SH Vs XFT Dream 11 Prediction: Shandong Heroes Vs Xinjiang Flying Tigers Second spot sealed in Xinjiang’s favour after their win the last time around.
On a five game winning spree with the side having tasted defeat just the once since the league has returned, Xinjiang’s spectacular juggernaut sees them all but having asserted second place in CBA 2019-20 for themselves. With 32 wins, the side are four wins clear of second placed Beijing Ducks, a deficit unlikely to be wiped out given the form the side is in.
Oppositions have had no answer to the remarkable form Xinjian find themselves in with the club doling out a trouncing to whoever has stepped out to square off against them. The team has been a real handful for teams with their profound attacking contingent blowing teams apart, a narrative brought to the fore in their emphatic 104-86 win the last time around.
This is last team Shandong Heroes would have wanted to take on after having managed to have roped in their way an elusive win the last time around. While the side is bound to be instilled with colossal an vital momentum from that win, it wont be enough to propel them to a win against one of the most pristine sides in the league.
Shandong have been left bereaved in the league due to their beleaguered defence. Its seen them be bludgeoned on ample occasions with the side failing to occult attacking plays transpired in their direction, a plight which will see them be handed out a comprehensive decimation by a ruthless attacking team.

Dream 11 Picks
Lingxu Zeng will be inducted into our Dream 11 side as the point guard for the imminent encounter. The player has played out the role of point guard to perfection for his side, someone whose scrimmages have not only translated into points for the side but have seen the player come up with layups as well, something well documented in his 12-10 double-double the last time around.
Qi Lin from the second placed club will be instilled in our Dream 11 side as the shooting guard for the impending clash. The player showed why he’s such a tough nut to crack with the player embroiling the opposition in a fracas as he foraged his way to a 16 point shooitng presentation from the deep.
We are partnering the Xinjiang man up with Caiyu Tang who was responsible for 9 points in the same encounter as the two intertwined their expansive skill set to see their endeavours bring with them the sweet fruits of hardwork. Shandong Heroes will also feature a player for us in this ambit of our Dream 11 side with us reposing faith in Feizuo Hou who managed to accrue 9 points in the last tie
Chen Peidong is the only chance Shandong Heroes have of emerging as heroes for rest of the league and raking up an improbable win for the side. The power forward pulled off an incredible 23 point performance in his foregone contest, a subliminal performance which saw him leave the opposition barking up the wrong team when trying to defend against him.
25 points and 12 rebounds the last time around saw Zhou Qi rope his way yet another double-double. He’s dropped double-doubles in each tie since the league has returned, performances on whose behest the club has managed to take on the identity of such a daunting and formidable unit.
Ziming Fan will be his partner for the imminent tie after he pulled off the 11 points for the side in the same clash, a showing which saw him act as the perfect partner to Qi. Heroes elsewhere see us opt for the pick of Zhu Rongzhen with the player being a tenacious name, someone capable of stringing his way rebounds and deflections to help win the battle of the boards for the side.
The consummate ease with which he’s rolled his way the double-doubles see us opt for Qi as the star player while Zeng is the vice-captain.
