SINA beat Yulon for 12th straight victory

All-Star backcourt Chou Jun-san and Lo Shin-liang combined for almost half of SINA’s points as SINA beat Yulon 68-60 for its 12th straight win and broke Yulon’s season-high 11-game winning streak record. SINA (12-3) is now only a half game behind Yulon (13-2).

In the second game of the night, O-Yang Jin-hen scored the winning layup off Yang Yu-ming’s pass with 5.6 seconds remaining to lift Jutai over Dacin, 72-71, for its third consecutive win. This is also the second straight game Jutai won in the last play. Hsu Tse-shin’s buzzer-beating 20-footer helped Jutai to a 78-76 win over Mars last week.
