AKH Vs MWJ Dream11 Team Overview, Match Centre And Probable Playing 5: Two sides without a league in the win take on each other in sight of their opening points
They finished last season in bottom place, a position which was made their home all season long with team managing to scrape its way to a frugal two wins all season long. It was form which didn’t exude much confidence from Manawatu Jets when they stepped out to square off against Otago Jets in their opening fixture of the 2020 sortie of the marquee league.
And while the side pulled off a display no one had fathomed with the side pushing Otago all the way in their closely contested 104-100 defeat, the fact that the side was left bereft of a win took precedence. However, they’ll be taking away more positive points from that rigorous display than negative ones, a showing which the side will be looking to emulate this Saturday.
Elsewhere. Auckland Huskies had to endure defeat in their opening tie of the National Basketball League as well with the side doling out an abject and appalling show of attacking basketball. The 110-72 defeat to Canterbury was a harrowing way to make a foray into the ongoing season, a performance which saw them being completely outplayed and outshined in all the dockets.
AKH Vs MWJ Match Prediction
After that abysmal attacking display, Manawatu Jets is just the side Auckland Huskies would have wanted to come across. The side will finally be able to arrest its tanking skewed form infront of a paper thin defence today.
This encounter will be a closely contested one, a clash we envisage heading in Manawatu Jets favour owing to their repertoire of attacking names.

AKH Vs MWJ Dream11 Picks
Haize Walker from Manawatu Jets will be our cheap pick for the imminent encounter. At just 7.5 credits, the point guard makes for an enacting pick, someone who is capable of utilising his ripper of a ball handling skill set to control the centre of the court.
Jayden Bezzant showed the last time around that he has the sprawling attributes to act as the mainstay of his side’s attacking docket. With a gargantuan 30 point performance, he spruced his side’s attacking ambit, shooting triples from the midrange region with ease as he ripped the opposition into shreds.
7 points, 3 assists and 4 rebounds for Taine Murray will see become the first name to grace our side from Auckland Huskies after his well rounded display in the side’s bygone clash.
On a day where nothing went his side’s way, Nathan Wilson showed that he’s more than adept at running the show for his side. The small forward from Auckland not only came up with a staggering 10 points but was able to pull off integral rebounds as well as he latched onto the second chance points.
He’s partnered by Ana Haku who pulled off the 9 points and 3 rebounds in the same encounter with the two latching onto the second chance points to send down offhand points.
While his 15 point performance was more than enough to make Tohi Smith-Milner our pick from Auckland Huskies, the fact that he did them without any assistance saw us repose our full faith in him for the day’s clash.
Jaylen Gerrand with the 9 points and 4 rebounds in the same fixture make him our partner for the forthcoming encounter while Jets on the other hand find representation in the imperious Tom Vodanovich who pulled off a staggering 28-14 double-double.
His 30 points in the previous outing will see Bezzant be our star player while Tohi is the vice-captain.
