BD vs ZL Fantasy Team Prediction: Both the teams step out to clash heads once again for the second time in the space of a week.
On a four game losing spree ahead of their showdown against Zhejiang Lions, nothing but a remarkable and charismatic show of pluck and grit was going to rescue a win for Beijing Ducks. In what was touted to be a foregone conclusion, Beijing Ducks not only silenced their naysayers but showed that they are well alive and kicking in CBA 2020-21.
In one of the most hotly contested and competitive scrimmages of this season, Beijing Ducks showed fight and character in abundance to squirm their way to a win. Making amends for their horrendous defeats, the Ducks managed to manoeuvre their way to a 101-99, a triumph born out of immense resolve and valour.
The fight and character the side showcased in that tie are traits the club knows it will need to emulate today as well. When it takes on Zhejiang Lions for the second time in a row, the Ducks will be looking to dole out a spitting image of their bygone win come this Thursday.
While the Lions were putdown in that matchup, we envisage them coming back roaring today. In this brawl between the Lions’ attack and the Ducks’ defence, Lions’ ability to shoot across the field should see them avenge their 100-99 defeat.

Sun Minghui’s electric performance the last time these two sides met almost saw him swing the clash his side’s way. His calibre was visible in abundance as he ended up top scoring for his side with a gargantuan 33 point display.
Jonathan Gibson didn’t have the best of days in that clash but the Ducks man still managed to record 9 points to see him retain his place in our side.
Where the Ducks managed to fulfil their quest of staving the Lions’ attacking threat, one player they had no answer to was Shuo Fang. He ran rings around them, dropping 30 points and 8 assists, a showing which makes him an instant pick for us.
Zhu Junlong was off color in that encounter but he’s made a name for himself owing to his ability to backtrack and line up the offhanded shots for his team.
Jinxiao Li will partner him up for the encounter, a player who has made the most of his frugal minutes on the court to drop floating jump shots. The Ducks on the other hand will see us immense in the services of Ziming Fan after his won the battle of the board for his side to accrue 7 boards.
Packing a real punch for the Ducks in that encounter, Justin Hamilton’s expansive 25 points were accumulated due to his windmills, reverse scoops and spin and slams. The Lions elsewhere will see us engage in the services of the gusty and tenacious Miroslav Radujlica after he lit the court with a robust 23 point, 9 rebound showing.
Sun’s 33-13 double-double sees him once again be our star player while Miroslav is the pro player.
Sun, Gibson, Fang, Junlong, Fan, Li, Miroslav, Hamilton.
