CAR vs ON Dream11 Team Overview, Match Centre And Probable Playing 5: Season fast heading towards a blockage for bottom placed Canterbury Rams.
No matter what they do, Canterbury Rams just cant get to taste a win at the moment. The 101-98 defeat to Manawatu Jets yesterday was the perfect testament to the club’s current flabbergasting predicament with the side failing to come out of a tie with a win despite thrusting everything they had into the contest.
While the fight and character was pleasant to see, the fact that it resulted into nothing is what matters at the end of the day for a club embroiled in a quagmire. The defeat was the club’s fifth successive defeat on the stretch, results which leave the side firmly hammered down in bottom spot with time running out and running out fast for the side.
This is the ideal side for Otago Nuggets to face off against today as the side look to overturn their defeat to the league leaders the last time around. The side fell short by the smallest of margins with the singular point leaving them ruing what could have been as the side let slip in a crucial basket in the culminating stages to be defeated 106-105.
CAR vs ON Dream11 Probable Winner
The attacking ambit has been the sole reason for Canterbury’s decline in the league with the side faltering in their task of scrounging through points. It’s a plight which will result in their downtick once again with the team being thumped by a daunting Otago Nuggets team on an upward spiral.

CAR vs ON Dream11 Picks
His side’s highest scorer in the league, Taylor Britt showed why he’s been handed over the ball whenever his side have needed to come up with points. The Canterbury Rams man pulled off yet another consistent performance with 25 points, 9 assists and 7 rebounds the last time around, a performance which paid testament to his expansive skill set.
Tom Cowie will be partnering him up as our cheap pick for the day while we found it befitting to make Jarrod Kenny our first pick from Otago Nuggets for today’s scrimmage. Its down to the 20 points he put on show against the league leaders, a performance massively escalated in stature owing to the level of the opposition it came against.
Joran Ngatai was snagged by us for Otago Nuggets first fixture in the league and the small forward has never left the sanctum of our side ever since. His august company is warranted owing to the manner in which he’s set the league alight with his exemplary performances when it comes to converting field points.
On the other hand, a sparkling double-double from Quintin Bailey yesterday sees us make him our pick from the last placed side. The player was responsible for keeping his side in thee faceoff right till the end yesterday with his points inside the paint and quick break points helping turnover a despondent defence.
9 points and 9 assists in his previous clash see us opt for Josh Aitcheson as our power forward for the impending clash. He’s capable of mincing side’s defensively and leaving attacking names miffed owing to his impediments in the attacking soirees sent down his way,
A stunning and spectacular performance comprising of 24 points and 8 rebounds from the hands of Jordan Hunt see us make him our side’s centre for this one. The player is up against a horrid defence, one he’ll find way too easy to infringe to reel in his way the rebounds and deflections.
We are partnering him up with the titillating Matthew Bardwely who at just 4.5 credits and 18 points in the same clash might just end up offering the most exceptional value today.
Jordan’s nonchalant ease in cantering his presence in both the ambits of the game see him captain our side while Hunt is the vice-captain.
