Southland Sharks has lost four of their six games and are struggling to get going so far, they are placed third-last(8 out of 10). On the other hand, Nelson Giants have won five of the eight games, displaying great defense, and are placed in the third position. The two teams are in contrasting positions. Who will prevail?

NZBL Projections, Stats & Analysis

Third from the bottom, third from the top, can Sharks hop?

The Sharks have lost three games in a row. In two of the first three games, they were amazing on the offensive end. However, they have recently lost their grip on both ends of the floor. Dominique Kelman-Poto has been a decent scorer and rebounder but the team’s overall offense has been decent at best. In the last game, the team shot below 40% once again and that has been the biggest problem so far in this season. Sharks have allowed the third-most points in the league so when your offense is not on the mark, that certainly doesn’t help.

On the other hand, the Giants have one of the best defensive teams in the league, allowing second-least points, and their defense is certainly tough. This is why the Giants are getting away with wins despite being the third-worst offensive team in the league. Can they continue their defensive prowess while improving offensively?
