The Wellington Saints, currently riding a two-game winning streak, face off against the Nelson Giants in a rematch this Sunday, May 12th, for round 7 of the NZNBL season. Tip-off is at 6:30 AM UTC (1:30 PM local time) at the TSB Arena in Wellington.

Saints Soaring Despite Missing Key Player

The Saints come into the game undefeated after grinding out victories over the Nelson Giants (84-75) and Otago Nuggets (37-34). While missing key player Lat Mayen due to a shoulder injury, the Saints have been buoyed by the return of Izayah Mauriohooho Le’afa.

Giants In Desperate Need of a Win

The Nelson Giants, on the other hand, are in need of a turnaround. They’ve dropped three straight games, including their season opener against the Saints. Their struggles have been compounded by missing two import players and an injury to Sam Dempster. While Dempster is expected to return next week, the Giants will be looking to improve their overall game, especially their turnover issues (24 in the last game against the Saints).
