Bima Perkasa Yogyakarta
Both David Atkinson and Jordan Jacks are currently sidelined so Yogyakarta are importless and it has been reflecting on their results. The current 8-game losing streak had their playoff hopes evaporate very quickly in the last two weeks. Even though they have been speaking about bringing in replacements for their injured imports, there would be no point as their season is more or less done, and also league´s registration rules are making it difficult for them to sign new foreigners.
On the other hand, Bumi´s season is more than alive as every game counts at this point in their playoff battle. There is no doubt their motivation will be very high after they inexplicably threw away yesterday´s game. There are reports tempers were flaring in their dressing room after the game so we believe they will come out this Wednesday with a point to prove against Yogyakarta.
Bumi Borneo are a new team in the league so it took some time for them to develop chemistry and get going. They have solid quality with two American imports Randy Bell and Austin Mofunanya while the rest of the team is modest but works very well with their main foreign scorers. They are edging closer to the playoff zone currently being only one point away from third place in their group. This Tuesday they had a prime opportunity to jump into top 3 against heavily undermanned West Bandits but managed to lose an already won game. Bandits pulled off a comeback for the ages winning by 68:59 after they were down by ten points with only eight minutes remaining.
Truly an astonishing comeback by the Bandits which could reflect on Bumi´s team morale but against a weak opponent like Yogyakarta we think it won´t matter too much. Bima Perkasa Yogyakarta are one of the weakest teams in the league and their respective group sitting at the bottom with only three wins after 17 rounds. They have a poor domestic roster that can´t make up for the absences of their key American scorers who both got injured recently.
Bima Perkasa Yogyakarta vs. Bumi Borneo Prediction
In the only head-to-head game so far Bumi Borneo lost convincingly by 15 points(61:76). Tables have turned completely after that game in which Yogyakarta had both of their imports and was still a serious team competing for the playoffs.
Without their Americans, they are not a mere shadow of a team they used to be so we think Bumi will make up for their yesterday´s loss and win crucial points.
Prediction: Bumi Borneo Pontianak -2.5HC
