The Wollongong Hawks aim to slow NBL titleholders New Zealand to a crawl tomorrow at WIN Entertainment Centre.
While the Breakers like to play up-tempo, the Hawks are more suited to a walk-it-up contest.
Both teams will be playing their second game in a matter of days.
Wollongong took on the league-leading Wildcats in Perth last night, while the Breakers slumped to their fourth straight loss on Thursday night against Adelaide.
Hawks guard Rhys Martin said his side must avoid a "run and gun" game with the Breakers.
"I'd imagine fatigue might kick in a little bit on Sunday, depending on how the game goes," Martin said.
"If it's going to be a quick, up-and-down game, there's probably going to be fatigue, but if we can control the game and run when we want to, that will help us.
"We like to play a half-court game, and if we can run our offence and our defence and try to slow them down, then we won't get too fatigued."
The Breakers opened the season in style on their home court against the Hawks, overcoming a slow start to run away with a 19-point victory.
But that win has been their only bright spot.
Import Darnell Lazare has been sacked and Gary Wilkinson brought back to fill his spot. Wilkinson had seven points and three turnovers in his return against Adelaide.
Adelaide were up by 22 in the third quarter before the Breakers mounted a huge fightback to take the lead in the fourth period.
Former Hawks players Gary Ervin and Anthony Petrie hit clutch shots for the 36ers to seal a 96-93 win.
"To get down by 22 and find a way to have a chance to win it was probably the most pleasing part for us," Breakers coach Dean Vickerman said.
The other highlight for New Zealand was the performance of Reuben Te Rangi, who scored a career-high 22 points.
"I watched the game with a few of the boys, and the first half and second half were two different games," Martin said.
"The Breakers shot the ball really well in the second half - and so did Adelaide - and if the Breakers do that the whole game against us they'll be hard to beat.
"If we can disrupt them and get guys taking shots they're not used to taking, that'll help us.
"Their point guard [Kerron Johnson] was super quick and was getting in the lane way too easily, and it was a big game for the young kid Te Rangi when [Tom] Abercrombie got in foul trouble. It's going to be interesting if he can do that again to help them."
