Unstoppable Tien Lei shoots down Mars

Tien Lei had one of his best shooting nights of the season to lead Dacin to a surprisingly easy 82-70 victory over BCC Mars on Jan. 2. Tien Lei was 11-of-15 from the field, including 7-of-10 three-pointers, en route to his 32 points, 15 rebounds, 4 assists and 2 blocks performance.

Veteran Hsu Chi-chao also had another brilliant game, scoring 25 points on 10-of-14 shooting. Hsu averaged 22 points and 5.7 rebounds on 61.4% FG in the last three games and helped Dacin to the first winning streak of the season and climbed to 4-3.

Meanwhile, Mars dropped two straight despite having starting PG Yen Shin-shu back. Yen, who sat out the last three games, had 12 points but was obviously still not in his top form.
