NZBL Projections, Stats & Analysis

Hawk’s offense is on fire

The Hawk’s offense has been brilliant and they have constantly passed 100 points mark lately, which has been overwhelming for most teams. This is in contrast with their earlier wins when they were scoring in the 70s and still winning. The scoring has been highly balanced without any clear enforcer in sight whereas Hyrum Harris has led both the rebounding and assists-making efforts.

Giants have been pumping it up too

The Giants have been doing their job well too, and their ability to adjust to different game types is indeed impressive. Nelson has been able to draw big nights from multiple players. Trey Mourning, Jarrod West, Sam Thompson, and Samuel Dempster have emerged as the major offensive threats Trey Mourning leads in rebounds with around 9 a game whereas Jarrod West leads in assists with around 7 a game.
