The Tall Blacks have opened the Chinese leg of their World Cup buildup tour with a 75-66 victory over Cameroon tonight.

After splitting a pair of games against South Korea in Seoul, coach Nenad Vucinic would have been pleased to see his side hit winning form at the start of back-to-back tournaments in China.

The New Zealanders will conclude the first tournament with games against Ivory Coast and Chinese league club Guangdong.

The Tall Blacks are en route to Spain for the World Cup where they will go up against the USA, Turkey, Ukraine, Finland and the Dominican Republic in pool play in Bilbao.

How do you expect the Breakers to perform in this season's Australian NBL?

Last season was a blip, they'll be champions once again

They'll go close to another title, beaten finalists I'd say

Playoffs for sure, but can't see them going any further

Not too excited, they'll miss the playoffs again
