GAL vs BNG Dream11: Turkmenistan Basketball League returns on Dream11 after a brief hiatus with the first game set to be played between current table-topper Binagyar Basketball Club and Galkan Basketball on Sunday morning (IST).
Binagyar are on fire at the moment. Not only they lead the league table, but they are also on the best run in the league, not losing a game of basketball since January 4 when Talyp Basketball shocked them 101-99 for an unlikely result. Since then, Binagyar have won 11 consecutive games and will be eying to stretch the current run by one more game when Galkan host them on Sunday.
Galkan can certainly do with a positive result here following a run of three consecutive defeats. That run of result makes their season record even more miserable at 5 wins and 10 defeats from 15 games.
Galkan | Binagyar
Games: 15 | 16
Wins: 05 | 15
Defeats: 10 | 01
Total Points scored: 1073 | 1423
Points conceded: 1070 | 1120

As mentioned, in our fantasy basketball prediction above, both teams are heading in the complete opposite direction. While Binagyar are the mountain in this league every other team looking to climb, while Galkan are sliding down to South losing games and slipping further away from the playoff spots. They need to snap this slide and get their season back on track, and though that's very much doable for them we can't see this game becoming a watershed moment in their season.
