Description: BD Vs GST Dream11 Team Overview, Match Centre And Probable Playing 5: With a lead in their hands, Guangdong look to venture into the glistening showpiece final today
They were touted to not only make their way into the summit clash of CBA 2019-20 but also to go one step further and end up with the glistening trophy under their arms. And Guangdong Southern Tigers have left no stone unturned to repose the faith earmarked in them until now with the side yet to be beaten ever since the league’s restart.
The narrative hands them a crucial 1-0 lead when heading into today’s double-header against Beijing Ducks. However, for the first time in two months, the league leaders will be wary and cautious when taking to the middle with Beijing Ducks emerging as the first side over that period to test the side and push them all the way.
While Guangdong ended up winning in the first round of the first semi-final between the two, the fact that the win came by only two points will have sent jitters through the side. The team’s guile and mettle was put to the sword, a clash where Guangdong had to dwell into their repertoire of resources to just about squirm their way unscathed on the day.
BD Vs GST Dream11 Probable Winner
They might have failed in their quest of going past the finishing line but Beijing Ducks’ icnredile fight and character won hearts. In what was a performance to write home about, the fourth placed side covered itself in glory with an extremely pleasing to the eye display.
It’s a performance they’ll be looking to dole a spitting image of today and regale us in a humdinger akin to the one we were revelled in the last time these two took to the league. However, the side will ultimately falter in a bid to restore parity in the series with Guangdong’s attacking juggernaut set to leave Ducks in a jeopardy.

Dream 11 Picks
He’s done it all season long and Jeremy Lin showed that he can pull off a ravishing performance against the best of the best as well. With 23 points, 10 assists and 8 rebounds against the league leaders the last time around, the enigmatic point guard makes for too good an option to let slip out of our hands.
Guangdong Southern Tigers will see Xu Jie be reposed faith in by us with the player’s demeanour helping rope in 10 crucial points that last time these two went at loggerheads.
His 28 point showing against Guangdong saw Shuo Fang seal his berth in Beijing Ducks’ folklore. The shooting guard was at his imperious best as he shot a high plus triple shooting conversion rate, one which saw him come up with clutch points when the two squared off against each other in the first round.
Xiaohui Wang will be his partner for the impending outing after a neat 5 points on the day saw him more than justify his measly 6 credit price tag.
At the end of the day, Guangdong were left thanking Sonny Weems for taking them a step closer towards making it into the final of CBA 2019-20. With a staggering 40-18 double-double, he not only won the tie for his side but gave a warning of intent as well as he stamped his intentions of guiding his side to a title winning season.
Zhou Peng was always going to be his partner for the scrimmage after dropping 17 points and 7 rebounds as he utilised the zones created by Weems to send down open triples.
He’s gotten frugal chances on the court until now both Du Runwang could end up getting an elevated role for Guangdong given the gruelling schedule. And he’s shown his affinity for ushering in the rebounds and steals whenever he’s been a part of the side’s shooting arounds to see us opt for the power forward.
9 points for Taruike Jianiyou in the last skirmish will see the Ducks centre make a foray into our Dream 11 unit with his reverse scoops and spin and slams.
The way with which he’s coaxed the field points to his name see Weems be our star player while Lin is the pro player.
