AT vs ON Dream11: Many famous basketball leagues are wrapping up, but then some of these are still in their nascent stages or in the midway point. Philippines Basketball League and Dominican League are some examples. Whereas, same goes for New Zealand Basketball League. And in this game, Auckland Tuatara will take on Otago Nuggets.

NZBL Projections, Stats & Analysis

Auckland needs to regroup

Tuatara has lost two close games in a row and both of those times, their defense wasn’t in the usual rhythm. In the last game, they were beaten on boards with the Jets grabbing 19 on the offensive end compared to 14 by Tuatara. Chris Johnson has averaged 20+ points and 10+ rebounds a game, leading the team in both categories. Meanwhile, Robert Loe has been compiling 20+ points as well. They are also good in terms of moving the ball around and had 21 assists in the last game.

Otago also needs momentum

The Nuggets’ offense isn’t moving as it was earlier and their defense has been in tatters too. They begin the season with 5 wins and 2 losses, so they aren’t set back by long, and can still recover. Keith Williams and Nikau McCollough continue to be 15+ points scorers. Sam Timmins needs to be more aggressive on the rebounding end after he had compiled 10+ regularly earlier. Tahreje McCall continues to lead the team in assists.
