New Zealand Breakers' guard Daryl Corletto has taken out the player of the week award for Round 16 of the ANBL Championship.

Corletto put on a shooting exhibition in the Breakers' 95-76 win over the Sydney Kings on Thursday night.

The veteran of more than 300 NBL games hit 6-of-8 three-pointers and 8-of-11 from the field on his way to 22 points as the Breakers improved their home record to 8-1.

Corletto added 11 points in the 91-74 road win over Wollongong, taking New Zealand to 17-3 at the top of the ANBL ladder.

Sydney Kings' big man Ian Crosswhite continued his impressive form, scoring 22 points on 9-of-12 shooting and 10 rebounds in the loss to New Zealand, with teammate Ben Madgen adding 20 points (8-of-14).

Adris Deleon had 24 points and four steals in the Hawks loss to the Breakers, while Jason Cadee (24 points on 9-of-15FG) and David Johnson (25 points and 10 rebounds) led from the front in Adelaide's loss to Melbourne.

Tigers' duo Seth Scott and Jonny Flynn, Cairns star Cam Tragardh and the Breakers' Thomas Abercrombie were also in the mix.

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
