The Breakers' season has taken a step backwards after a stinging loss to the Cairns Taipans in the ANBL.

Just 48 hours after beating the Taipans in their best display of the season so far, the Breakers were brought down to earth with an 84-69 loss in Cairns.

The defeat has them 1-3 ahead of a difficult visit to the Sydney Kings on Friday.

Tai Webster, the best of the New Zealand outfit, scored 13 points. However, it was well below what was necessary to overcome the Taipans.
