CAR Vs FKB Dream11 Team Overview, Match Centre And Probable Playing 5: Final day of the league stage encounters see Franklin Bulls scour for a spot in the semi-finals.
Wrenching out of their quagmire with an emphatic 92-65 over Taranaki Mountain Airs, Franklin Bulls threw themselves right back in the reckoning for a spot in the semi-finals of the national Basketball League. The win not only rekindled their chances of making it into the echelons of the league standings but also saw the side put the breaks on its two game losing spree.
And their couldn’t have been a more pristine manner for the side to claw its way out of the pickle it was in than a win over third placed Taranaki Mountain Airs. The side waded its way out of rough waters in exceptional manner with the win reducing the deficit between themselves and top spot to the solitary one win.
As they strive for a spot in the top 2 today and it with the sublime prize of making it into the semi-finals, Franklin Bulls couldn’t have augured for an easier outing. The side is stepping out to take on last placed Canterbury Rams, a side which is currently on a horrendous five game losing spin in the marquee competition.
With a frugal 3 wins in 13 games, Canterbury Rams have registered the last amount of wins in the league to befittingly find themselves in last place. Its been a horrendous sortie for them, one which will end up with another clobbering with their untenable defence being ripped into shreds by Franklin Bulls who are in dire need of a behemoth win.

CAR Vs FKB Dream11 Point Guard
With 7 rebounds the last time around, Franklin Bulls’ Jackson Stubbins showed why he’s such a pivotal name for the club. The point guard has controlled the centre of the court for his side, coming up with not only quick break points but winning the battle of the boards as well with his turnovers from possession.
The bottom placed club will find representation in Taylor Britt, a player who has waged a lone battle for the side all season long. He pulled off a stunning 12 points, 3 assists and 5 rebounds to his name in the previous clash, a showing which saw him assert himself as the focal point of his side’ s attacking soiree.
CAR Vs FKB Dream11 Shooting Guard
Franklin’s Nikau McCullough is absolutely going to love his time out on the court today. The shooting guard is up against a defence made up of tiring legs, a backline he’ll find extremely easy to quash and debunk as he lines up the triples from the deep and sends them down with panache.
CAR Vs FKB Dream11 Small Forward
He’ll be partnered up with the enterprising Everard Bartlett, a name who has seen the side flourished with an expansive skillset of shooting field points that has been extremely fruitful for the side. His penchant for the triples brought into fruition a behemoth 18 points in the bygone clash, a performance which makes him a must have pick for the outing.
Quintin Bailey will be snagged by us from Canterbury Rams with the player capable of latching onto the second chance points and accruing a string of rebounds to his name.
CAR Vs FKB Dream11 Power Forward
7 points, 3 assists and the 12 rebounds to go those attacking numbers the last time around see us make Sam Timmins from Franklin Bulls a must have pick for the imminent tie. The player went from strength to strength in his side’s outing against Auckland, a player who has been in fluent touch all across the course of the league.
CAR Vs FKB Dream11 Centre
16 points, 5 assists and the 6 rebounds in the same clash for Dominique Kelman-Potto saw him fulfil his side’s designs of registering a win in the last tie as the player sent down an enigmatic game winning display to see him become the second player on the bounce from the side.
Thomas Webley meanwhile be our pick from the other side with the player capable of sending down offhanded shots and reverse scoops.
Dominque’s ability to nonchalantly rake up the double-doubles see him be our star player while Sam is the vice-captain.
