TJJ vs CTP Dream11: Australian sporting culture is full of physicality and the play style is rough, whether it’s the men’s or women’s arena. Even in cricket, a rather non-contact game, the Australians like to roughen things up and we as Indian fans have firsthand followed their sporting culture, remembering the likes of Ricky Ponting, who didn’t hold back. Anyway, this is not about cricket, this one is about basketball, as NBL teams Tasmania JackJumpers take on Cairns Taipans.
The JumpJackers come into this game after a heart-crushing 79:84 despite a 20 points night by Jack McVeigh which wasn’t enough. On the other hand, this will be the first game for Cairns Taipans as they will look to start the season on a high.

TJJ vs CTP Dream11 NBL Projections, Stats & Analysis
The JumpJackers did a good job of forcing 17 turnovers in the last game but they still allowed 46% from the field, while shooting 41% in comparison themselves. They also got outrebounded but that was mostly because they were missing shots as they did a good job on offensive rebounds. Doyle and McVeigh did well but Magette, Kenyon, and Krslovic were off in terms of shooting the ball. Can Tasmania recover their offensive groove?
During the Preseason leg, the Taipans showed numerous defensive issues and they will need to repair them as the top crop in the NBL will not spare lapses. Tahjere McCall will have a big role on the offensive end while it will be interesting to see how the rest of the players respond to the challenge. Cairns have a lot of promise but we will have to see how they come up here.
