Vector Arena appears to be firming as the likely base for the Sky City Breakers home playoffs.

The side has four regular season games remaining in the ANBL and hold a two game winning buffer at the top of the competition ladder.

General Manager Richard Clarke has previously left the door open on playing playoff games at the bigger venue as opposed to their regular home of the North Shore Events Centre.

Coach Andrej Lemanis says he has no qualms with Vector being their base for the business end.

"One of the reasons we went to play three games there during the year so that as a team we were familiar with the environment and comfortable with the surroundings so from the team's perspective we've got no problems playing there.''

The Breakers meet the Adelaide 36ers away on Saturday night.
