The playoff dream is now a distinct reality for the New Zealand Breakers.

How far they’ve come from the tatters of those six straight defeats that wedged them firmly between a rock and a hard place. Now the Australian NBL’s defending champions, by virtue of three straight more-or-less sudden-death victories, must assuredly fancy their chances of another playoff run.
