The New Zealand Breakers have beaten the Cairns Taipans 73-70 thanks to a late match-winner from import Edgar Sosa.

Locked at 70-all with three seconds to go, the point guard hit a three-pointer in the corner to steal the game, but not before Cairns made a late run at it.

With 0.01 seconds left on the clock, Taipans captain Cam Gliddon replied with an incredible full court shot, but it was waved away for being too late.

Sosa was happy to bask in the moment post-match.

"There is nothing better, in the game of basketball there is nothing better," Sosa said.

"It was a great play by coach, I was supposed to be the decoy but they came out in a zone so I took it."

Multiple players on each team finished in double digits, with Kirk Penney, Finn Delany, Tom Abercrombie, DJ Newbill and Mika Vukona starring for the Breakers.

Dayshon Smith, Alex Loughton, Michael Carrera and Jarrad Weeks top-scored for the Taipans.
