Braswell can expect a new fine from the NBL headquarters after striking the consistency of officiating in his team's 98-93 overtime loss to league leaders in Auckland on Friday.

Five Breakers fouled out of the race, compared to no one from Perth, who made a remarkable 43 trips to the free throw line.

A foul count of 35-18 was too much for Braswell, who got a fine of $ 500 for a more compiled criticism of the referees after losing to Melbourne United last week.

"Basketball is not fun if you're going to do this game constantly after the game. Every time I look at it, it's exactly the same, and this is probably the ultimate worst," said Braswell.

"In America they let you play a bit harder, in Europe they let you play a bit harder, I do not know in my life if I've seen 35 mistakes for one team and 18 for the next one.

"How do you win? How do you have a chance to win?"

Braswell was not impressed by his $ 500 fine last week, but at least felt that his grievances had been heard by NBL officials.

Now he said he does not know where to turn, because the Breakers (4-6) race to a return ticket with the Wildcats (9-1) in Perth on Sunday.

When the teams met there three weeks ago, the Breakers tried to make only three clear shots to Perth 21.

"You can not tell me that the same thing does not happen on both sides," Braswell said.

"I did not say anything wrong and I got a fine for it, I only asked for consistency and that's what I feel I do not get, that's where my frustration is, that's the frustration of our team."

Breakers & # 39; American attacker Armani Moore came to Corey Webster, Shawn Long, Tom Abercrombie and Tai Wesley as spectators at the end of the game and described the scenario as "absurd".

Moore said early mistakes against the Kiwi club in almost every game forces them to change how they play.

"I do not even feel like being the most aggressive team in the league, but somehow we seem to be the most aggressive team on paper in every game."
