LM vs TP Dream11: Two teams looking to move up the table will clash in the 2020 Nicaragua Basketball League regular season as Leones de Managua play hosts to Tipitapa Basketball Club on early Friday morning (IST).
Managua are one of the teams who are eying the top spot in the table, which is currently occupied by Costa Caribe Basketball Club. The leaders have a 13-2 return on the season while de Managua are down at 5th on the table with 11 wins and 3 defeats from 14 rounds. So this is Managua's game-in-hand and they know if they win this match, they will be closing the gap down on Caribe to just two games, which is more than manageable. Also, the way Managua played in the last match, beating Rivas Basketball Club 99-59 in what was a totally one-sided game right from the beginning, they should fancy their chances. It was the sixth win for them in the last seven games and 10th in the last 12 matches.
Basketball Club Tipitapa, on the other hand, are coming into this game on the back of a 87-77 defeat in the last game against Juigalpa Basketball Club. That result ended a three-match winning run for them and now they are a huge four-game behind the top spot. That defeat was more painful for the fact that it came against a team who are worse off than them on the table. As things stand, they are 8th on the points table with 9 wins and five defeats from 14 rounds.

Despite three spots separating both these teams going into this match, Leones de Managua have just a two-game advantage over their next opponent going into this match. That's why this is an important game for Managua, and also for Tipitapa who know a win will cut the deficit down to just a game between these two teams. But Managua are at home where they have a very good record, while Basketball Club Tipitapa tend to suffer more defeats on the road than in front of the home fans. So in this Dream11 Fantasy Basketball, we are backing Leones de Managua to win the game.
