TPN Vs LFL Dream 11 Prediction: Without a win in 5, Tianjin fast on an undying downward spiral towards last spot.
Tianjin Pioneers are fighting a lost cause in CBA 2019-20. Ever since the league has returned, their has been no interested by the club to show fight and character, a team which has been ripped into shreds to be left in disarray in 19th position.
And with Bayi Rockets below them managing to scrounge their way to a couple of wins, Tianjin are fast taking on the identity of a club that will end this edition of the competition nailed down in bottom position. The club has been dreary in defence, a languid and laggard unit whose fracas in the backline has seen them engulfed in a disappointing quagmire.
This is a side a ruthless Liaoning Flying Leopard outfit is going to love its time out on the court against today. With Liaoning going from strength to strength to fulfil its aspirations of embarking into a spot in the top 4, Tianjin comes across a side which is going to force the issue against them and put to bed with consummate ease.
With four wins in their last five encounters including two on the spin, Liaoning have clicked as a side at exactly the right time. The team has bolstered its chances of making it into the quarter-finals directly, a position which will be enough to boost them when they take on a languishing Tianjin Pioneers side which will be left with another skewed result in their kitty.

Dream 11 Picks
After a game winning 26-11 performance the last time around, the imperious Zhao Jiewei was someone we just couldn’t leave out of our Dream 11 side for today’s clash. The point guard is going to cherish his time out in the middle against a lacklustre and lopsided defence, one which will allow him to come up with as many triples, layups and rebounds as he wishes.
He’s partnered up by Shiyan Gao, two names who are going to move in tandem to dole out a real thrashing out in the middle to the 19th placed side. We will also see the one name canter his way into our framework form Shanxi meanwhile with Liu Shuai making for a worthy pick given the tenacity he’s shown to emerge as the talisman of a waning and regressing attacking unit.
His 13 point performance saw Zikai Meng not only open the zone for himself but make things extremely cumbersome for the opposition defenders as he traversed past them with nonchalant ease to cajole his way the three pointers.
One of the most exquisite small forwards to have stepped out onto the court in this edition of the league, O.J. Mayo can easily end up with a triple-double in his favour today. He pulled off 23 points and 7 assists the last time around, a performance which saw him tough the tough and rope in unbridled joy for the side.
We are partnering him up with Tian-Ju He, a player who much like Mayo has never left the sanctum of our side when Loaning have been in place. The player sent down a breath-taking pathbreaking display in that encounter, shooting 24 points as he utilised his ability to shoot from the deep with a high conversation rate.
The opposition will on the other hand see us opt for the services of Siyu He. The most flawless and dependable performer this season, the player has been consistent and dependable, something which was alluded in the way he galvanised his way with a scrumptious 11-12 double-double.
He is going to be partnered up by Wei Liu, a player who is capable of spurring his side in the defensive ambit courtesy of his sprawling skillset which allows him to leave the opposition in a tiff with his deflections and rebounds.
His ability to quash the opposition and coax his way the double-doubles see Mayo be our star player while Gao is the vice-captain.
