RAM vs BN Dream11: Two teams on the completely different trajectories will be meeting in the 2020 regular season of Nicaragua Basketball League when El Rama Basketball Club prepares to host Bonanza Basketball Club on early Saturday morning (IST).
Rama are near the foot of the table, sitting 18th on the power ranking at the moment. They arrive in this game on a three-game losing run last losing 70-91 at home to red-hot Costa Caribe. That result may have been expected by one and all, considering where the profile of both teams, there's no hiding the fact that Rama have failed to meet the desired level this season. They were expected to be in the playoff title race, they are actually, but they should have been closer to the playoff spots than they are right now. They are running out of both time and games, and know each negative result is taking them further away from their targets.
Bonanza Basketball may also feel hard-pressed to win this game, for they arrive in this match on the back of a 89-82 defeat at the hands of Nandaime Basketball. That was an unexpected result, but Bonanza are a top team and are expected to respond to that result. Bonanza are well-placed to qualify for the playoffs, as they sit 8th on the table with a 10-8 return on the season.
