HÀ NỘI — Saigon Heat ended HCM City Wings’ winning streak and jumped to the top of the Việt Nam Basketball Association League, after they won a derby match yesterday in the City.
Playing on home turf was a big advantage for the Heat, who won the game 79-69, after leading in all four sets.
The Heat, however, have played one match more than their rivals, therefore their position may be changed when the second-placed Wings play bottom-ranked Danang Dragon this Sunday while the Heat rests.
In another match yesterday, the Hanoi Buffaloes defeated Danang Dragon 79-68 on away grounds.
The Buffaloes maintain the third position and will meet the Cantho Catfish this weekend. — VNS
