Indonesia Team News

Saudi Arabia just recently met with Indonesia in the FIBA qualifiers and barely came away with the win. As one of the main Asian basketball powerhouses, the Saudis entered the game as huge favourites but they were up against a new-look Indonesian team that almost produced one of the biggest upsets in the history of Asian basketball.

Buoyed by their newest import reinforcement from the US, Derrick Xzavierro, Indonesia were maintaining a double-digit lead in the middle of the second half. It was not to be for them because Saudi Arabia surged back and managed to turn the game around and win narrowly in a dramatic ending(69:67).

Indonesia´s Serbian coach Rajko Toroman will be able to count on an additional import in the Asia Cup as Marques Bolden has recovered from injury after not playing in the latest FIBA qualifying window. With him in the lineup they managed to win the SEA Games in May so with him back, we see Indonesia as the main dark horse of the tournament capable of upsetting even the main title favourites.

Saudi Arabia Team News

The Saudis have arrived to Jakarta with more or less the same lineup they were using in their recent qualifying games which means they will still be without their main rebounder and starting center. A big blow for their undersized team which should have a lot of problems containing the 210 cm-tall Bolden.

In the head-to-head clash from ten days ago, Indonesia showed they are doing a great job with their basketball team. Besides naturalizing two new exciting imports, they also played a lot of friendlies against Australian NBL1 teams in preparation for the Asia Cup and the qualifiers

Their amateur team from before can´t be compared to their current roster which has a lot of talent and could produce some of the most memorable surprises in Asian basketball this summer.

Saudi Arabia vs Indonesia Prediction

The Saudis are well aware the Indonesians are no longer outsiders and will have to approach this game very seriously. Indonesia are playing at home and have their strongest lineup in history so we think they can make the game competitive and possibly even win this time with a new import controlling the boards.
