Jordan Team News

With everything Jordan have shown so far, they definitely deserve to win a medal. After two unbelievable comeback wins over Taiwan and Iran, they couldn´t keep it together against Lebanon, losing one of the most dramatic endings we have seen in the FIBA Asia Cup.

Since their team can´t keep up with Australia, it´s actually a good thing Lebanon progressed, making the final much more competitive.

At the beginning of the previous decade, Jordan were in their prime, winning the bronze medal in 2009 and finishing as the runners-up just two years later. Their team is at a similar level now after years of searching with all of their main stars playing and proving they have more than enough to keep up with the main Asian heavyweights.

New Zealand Team News

Considering the difference in class, we were impressed by the Tall Blacks´ spirited effort against Australia. New Zealand refused to go down without a fight and kept chipping away at Australia´s lead. They managed to cut the deficit to just two points in the final quarter, but the Boomers didn´t allow them to come back and routinely closed out the game.

In the last FIBA Asia Cup held in 2017, New Zealand also found themselves in the bronze medal fight. Five years ago the Korean team outgunned them, but in this years´ edition, they exacted revenge in the quarter-final.

Their 88:78 win over the Korean veterans was their best performance of the tournament, and they will need to repeat it if they want to take down a much more experienced Jordanian team.

Jordan vs New Zealand Prediction

The heartbreaking loss Jordan suffered in the semi-final shouldn´t affect their team greatly. A medal would mean the world to them, so we expect their players to recover quickly and reorganize for this vital clash.

New Zealand holds a slender edge, but at this point, it would be a poor decision to bet against Jordan. Their roster consists of two naturalized players and all the most important domestic pieces so we will back them to cover the spread against the youngest team in the tournament.
