As the regular season comes to an end, the two teams at the bottom of the Atlantic Conference table are now running against time to save themselves from relegation. Their final game on Saturday will decide which team survives.
The two teams both have 32 points each from 27 games played (W5-L22) which means that if they both win or both lose their last game, they will finish with the same number of points - 34 or 33. According to the League Rules and Regulation, if two teams tie on points, the head-to-head rule will be applied. This puts Delta Force at an advantage over NAF Rockets.
