Sydney Kings
January 29, 2013 by Marc Jerbs

On Thursday, the New Zealand Breakers will host the Sydney Kings in Round 16 of the 2014 National Basketball League. Game time is set at 7:30PM local time and will be held at Vector Arena.

New Zealand would like to duplicate their win against the Sydney. In Round 11, the Breakers won 99-83. New Zealand won as it employed a highly physical full court defense that led to numerous turnovers by Sydney.

The Sydney Kings have evolved into a more competitive team after their loss against the Breakers. They have improved their halfcourt offense by having more floor spacing. They also tinkered with their transition defense and developed a scheme to counter its opponent's half and full court defense.

The sportsbook handicappers have installed the New Zealand Breakers as a 2.5-point favorite to beat the Sydney Kings on Thursday night.
