The Breakers will have to combat an old foe and a short turnaround if they're to continue their winning ways in the Australian basketball league.

On Friday night, a change in their defensive set-up has allowed the Breakers to secure a 104-96 victory over the Adelaide 36ers in the Australian basketball league.

Shawn Long scored 28 points and pulled down 18 rebounds for the visitors, while Corey Webster returned to form with 17 points hitting five of eight of his shots.

This afternoon, the North Shore club host the Perth Wildcats in Auckland this afternoon.

Shooter Corey Webster told Nigel Yalden its up to each player to cope with the lack of rest between games.

"Whether it's stretching, getting out for a walk, staying hydrated, eating good, whatever it is, make sure you fit that in. Once you're in the stadium, it's no excuses. We're there, we step between the lines and its game time."
