ZGB Vs NMK Dream 11 Prediction: Both sides take on each other after suffering defeats in their bygone encounters.
The showdown between Zhejiang and Nanjing today is one which comes bearing with its colossal ramifications. With both these sides stuttering to defeats in their bygone affairs, a win today is needed to resume normal activity and see them get back to winning ways.
For 6th placed Zhejiang, while last time’s defeat wasn’t one which will massively perturb them, the side will be left ruing a tie which they should have managed to close out and control as they liked. Taking on a Bayi Rockets side which had 0 wins in its first five encounters, Zhejiang ended up doing the improbable as they slipped to a slender 92-90 defeat.
It curtailed their three win spree a result which halted the side’s march towards a spot in the echelons of the points. Elsewhere, Zhejiang saw their three game winning spin being curbed as well with the side more comprehensively thumped in their 120-017 routing on the day.
With both the attacks being more or less the same, it’s the defensive side of the game which will determine the winner from this encounter. And its in this docket where Zhejiang will be able to pull off the jugular with the side’s defensive juggernaut set to hand out Nanjing a fourth defeat in 7 games.

Dream 11 Picks
Joe Young’s 60 point performance for Tongxi will make the point guard a must have performance for the encounter. He scored over half of his side’s points, sending down an imperious and titillating display of clean shooting both inside the paint and outside the circle from the midrange region.
The opposition on the other hand will see us opt for Shuaipeng Cheng with the player registering the 18 field points for his side, a showing which brought his side to all within touching distance of a win.
And a reason he was allowed to maraud himself freely into the attacking ambit and zealously shoot was due to the eloquent showing Qian Qu came up with. In what was a path breaking performance from the side’s shooting guard, he sent down a gargantuan 22 points, 7 assists and 7 rebounds, a performance so complete and well rounded that it didn’t deserve to end up on the losing side.
The opposition meanwhile will see us repose faith in the services of the guile filled Jingjia He.
When Qanbo Lu takes on a defensive unit that went onto open itself and leak in 120 points the last time around, the player is set to come out with a performance to wax and write home about. The player sent down 15 points the last time around, baskets which were born out of the sprawling skill set he has to pull off crossovers and send down off handed shots.
Tongxi will elsewhere see us opt for the diminutive and expansive Shendong Li for the imminent fixture.
Liu Zeyi is emerging as one of the most untenable players in the league. No matter how hard you try, the player is a force inside the paint, a power forward whose floating jump points, free throws and ability to latch onto the second chance points saw him come up with a 16-11 double-double the last time around.
If there’s any player calibre of seeing Tongxi shore up their defence and bolster it, its Hamed Haddadi. His double-double in the previous tie saw him pull off a staggering 18 rebounds, ones which saw him pull off quick break points for the side and come up with turnovers at the ideal situations.
His 60 points will se us make Young our star player while Hames is our vice-captain.
