Breakers guard Cedric Jackson has emphatically won his head-to-head with Melbourne's former top-10 NBA draft pick Jonny Flynn.
Jackson has brought up his first Australian NBL triple-double, helping the Breakers to a 94-64 thrashing of the Tigers at the North Shore Events Centre in Auckland, amazing swingman Tom Abercrombie.
"Unbelievable; one of the best games I've ever seen anyone play; the numbers speak for themselves.
"That was a special performance."
The import is dedicating his 28 points, 10 rebounds and 10 assists to his team mates.
"The coach has told me I was close to it, and I just wanted to stay within myself and play within the team, not try to get hurt or anything like that, so my teammates had my back.
"That's the great thing about our team."
Melbourne Tigers coach Chris Anstey has been ruthless in his assessment of his side's performance, saying his side was rubbish.
"I'm ashamed that we dished that up.
"We flew over to New Zealand and laid a massive turd on the floor - that's what that game was for us."
The Breakers eighth win of the season gives them a chance to reclaim top of the ladder depending on other results this weekend.
