Description: LFL Vs GST Dream11 Team Overview, Match Centre And Probable Playing 5: Guangdong stay true to their nature to register a pulsating win in the series opener
They tottered their way into the summit clash but once the main stage awaited, Guangdong Southern Tigers ensured they were back at their best. Dismissing all notions of the side struggling in the finals, Guangdong ended up thumping Liaoning in the first showdown to reassert their staunch stature in the league.
Taking on step towards winning a title many had accorded them with way back in the competition\, Guangdong are widely envisaged to seal the glistening trophy today. The 110-88 win the last time around saw them show everyone why they have lost just one tie since the league has returned, a juggernaut whose pan chance has been untenable for teams.
Although it would not be right to dismiss Liaoning without even a second thought given the side’s journey to this stage, we don’t envisage the club having in their repertoire. They were thoroughly outplayed the last time around with the side being asked to take a walk as they got cold feet when trying to muster up attacking plays.
LFL Vs GST Dream11 Probable Winner
Whilst we won’t discount Liaoning Flying Lions after their laggard display the last time around, the side is set to be resigned to accepting a defeat in this one. Guangdong are way too superior to them in all departments of the game, a side which will register a second win on the bounce in the series.

Dream 11 Picks
Shiyan Gao has always been a part of our Dream 11 team when his side has been in play and the point guard will once again be making a place in our side today. He’s someone capable of exploiting the zone and shooting triples for the club, a skill set which will see him be handed over the ball on ample occasions as he’s asked to come up with clutch points for the side.
He might only play as a substitute for his side but that doesn’t dissuade us from making Zhi Xuan Liu our pick for the impending encounter. Coming in at just 5.5 credits and assured of minutes on the court, the shooting guard is a must have pick given his ability to shoot from the deep.
Rui Zhao ended up delivering for Guangdong Southern Tigers when it mattered the most. The player pulled off an expansive 16 point, 9 assist and 6 rebound performance for his side the last time around, a worldclass display which saw him win the game for his side.
Liaoning just had no answer to Sonny Weems the last time around. The small forward ended up quashing any chance Liaoning had of winning the fixture as he sent down a sprawling 28 point performance on the day, a showing his saw him use his crossovers and handles to leave the opposition in a quandary.
Had it not been for Zhou Peng, Weems would have never been able to shoot that display. Peng moved his way inside the paint and open the zone for himself as he attracted defenders towards himself to give Weems vacant slots to line up the triples.
The most heavily indulged in facet of our side will also feature Xinkai Wang. At a frugal 5 credits and 9 points and 5 rebounds the last time around, the small forward makes for an undeniable pick for the impending encounter.
The fourth successive name from Guangdong will be that of Jianlian Yi. The power forward ended up giving his side the look of an unbreachable defence the last time around with his 9 rebounds being a testament to his ability to guard his post with consummate ease.
While not many are giving Liaoning a chance today, as long as the club has Dejun Han at its disposal, the team is in with a shout of registering parity in the series. He’s someone who has guided his side out of rough waters with ease with the player waging a lone battle the last time around as well for the side with a behemoth double-double.
His 16 points and 19 boards in the first game sees Han be our star player while Weems is our pro player.
