CC vs JN Dream11: It’a game between the two in-form teams as Basketball Club Costa Caribe prepare to host Brumas Jinotega for a crunch regular-season match in the Nicaragua Basketball League on Sunday morning (IST). And though the result of this game won’t determine which team may go on to win the ultimate thing in the end, it’s a great parameter to gauge each team’s title credentials, against each other, at a time when these two teams are in red-hot form. Caribe are on a seven-game winning run with most of their wins one-sided affair. They are sitting at the top of the pile with 13 wins and two defeats.
Jinotega, on the other hand, are down at five on the power ranking, but that’s a bit false indicator of the form they are in, and also of the season they are having, for the number of defeats on their season is the fewest, and their current form reads six consecutive wins for them heading into this match.

Costa Caribe are the best team in the league as per the current table in the league. They are in phenomenal form, having won seven times in the last seven matches, and are also the hosts in this game. They hardly lose matches on home turf and will once be feeding off the energy of the home support.
That said, by no means, the visitors can be termed as the second-best or the least favourite of the two before the game starts. Jinotega have reasons to feel confident for their chances even if the trip takes them to the home of the best team in the league, and that’s because they have lost just one game all season, winning 12 times from the 13 rounds. They are also on a six-game winning run, but the last defeat came on the road. In our Dream11 Fantasy Basketball prediction, we back Caribe to win the match.
