The Tasmania JackJumpers have recorded a big win against the Cairns Taipans, 85-69, at the Cairns Convention Centre.
Scott Roth’s men were able to use a massive second quarter (24-9) to build a big lead that was too much for the Taipans to catch.
Josh Adams led the way for the JackJumpers, scoring 20 points along with five rebounds, Fabijan Krslovic (13 points, four rebounds) and Josh Magette (10 points, five rebounds, three assists) also had solid contributions to the win.
Stephen Zimmerman was Cairns’ best with 19 points, seven rebounds and four assists in a frustrating night at home.
