BN vs CN Dream11: Having ended a two-game losing run in the last round, Bonanza Basketball Club will be looking to make the back-to-back wins when they play hosts to Basketball Club Chinandega in the regular season of Nicaragua Basketball League on Sunday night (IST).
As things stand, Bonanza are currently sitting on the fringes of playoff spots coming into this game, with a 8-7 return on the season. Prior to those two defeats, Bonanza were in good form, winning four times in five games, and had the top-six spots well within their reach. But the consecutive defeats, coupled with a good run for most teams sitting above them, made those negative results looks even more costly for them, as the current gap between them and the top six teams stand at five matches. That’s not unbridgeable, but their form is not good, and they are not consistent enough to warrant confidence. But this game gives them to record two wins on the trot.
For Chinandega Basketball Club, the current position is even more formidable, for they are reeling down in the bottom half of the table and have a hinge deficit to erase in the playoff race. But even more major concern for them is the current form, which reads two successive defeats and three in the last five matches. It’s clear that the visitors need to win games to remain in the playoff race.
Teams: Bonanza Basketball and Chinandega

The table doesn’t lie and it’s true for both these two teams as well. Bonanza Basketball Club are a better team if the current form and the position on the table are taken into consideration. The hosts have a better defensive record as well.
Chinandega Basketball Club, on the other hand, know they are now slowly falling into the must-win situations and we know they are not a roster that can sustain a good run for a longer period. That’s why it’s imperative that they at least win games here and there and not let the defeats make their return look negative.
That said, here in this game, a win for the Bonanza is the most likely result and we go by this in our Dream11 Fantasy Basketball.
