ZRG Vs GCN Dream11, Team Overview, Match Centre And Probable Playing 5: Season fast ending for bottom-placed Group B Basket Zaragoza.
Time is running out and running out fast for Basket Zaragoza. After registering three defeats on the spin, the side finds itself clobbered in place of the group, a spot which is increasingly making a spot in the ensuing round an unattainable one for the club.
It’s not just the position which the club finds itself in which makes for dreary viewing but more so the complete absence of fight which is a more worrisome cause of concern. The side’s performances have been tiresome and baffling, sniffling any chances the side had of emerging as a strong contender when the Liga Endesa had returned to Spain.
Trounced 113-93 by Andorra the last time around, the side is in a dire quagmire ahead of its imminent outing against Gran Canaria. Where Zaragoza had been toyed around with by everyone, Gran Canaria on the other hand have rekindled their chances of a spot in the pinnacles of the group after pulling off a gusty and gritty 91-87 win over Burgos, a game which went all the way down to overtime.
Registering their second win on the bounce in sensational fashion, Gran Canaria have been accorded with the moniker of outright favourites for today’s tie. The side is galvanised by its win against Burgos, a showing which will propel them towards a third win in a row this Wednesday.

ZRG Vs GCN Dream11 Picks
All season long, Gran Canaria have ridden on Omar Cook’s wordclass calibre as a player. His unnerving and unequivocal endeavours have resulted in the side’s consummate success in the group with the point guard shooting 16 from the deep the last time around to script an unprecedented win over Burgos the last time around.
He’s going to be partnered alongside Xavier Rabaseda who sent down four points and four rebounds in the same encounter with the two moving in unison to make life extremely cumbersome for Burgos.
The calibre of Javier Beiran sees him become the third successive player from Gran Canaria, a player who will rip a waning and wavering defence unit into shreds with his offhand shots and crossovers. This docket of our Dream 11 side also features our first pick from the bottom placed with Jonathan Barreiro making for a more than variable pick after his tenacious 13 point display in the bygone contest.
Despite ending up on the losing side, Robin Benzing was unfazed by the performance of his counterparts. The Basket player came up with a piquant 19 point pefromance, a ravishing performance which saw him torch his way up the court and leave the opposition aghast on how to defend against him.
Gran Canaria meanwhile will find representing in the succulent Beqa Burjanadze after his 12 points and the 8 rebounds in the last outing.
His side’s game winner against Burgos, Matt Costello not only upped the ante when most needed but showed why he’s the mainstay of his side’s defence. His 9 rebounds were largely defensive, seeing him latch onto the second chance points and come up with 12 points inside the paint as well.
The opposition on the other hand will feature the tenacity and grit of the resolute Nicholas Brussino after his mammoth 19 point showing saw him send down free throws and floating jump points at will.
The 12 points for Matt make him our side’s star player while Nicholas is the vice-captain.
