TPA vs BT Dream11: Taoyuan Pauian Archiland will be looking to return to winning ways when they play hosts to Bank of Taiwan in the regular season of Super Basketball League Taiwan on Thursday (IST). Pauian come into this game on the back of a big 72-99 home defeat at the hands of the current leaders Taiwan Beer, a result that also ended their six-game winning run. As things stand in the league, they are five games behind Taiwan Beer in the power rankings and know they must get back to winning ways to remain within touching distance of the leaders. That said, Pauian have been more than decent all season. In fact, they are the second-best team in the league in every sense, be it their current position, or it is their defence or offence.
Bank of Taiwan, on the other hand, are fourth in the table. They have 13 wins and 16 defeats from 29 rounds. They arrive in this game on the back of a 78-68 defeat against leaders Taiwan Beer which ended their two-game winning run. Despite them being not good enough in recent weeks, they are in a good position to qualify for the post-season, for they are a huge 8 game ahead of bottom-rooted Kaohsiung Jeoutai Technology heading into this match.
