NZBL Projections, Stats & Analysis

Jets: Improved offense

Earlier in the season, the Jets were not doing well on the offensive end but lately, they have been able to do so on the backs of Zane Nadjawi and Robert Crawford, both scrapping 20+ points continuously. John Bohannon has been the leading rebounder and playmaker, being 10+ and 6+ mark respectively for most parts.

Bulls: Defense is well, the offense is a bit questionable
While the Bulls’ defense has been great, their offense has let them down. They don’t have the depth required at times and look down and out. Corey Webster who returned from national duty has compiled 20+ points nights constantly. Leon Henry has been a strong rebounder, averaging 10+ whereas Webster has also given great playmaking.
