SH vs SBW Dream 11 Prediction: Sichuan look to hand out a second straight defeat to Shandong this week.
These two played each other previously in the CBA 2019-20 and when they take on each other once again in the space of a few days, either side will be well versed and familiar with each other. Back on the court to face off against each other in their second striahgt game between each other, Shandong Heroes and Sichuan Blue Whales are set to square off in an edfe of the seat thriller today.
Defeating Shandong 79-68 the last time these two sides met, Sichaun mustered up a much needed second win in four encounters. The win took them to 11 th place, helping arrest the side’s inconsistent form this season, a performance they’ll be quietly confident of emulating today.
It’s a narrative the side is capable of peddling out not only courtesy of their calibre but more so due to Shandong’s regressing form. Losing three ties in succession, Shandong are slowly starting to lose relevance in the competition, a team which has hardly looked cut out for the league’s restart to sit in an agonising 17th spot at the moment.
We should have a riveting affair on our hands today but one which should manage to swing by in Sichuan’s favour today. Shandong have offered absolutely nothing, a team which has all season long put in maligned performances born out of their misdemeanour and misconduct.

SH vs SBW Dream 11 Prediction
SH vs SBW Dream 11 Point Guard
There was no way we were going to let go of Zhang Hui from Shandong Heroes for today’s impending encounter. With 7 points and 5 rebounds the last time around, the player showed his versatile skill set, one we couldn’t let go at a measly price tag of just 5.5 credits.
SH vs SBW Dream 11 Shooting Guard
The 11 points, 5 assists and 5 rebounds to go with them saw Ruheng Wang make a last ditch effort the last time these two met to help Shandong put the breaks on their wavering form. The player left no stone unturned, dominating his authority in all facets to show why he’s such a vital name for the side.
Sichuan on the other hand will finally see their first name be nailed down by us with us venturing for the enigmatic Jing Hanyi after his 9 points and 6 rebounds in the bygone outing.
SH vs SBW Dream 11 Small Forward
He finds company in the enterprising Wang Zhengbo, two names who are set to make things extremely despondent for a paper thin Shandong attack as they move in unison to intertwine right outside the circle and shoot three pointers.
SH vs SBW Dream 11 Power Forward
His 6 defensive rebounds were pivotal to Sichuan just about scramming their way to a win the last time these two took on each other. The showing ensured that Sichuan were able to transpire quick break points with ease past Shandong, a quirky skill set which sees us opt for Zhenliang Yuan from the side.
Shandong will on the other hand see Hanlin Tao be our pick with the player subjecting his side to an electric 19-18 double-double in the foregone encounter, a performance worthy of his pick for the day.
SH vs SBW Dream 11 Centre
A gargantuan wordclass effort of 31 points was partnered by the 10 rebounds as well, a showing so complete in nature that Yuanyu Li was the first name on our minds when we began crafting our Dream 11 team for the day. He’s partnered by Gang Yu who delivered 8 points and rebounds in the same encounter, a partnership regarded as one of the most pristine centre partnerships in the league.
