Lee Fong-yong leads Dacin past SINA

Lee Fong-yong had a team-high 25 points on 5-for-7 3-point shooting as Dacin beat SINA 87-84 and took the 1-0 lead in the SBL first round playoffs. Brilliant as usual, Tien Lei had 19 points, 11 rebounds and three blocks in the victory.

Lee Fong-yong finally proved he could be a big-game player. And with the inspiration from his elder brother, who was announced brain dead because of an auto accident, no one can stop him tonight. Lee was 10-for-14 from the field.

Tien Lei was heavily covered by SINA and took a backseat offensively to Lee, but he still controlled the paint.

Lo Shin-liang and Huang Chun-hsiung also broke out of the slump and combined for 50 points. SINA made the final push in the final minute, but Lo Shin-liang missed two potential game-tying 3-pointers in the last three seconds.
