NMK Vs LFL Dream11 Team Overview, Match Centre And Probable Playing 5: Tongxi punching above their weight at the moment after an apathy filled start to the restart
When Nanjing Tongxi stepped onto the court for the first time in three months as CBA 2019-20 restarted after a three months break, nothing went the side’s way. Everyone was quick to right them off with the side delivering two defeats on the bounce in the league’s restart, results which didn’t bode well for the side’s sojourn in the second stage.
When things are falling apart around you and the roof comes crashing on your head, the only thing you can do is introspect and try to overhaul your appalling form. And Tongxi did exactly that with the side clawing its way out of the soup it found itself in with the team registering three wins on the spin to silence their naysayers in style.
All the way upto 6th place in the league standings after scramming their way to a 97-95 win over Bayi Rockets, Tongxi will be looking to keep their spree going when they take on Lions today. The side’s resurgence sees the scales titled in their favour, a team which will be quietly confident of utilising its resilient defence to accrue a fourth win in succession.
Although Lions pulled off a subliminal 109-81 win the last time around over Qingdao, we just don’t see that converting into a win today as well. The side has endured a start and stop sortie all season long, one which has placated their chances of emerging as real challengers.

NMK Vs LFL Dream11 Picks
55 points followed up by a stunning 49 point performance meant Joe Young had to become the first player to grace the land of our Dream 11 side. He’s been at the centrestage of the side’s resurgence in the league, a player who showings have entailed the assists and rebounds as well to see us make him our first pick for the day.
Shiyan Gao will on the other hand be our pick from Lions, a player capable of controlling the centre of the court with his quick ball movements and rotations.
Coaxing his way the 6 points the last time around, Jinghia Je will be partnered by Qiao Wenhan who is capable of opening the zone up for the side and shooting down triples from the deep for the side.
The only reason Lions have managed to pull off two wins in three encounters has been down to the sprawling skill set of O.J. Mayo. He’s emerged as the source of everything hat has gone right for the side with his profound attributers resulting in the 19 points, 6 assists and 4 rebounds for the side in the previous fixture.
Tian-Ju He shot the 14 points and 8 rebounds for his team in the last encounter, a performance which allowed Wang Huadong to deliver 6 points and 4 rebounds from the other end with the two manifesting an indomitable partnership to emerge as untenable names in the attacking slot.
His double-double of the 20 points, ones born out of his reverse scoops and spin and slams were partnered up by the 10 rebounds as well, one which saw him lunge onto the second chance points to make Dejun Han a must have selection for the encounter.
Young’s expansive shooting attributes see him be our star player while Mayo is the vice-captain.
