The Perth Wildcats have touched down in Launceston and are ready to return to winning form against the New Zealand Breakers on Tuesday night.
The two teams will clash in the first game of the Breakers' six-week home stint at the Silverdome.
Perth forward Jesse Wagstaff said the team wasn't fazed by the nine-game streak-snapping loss to the Adelaide 36ers on Saturday night.
"I don't think it's complacency, it takes a lot of hard work to win in this league night in, night out ... like I said it's not a wake-up call, hopefully we'll come back in the next one," he said.
For many Wildcats players, this will be their first game at the Silverdome.
"At the end of the day, it's two rings and a basketball with a couple of lines on the floor - you adjust," Wagstaff said.
"You train at the same venue all the time but you play at a variety of venues throughout the year ... New Zealand are in the same boat."

The 34-year-old spent last season under the watchful eye of inaugural Tasmania JackJumpers coach Scott Roth, who was assistant coach of the Wildcats before moving south.
"He's a great bloke and he deserved that shot, I think he'll do a great job down here," Wagstaff said.
"Obviously he's got to get an entire organisation off the ground and get a whole new squad in and I'm excited to see what he can do.
"He brings a wealth of experience, he's coached all around the world with incredible players."
While teammate Todd Blanchfield only spent a couple of months with Roth after joining Perth from the Illawarra Hawks, he was full of praise for the well-travelled coach.
I worked with him a lot before and after training and the knowledge he brings from overseas - you could pick his brain all dayTodd Blanchfield on JackJumpers coach Scott Roth
"I worked with him a lot before and after training and the knowledge he brings from overseas - you could pick his brain all day," Blanchfield said.
The 29-year-old forward was also excited to see the NBL expand not only with the addition of the JackJumpers, but the increase of regular season games to 36.
"I know the rapport Tasmania has with basketball [and] there's obviously some fantastic players still playing in the league," Blanchfield said.
"For me, being in the league a long time, it's going to be a big change.
"It's going to be good and a lot of fun [and] the group they're going to put together is going to be very competitive and having that extra team will really boost the league."
