YD vs BT Dream11: Having lost the last three matches, Yulon Luxgen Dinos will be aiming to get their season back on track when they entertain Bank of Taiwan in the regular-season of Super Basketball League on Friday (IST). But out of those three defeats, the 102-90 defeats in the last game would hurt Dinos the most, for it came against Kaohsiung Jeoutai Technology, a team currently propping up the table with just 5 five from 30 games, and out of playoff picture as well. So that shocking result must have hurt Dinos’ confidence as well, and that’s why this next game is very important, as the team need to pick itself up and steer towards the right track. Dinos are currently ranked as the third-best team in the league with 15-14 return on the season. They also boast the third-best offence in the league, but the defence is ranked worst.
Bank of Taiwan also arrive in this game on the back of a 77-85 away win against Taoyuan Pauian Archiland. That game carried more stakes than any other normal game as a win helped Bank of Taiwan to reduce the gap on Dinos to only three games. The next game is equally important for them, as a win for Taiwan could take them to third on the table, depending on the margin of the win.

Yulon Luxgen Dinos vs Bank of Taiwan team news:
Yulon Luxgen Dinos: As far as the injuries and suspensions are concerned, Sim Bhullar is a doubt. He sat out the last game due to the knock and will be assessed before the game. Other than him, Dinos don’t have such issues with the squad healthy these days. All the players are available for selection, but a final decision rests with the head coach and he will be deciding who gets the game-time. As in the last game where he left five players, in the shape of Ke Wei, Zier Lu, Liang Lu-Guan, Li-Jen Lin, and Te-Wei Lee, unused on the bench in the match against Kaohsiung Jeoutai Technology. So choose wisely.
Bank of Taiwan: For Bank of Taiwan, every player is available for selection. No injury worries for them either. Players like Matt Jones and Charles Mitchell will be the first names on the teamsheet, while the likes of Po-Sheng Cheng and You-Xu Chen are expected to get significant minutes as well.
