TB handed SINA fourth straight defeat

Led by Lin Chi-jay’s 21 points, Taiwan Beer (7-12) beat SINA 76-68 in consecutive weeks and handed SINA (12-7) its fourth straight loss last night (March 12).

SINA’s season is as dramatic as can be. They opened the season losing three straight before winning the next twelve. Then the 4-game losing streak followed. Fatigue is believed to be SINA’s current problem in the losing streak. SINA also failed to develop their second-unit during the season, riding on veterans like Lo Shin-liang and Chou Jun-san too much.
