Updated April 08, 2012 08:22:41

Perth Wildcats will meet the New Zealand Breakers in the NBL grand final series after downing the Gold Coast Blaze 88-67.

The victory gave the Wildcats a 2-1 series victory.

Shawn Redhage (19), Kevin Lisch (16) and Jesse Wagstaff (14) led the way for the five-time NBL champions.

Adris DeLeon (20) was the game's leading scorer but did not receive a great deal of scoring support from his team-mates.

After a competitive first quarter, which ended 29-23 the home side extended the lead to double figures at the break and continued to pull away in the second half.

The Wildcats will now play the Breakers in a best of three final series beginning in Auckland on Thursday.
