NBL Sunday kicks off at 1 pm Eastern Standard time, with Melbourne United hosting the New Zealand Breakers at John Cain Arena.
Melbourne United is coming off one of the most one-sided wins in recent times against Sydney last Thursday. They led from start to finish and made easy work of the Kings, winning the match 89-47. Caleb Agada led the way with 21 points for United, whilst the defence of former NBA Champion Matthew Dellavedova was second to none.
The winless New Zealand Breakers are coming off a spirited double-overtime loss to the Illawarra Hawks on Friday Night. They are now 0 and 4, but have been pretty good in their last couple of games. Big man Yannick Wetzell was brilliant in the loss with 25 Points and 17 Rebounds.
Can Melbourne United put up a similar performance as they did against the Kings on Thursday Night, or will the New Zealand Breakers finally get their first win?
This should be a cracking NBL Match on NBL Sunday, and here are some NBL Tips and NBL Predictions.

Melbourne United have won nine of the last ten matches against the New Zealand Breakers and get them at a good time. The Breakers are coming off an intense double-overtime loss to the Illawarra Hawks on Friday Night and may find it tough to back it up in such a short period.
The Melbourne United win against the Sydney Kings is difficult to read too much into as the Kings were simply not on. However, United did play intense defence in that match and may bring the same intensity for this clash with the Breakers.
Melbourne United should get this one done at home.
