Dream 11 Picks
He has never left the sanctum of our side this series and Shiyan Gao will once again be inducted in our side for this one. The point guard delivered 12 points for his side the last time around, ones which saw him utilise the board and come up with his points in the paint.
He’s going to be partnered up with Zhi Xuan Liu, someone who serves as our cheap pick for this tie. At a measly 5.5 credits and with 5 points the last time around, the shooting guard not only comes in as a filler but someone who helps free up funds to invest in elsewhere as well.
Guangdong Southern Tigers will see Rui Zhao become the first option for us from the side. Despite not being at his best the last time around, he still managed to shoot 16 points with the performance alluding towards his expansive expertise his dropping treys.
In a contest where Guangdong failed to be at their clinical best, Sonny Weems had no such qualms. Despite no assistance from his counterparts, the small forward was responsible for a wordclass double-double of 37 points, 10 assists and 8 rebounds as his display lone pushed the side towards three points of a win.
A massive reason Guangdong failed to win the last one was due to Zhou Peng not being able to deliver his field points. Well guarded, he was unable to break free of the shackles which engulfed his across the tie but that doesn’t deter us from opting for a name who has been in pristine touch across this season.
The most heavily indulged in facet of our side sees the third pick also be from Guangdong with the myriad Xinkai Wang wrapping up our triad of picks from the club.
Jianlian Yi will become the fourth player in a row to be inducted in our framework from Guangdong. He was responsible for 16 points and 10 rebounds in the second final, a guile filled performance laden to the brim with tenacity and fortitude.
Dejan Han showed why he’s been considered the focal point of his side’s attacks this term. The Liaoning man was responsible for yet another game winning performance with the player dropping 17 points inside the paint along with registering 10 attacking boards for the club as well.
His ability to control play in both attack and defence makes Weems a prudent pick as our star player while Han is the pro player.
