STL Vs TPT Dream 11 Prediction: Lublin gets their start to life in the new season off a closely fought defeat.
Start Lublin gave it their all in their league opener of the 2020-21 edition of the Energa Basket Liga but at the end of the day, their best wasn’t enough.
The side slipped to a gruelling and tedious 70-65 defeat to Stargard, a result the side will be itching to overturn when they step out to the court today.
Falling short of the 2019-20 trophy by the measly margin of two points, Lublin knows that every game matters in the league. And while we are only in the opening exchanges of the new season, the side will be looking to imbed in place its first win as early as plausible as it looks to involve itself once again in the clamour for the glistening trophy.
While Lublin will not be downtrodden after their defeat with just a five-point difference seeing them fall shot, Torun, on the other hand, will be beating themselves for their performance. The 2019-20 season’s fifth-placed side was lacklustre and bleak in its 88-74 with the side failing to offer little in the way of attacking acumen on the day.
A failure to open the zone and shoot open triples along with a low conversion rate in game one left Torun beating themselves. And given the short turnaround time between games, the side has extremely little time to address the elephant in the room.
Its that lax display which will be a source of predicament for them today with us envisioning Lublin going onto register their opening win this season.

Dream 11 Picks
Marcin Wielunski of Torun showed that he can do more than just control the centre of the court for the side. His innate ability to line up the triples saw him pop up with 10 points against Gliwice to see him thrown open the doors of our Dream 11 team.
Although Michal Samsonowicz was in tepid form the last time around, we’ll still be opting for him for this clash. In an ambit thin on quality, the five points Michal popped up with the last time around make for a sparkling diamond with him showing calibre to elevate those numbers.
Not only did he come up with his windmills and reverse scoops to pile on 11 points but Bartosz Diduszbko delivered 6 boards as well in his foregone tie to make him our pick from Torun.
Lublin will also finally feature in our framework for the fixture with Amani Moore becoming the first player to grace the land of our side. His spin and slams and alley-oops saw him jostle his way to 19 points, top-scoring for the side to see him become the first player from the club.
The most heavily indulged in the docket of our Dream 11 side also finds coverage from Torun. We are making Aaron Cel our pick from the side after his well-rounded showing of 11 points, 6 assists and 11 rebounds.
The only player from his side to deliver a double-double in their first game of the season, Kacper Borowski makes for a must pick for the impending tie. He delivered 14 points and 12 rebounds on the day, a versatile and well-endowed performance which was a testament to his sprawling skill set as a player.
Slotting in next to him is Sherron Dorsey-Walker. In a game where last year’s second-placed side failed to muster up points, he offered a neat 12 point display with his ability to backstep and shoot seeing him ease his way to baskets.
His side’s top scorer in the foregone matchup, Damian King from Torun brings down the curtains on our Dream 11 team for today. He delivered a gargantuan 24 points for his side, one which saw him leave the opposition in a tizzy with his jump shots.
His gripping double-double sees Cel lead our side as the star player while Borowski is the pro player.
