MWJ vs AT Dream11: As most famous men’s basketball leagues get wrapped up, we will dive into the New Zealand Basketball League, which is still in the early parts. In this league, games are dispersed and there are times that a couple of games are featured in a week. And in this game, Manawatu Jets will host Auckland Tuatara.
Manawatu Jets are in the last place in the standings and they have won just one of their seven games, the only team yet to achieve two wins so far. In their last game, they lost to this very Auckland Tuatara team 59:87. On the other hand, the Manawatu Jets are number one in the league and they have won an incredible seven out of nine games so far. However, they lost their last game 86:88 against the Taranaki Mountain Airs
Host: Manawatu Jets
Visitors: Auckland Tuatara
Match Timing: 12 June, @ 08:30 AM (+05:30 UTC)
Venue: Central Energy Trust Arena
These Jets are not flowing
The Manawatu Jets have had a terrible season and they have been beaten badly during most games. The Jets rank second-worst in points per game with 74.3 whereas their defense allows 87.7 points per game, which is the third-worst. The Jets are the second-best offensive rebounding team so it means that they need to click on their initial shots. Shane Temara leads the team in scoring with around 17 a game whereas Robert Crawford averages around 16. John Bohannon leads all rebounders with 14 a game.
Tuatara are dominating the scene
Auckland is number one in points per game(not a surprise) with around 89 a game while they have the best defense, limiting teams to around 74 a game. Again, unsurprisingly, they are the best rebounding team with more than 41 a game. Again, they have led the league in assists per game. Chris Johnson leads the team in scoring and rebounding, whereas Robert Leo is right behind him in both metrics. Both with 15+ Points and 10+ Rebounds. Siler Schneider leads the team in assists per game with 4.4.
Johnson had a terrible 2/13 night but he can deal much more damage. I expect 15+ points and 12+ rebounds here. He can be selected as a Star/Pro Player in the Dream 11 Prediction scenario.
Robert made seven of his 12 shots. I believe he will be in 14-19 points range.
Robert made around 60% of his shots in the last game and he is incredible. I believe he will be in 15+ points and 10+ rebounds range.
