MAT vs SI Dream11: Having won the first game, Matagalpa Basketball Club will be looking to take a 2-0 lead in the best-of-five finals series against San Isidro on Sunday morning (IST). But that won’t be easy by any stretch of the imagination, for Isidro have been in similar situation in the quarterfinal, but they came back stronger and are playing in the finals. But it’s not just the comeback which makes Isidro a very dangerous team in the Nicaragua Basketball League, for they are the most consistent team, with the regular-season table, which they topped with 18 wins and just a sole defeat, a proof of their heightened profile and their true ceiling.
That said, Isidro knows they have to improve on the showing in the last game. The four-point 75-79 defeat could have been avoided had they been more precise and dominant from the arc. Again, they are too good a team to suffer those sub-par nights in two consecutive games.
Matagalpa, on the other hand, should not do anything different tag what they did in the first game. There are not many teams, and indeed have not been that many games, in the league who, and where, limited Isidro’s offence to such extent. It will be difficult to repeat that sort of performance, but Matagalpa have every reason to believe that they can do the perfect job on regular-season leaders in two successive games.

Matagalpa vs San Isidro team news:
Matagalpa: The hosts arrive in this game with a fully-fit roster, with no player expected to miss the game either with injury or suspension. But some players such as Miranda, C M Lorio, F Z Marin, D A Rocha, and F Baltodano are also getting the game-time and are risky options.
San Isidro: No fresh injury concerns for Isidro ahead of this game, but some players may find hard to get on the active roster. R Munoz is certainly one of those players as he is not at 100% match fitness, while players such as Picado, A Laguna, P Laguna, Navarrette, F C Ramos, and I V Jimenez can be considered as risky options.

As mentioned above, Isidro lost the opening game and now find themselves fighting for life in the finals. They came back from a similar situation in the quarterfinals against Tipitapa, which shows the team is clutch and is more than capable of repeating the job against Matagalpa.
