Analysis:

Either Auckland or Otago will win the New Zealand NBL championship.

Auckland Tuatara

Auckland have been able to shock some of the favorites and earn a spot in the final thanks to the comeback of their finest player who quit the squad early in the season. Now that they have a complete roster and their captain Chris Johnson, who returned just before the playoffs to bolster them, they are performing similarly to how they did at the beginning of the season.

NBL Preview -- Auckland Tuatara vs Otago Nuggets

Otago Nuggets

The Nuggets have significantly improved and defeated the Giants by 15 points in yesterday's semifinals (89:74). Auckland defeated two major championship challengers, Wellington and Taranaki, in two of their most impressive performances of the year. The Nuggets are now the ideal matchup for a thrilling and exciting game and championship.

Prediction

The Auckland are the same one that dominated everyone at the beginning of the season. Although we anticipate a close contest, I believe Auckland should be able to win because one of their important players is returning.


Pick: Auckland Tuatara +1.5
