Tall Blacks too big, too strong for outmatched Hong Kong in Fiba qualifier - Jun 28, 2018

Paul Henare
In one way, at least, it was probably a good thing Steven Adams gave this Fiba basketball world cup qualifying window a rather large sidestep. Goodness only knows what the Oklahoma City Thunder's Kiwi giant would have done to an under-sized, out-matched Hong Kong outfit in his home town for this Thursday night matchup against the Tall Blacks. As it is, we'll never know because Adams elected to continue his international exile, and Paul Henare 's New Zealand men's team boxed on, as they have for Adams' entire senior career, without his intimidating presence. They certainly did not need another big body against an almost comically small Hong Kong side as they cantered to a 124-65 victory in front of nearly 3000 fans at Energy Events Centre in Rotorua. It was the exact same margin as November's clash up there, and lifted the Kiwis to a Group A-topping 4-1 record. The New Zealanders got pretty much what they wanted at the offensive end as they moved the ball well (38 assists on 46 made baskets), knocked down the three-ball at a ridiculously efficient clip (18 of 30, at 60 percent) and muscled up inside for the easy buckets when they cared to. Hong Kong, a hoops minnow in every sense of the word, had some bright moments on offence with their ability to create positive results off the dribble, but they were simply unable to contain the slick Tall Blacks on defence and were predictably pounded on the boards to the tune of 50-14. Coach Paul Henare might have been disappointed in one or two defensive breakdowns as they allowed the visitors a few too many open looks (a 41 percent field goal percentage was probably a shade too high for a side of their stature). Given the one-sided nature and the lack of intensity throughout, he'll know too well it's tough to knuckle down on D when you're up 40 and scoring at will the other end. However for the most part he got what he wanted out of a game that was very much a warmup to the main event, against China in Auckland on Sunday. "We've been trying to implement some new things offensively, and to run it against someone other than ourselves was good," he said afterwards. "And we've had guys like Jack Salt (208-C-96), Thomas Abercrombie (198-F-87, college: Washington St.), Ike (Isaac Fotu (203-F-93, college: Hawaii)) and Rob [Loe] who haven't played competitive hoops for a few months, so to get some game wind in the lungs was positive. "Also for them to see the ball go through the hoop a couple of times was good. It was good to tick those things off." He was also blown away by the assist number. "I don't think I've ever coached a game with assist numbers that high. We've been working on letting the ball do some work, but you've still got to put the ball in the hole to get those sort of numbers. We got some good looks, and the guys knocked them down. "Hopefully they can carry that confidence through to Sunday because we're going to need all that confidence then." The Tall Blacks were very good. They took care of what they had to, got out to a big lead early (32-17 after the opening quarter which became 63-35 by the half) and put this baby on ice a long, long way from the final buzzer. All 12 players scored as Henare shared the minutes throughout his 12-strong squad, none more impressively than experienced small forward Tom Abercrombie who stroked the ball beautifully to lead the Tall Blacks with 18 points on six-of-10 shooting, including five of six from beyond the arc. He exploded out of the blocks to put up a dozen of those points in the opening quarter. Robert Loe (211-F-91, college: St.Louis) also added 18 points at a dazzling clip (6/9 FG, 4/6 3PT) and Isaac Fotu had his way inside to tally 17 points (8/9 FG) and seven boards. But they all did their thing. Finn Delany (15 points, six boards), Jordan Ngatai (196-F-93, college: BYU-Hawaii, agency: MKP Management) (14 points on five-of-seven shooting) and Dion Prewster (195-G/F-90, college: SF Austin, agency: MKP Management) (11 points at a four-of-six clip) were the other primary contributors, while Shea Ili dished out 10 assists and veteran Mika Vukona (197-F-82) added four points, seven rebounds and five dimes off the pine. All too easy really. But a decent warmup for the big one on Sunday when the dangerous China side comes to Spark Arena looking for some revenge after the Tall Blacks beat them in their house in February.
