Rockets (black) v C2
Coldstore (blue) v Vikings in a previous matchup.
Team Heat
Tema Rockets will be in action tonight at the Chinese Court in the Tema Community Basketball League against Nungua Coldstore.

The matchup is a tough one for the lowly ranked Rockets who roll into the game with momentum following a shock 63-61 win over Tema Community 2 in the last round.

Rockets take on league leading Nungua Coldstore whose flawless run in the 2018 campaign ended after suffering an equally shocking 33-34 loss to Francophone Stars.

The contest is the first of four scheduled games at the venue and tips off at 15:30 GMT with Coldstore already in the playoffs which starts later this month.

Coldstore has 14 wins in 15 games while Rockets have just two wins in 15 games.

Rockets on the other hand, need to win all three remaining games in the regular season including tonight’s encounter and hope for favorable results in other fixtures to stand a chance of making the postseason.

Teshie Vikings take on Tema Community 4 before Francophone Stars play Tema Heat and Ashaiman Lions play Akatsi Rifles in the final game.
