Kiwis put Pigs on spit

New Zealand captain Pero Cameron found his three-point stroke at just the right time as the Breakers ended their NBL losing streak and increased West Sydney's to record-equalling proportions at Liverpool.

The Breakers notched their first away win in almost two months and only their second in 12 trips across the Tasman this season with a 106-92 victory over floundering West Sydney at Liverpool's EG Whitlam Centre.

The result virtually ended any lingering hope West Sydney had of making the finals and was their seventh straight loss, equalling the club record set in 2000.

West Sydney led 30-22 at quartertime, but was comprehensively outplayed for the remainder of the game.

Forward Cameron, who scored only four points in the first three quarters, nailed three three-pointers early in the final period to give New Zealand a double-digit lead which West Sydney failed to reel in.

Each team went into the game without its starting centre.

Razorbacks big man Nick Horvath was ruled out for the remainder of the campaign after suffering a stress fracture of his left big toe at training.

And Breakers centre Ben Pepper was ruled out after spraining an ankle in Friday night's loss at Hunter.

West Sydney, which hasn't won a game in 2005, started well, but imploded in the second quarter when it turned the ball over nine times and was outscored 26-17.

The Razorbacks missed all four of their first half three-point attempts, but fought back from the third quarter after trailing 48-47 at halftime.
