The Breakers have slipped a place in a logjammed ANBL table after a 73-66 loss to the Cairns Taipans.
Their hopes of a third straight road win were crushed as they struggled to find any consistency on offence.
Corey Webster scored a game-high 24 points, but heaved up 24 attempts and was successful from just nine.
Charles Jackson was the only other Breakers player to score in double digits.
The defending ANBL champions are now fourth on the table, with the same win-loss record as Illawarra on 11 and 7.
