Three New Zealand Breakers players are amongst the early leaders in the Australian NBL All-Star team voting.

Cedric Jackson is currently second in the South - which includes players from the Breakers, Perth Wildcats, Adelaide 36ers and Melbourne Tigers - behind Wildcats point-guard Kevin Lisch and third in the overall voting.

Tom Abercrombie is close behind Jackson in third, fourth overall, and Mika Vukona sits in 10th spot in the South.

The starting five for the North and South teams are selected by the fan vote with five reserves per team to be chosen by the league.

The All-Star game is scheduled for December 22 at the Adelaide Arena and will also include a dunk contest, three-point shoot-out and a celebrity and legends 3x3 game.

The North team will be made up of players from the Cairns Taipans, Townsville Crocodiles, Sydney Kings and Wollongong Hawks. Taipans forward Cam Tragardh currently leads all contenders.

Fans can vote at nbl.com.au and voting closes in early December.

Opinion poll

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
