TNM vs MWJ Dream11: Since major leagues such as the NBA and the Spanish Basketball League have wrapped up, we have to depend upon the “under-the-radar” league such as the New Zealand Basketball League.

On the other hand, the Manawatu Jets have not been far away from the Airs, losing four out of the ten games.
