HÀ NỘI — Saigon Heat will meet defending champions Westports Malaysia Dragons on January 20 at the ASEAN Basketball League at the House of Champions, Gem-In Mall in Cyberjaya at 8pm in Malaysia.
The past weekend has not been kind to the Dragons as they took a step back and lost both games to Hong Kong Eastern Long Lions and Alab Pilipinas by an average of 14 points.
The Dragons will need to regain their offensive rhythm if they want to give the Heat a good challenge.
Saigon Heat, on the other hand, enjoyed the last weekend, notching their first win of the season, following a career-high 34 points from Joshua Munzon.
Momentum is on the side of the Heat and their head coach Tony Garbelotto wants the squad to attain more victories.
“We’ve got tough games now. These are games against teams that we have to fight hard against. We have to come up with wins. I think we can get better,” Garbelotto said on the tournament’s website. — VNS
