30.

The break in play arguably worked in favour of NASSA as they outscored the Breakers 24-23 in the third quarter. Perhaps the highlight of the quarter for the Breakers, however, came as Spencer converted his three point effort, before Robinson scored a further two to add nine points in such a short space of time. The hosts were scoring well and causing problems for the Breakers defensively with Billy Beddow’s side leading 72-54 heading into the final quarter.

NASSA once again scored well in the fourth, but the Breakers were able to cause turnovers defensively to prevent the lead being cut into. The Breakers, for the third time in the clash, hit three three pointers in a row – this time Spencer converting twice before Henry added a third.

Nate Robinson capped off a Player of the Game performance as his three pointer closed off the scoring for the Breakers to secure an impressive 94-72 win. Robinson and Spencer led the Breakers with 25 points apiece, whilst Dante Langley joined them in double figures with 12,
