Having taken a 1-0 lead in the finals series, Yulon Luxen Dinos will be looking to move one step closer to the title when they play hosts to Taiwan Beer in game-2 of Super Basketball League, Taiwan, finals series on Thursday (IST). That 83-88 win for Dinos in game-1 may have come as a surprise for everyone, but that was not a complete shock as Dinos are red-hot at the moment. They completely outplayed and whitewashed Taoyuan Pauian Archiland, winning the series 3-0 to move to the finals. Dinos know that they have the series to lose now but it is far from over, for Beer will come hard to them. After all, Taiwan Beer were the best team in the regular season, as they topped the table with 25 wins and seven defeats. They also defeated Dinos six times in the 8 regular-season matches, with the defeat in the last game the third time they lose against them in nine overall matchups this season.

TB vs YD Dream11 teams:
Having lost the last game, Taiwan Beer are hard-pressed for a win. They know if they lose this game, they will be on the verge of losing the series since it is a five-match series. But if any team can make a comeback it has to be Beer. But Yulon Luxen Dinos will be hard to crack here, at least on current form as Dinos come into this game on the back of a four-game winning run. We back Dinos to win this match.
