LM vs SI Dream11: Leones de Managua will have their task cut out as they pre[are to host the current league leaders San Isidro in the 2020 regular season of Nicaragua Basketball League on early Sunday morning (IST).
That said, Managua are also in good form, and are only three games away from the top spot, having played a game less than the leaders. So this is a very good opportunity to close the gap down to just two matches and if they can win their game-in-hand, it will just be two matches. Managua’s last match was a 74-67 home win against Matagalpa Basketball Club.
As mentioned, San Isidro are leading the table with 16-1 return on the season and are the best team in the league. They are coming into this game on the back of a three-game winning run.
