Jutai refused to finish controversial game

Jutai refused to finish the game with 1:10 remaining, when they trailed 72-76 to Taiwan Beer, due to three consecutive controversial calls. Jutai coaching staff and players walked out of the court and refused to re-enter the game, which was ruled a Taiwan Beer victory later by officials.

This is the first major controversy in the inaugural SBL season.

Anyway, Lin Chih-jay led all scorers with 30 points and helped TB snap a 4-game losing streak. Jutai lost the first game after snapping Yulon’s 11-game winning streak.
