HBH vs AT Dream11: The New Zealand Basketball League is developing as of now but unlike the NBA, the schedule is not a back-to-back scenario or a bunch of games stacked together. The games are spread around and teams played twice in seven days at best. And in one of those scenarios, the Hawke Bay Hawks will host the Auckland Tuatara.
These are two of the best teams record-wise. Hawks have won five out of seven games whereas Auckland has won six of their seven games. Tuatara won their last game 88:76 as Takiula Fahrensohn nabbed 20 points. On the other hand, the Hawks won their last match 82:73 as Tajuan Agee had a 19 points and 10 rebounds double-double. Can the Hawks tie their record with the Auckland squad?
