AT vs ON Dream11: Another Basketball League is going to come to an end as the New Zealand Basketball League is in it Final stage. In the Finals of the season, Auckland Tuatara will take on the Otago Nuggets. This was a great season that saw some improvements from the league and an influx of USA-based talent. Auckland Tuatara has won two games in a row to make it to the Finals. They come into this game after defeating the Taranaki Airs 107:104 in an OT affair. On the other hand, the Otago Nuggets defeated the Nelson Giants 89:74 to make it to the deciding game. Host: Auckland Tuatara Visitors: Otago Nuggets Match Timing: 13 August, @ 01:00 PM (+05:30 UTC) Venue: North Harbour Stadium NZBL Projections, Stats & Analysis Auckland works a miracle Tuatara needed a miracle to advance ahead as they were down five points with less than nine seconds. First, they had a layup to go and then a miracle heave went in as a three-pointer to force the OT as Rob Loe played hero again. Loe has scored 20+ in two straight games and has been the biggest influencer on the offensive end lately. The team has a lot of size and can end up posing big threat for the Nuggets. Otago's defense bails them out The Nuggets have surely capitalized upon the elite defense they had built since the beginning of the season and it reaped awards during the Playoffs. They have not allowed teams to go past 80 many times and that makes them a surefire defense. Offensively, Billy Boyd has carried the load while Sam Timmins has been a double-double threat NZBL Scores, Fantasy Basketball Top Picks Rob Loe(AT) Points: 29 Rebounds: 18 Assists: 00 Steals: 05 Blocks: 01 Rob Loe has been on fire as a scorer, rebounder, and defender.
