HBH vs MWJ Dream11 Prediction NZBL Live Fantasy Basketball Dream11 Team, Top Picks and Tips for Hawke’s Bay Hawks vs Manawatu Jets

Share

HBH vs MWJ Dream11: The New Zealand Basketball League is going to end in just a few weeks and it was another scintillating season, consisting of a lot of incredible battles. As we head towards the Playoffs, the Regular Season is in its last stages. In this game, the Hawke’s Bay Hawks will take on the Manawatu Jets.

The Hawke’s Bay Hawks were unable to keep up after a hot start, they had won seven of 10 games but since then, they have lost five out of six games, overall with 8 wins and 8 losses record. They come into this game after losing 80-107 to Wellington Saints despite a 24 points performance by Hyrum Harris.

The Manawatu Jets have been on the down throughout the season and they have suffered a lot recently, right now on a five-game losing streak, totally falling apart on both ends. Like the Hawks, the Jets also lost to the Saints in the last game 70:109 in another awful performance.

Home: Hawke’s Bay Hawks
Visitors: Otago Nuggets
Match Timing: 31 July, @ 10:30 AM (+05:30 UTC)
Venue: Pettigrew Green Arena

NZBL Projections, Stats & Analysis

Bay Hawke’s defense has been off the mark

While it is not like that Hawke’s offense has been any good, their defense has been rather too down. They have given up 100+ in two of the last three games, unable to get the job done for the most parts. The team hasn’t identified the major offensive options and the rotations have not been ample as they were earlier in the season when Derone Raukawa had it going. While the team lacks a viable playmaker, Jarod Kenny has been the leading assists maker. Hyrum Harris has led the team in rebounds

Jets in familiar struggles

The Jets have continued to sink this season and they have the worst defense in the league, allowing 90+ points during most junctures and their offense hasn’t been close. The team has lost five in a row twice this season and there are no more recovery windows now, with just one game remaining. Robert Crawford and Zane Nadjawi have been in the frontline of scoring. John Bohannon has led the team in rebounding with around 14 a game while also dishing around 4 assists a game.
