SINA tied series at 1-1

It’s probably ugly, but SINA can take it. SINA beat Dacin 62-54 in an ugly game in which both teams couldn’t find the basket. SINA tied the first round series at 1-1.

SINA shot only 24-for-67 (35.8%) from the field, including 1-for-19 from the 3-point territory. But Dacin was even worse. With only 19 field goals made (19-for-62, 30.6%), they couldn’t go anywhere and trailed from the beginning.

Both teams shot poor in the perimeter tonight. Naturally, SINA went with their strength – the inside. SINA frontline dominated the game, as Liu Yi-hsiang and Huang Chun-hsiung combined for 33 points and 21 rebounds.

Tien Lei had a double-double (15 points, 15 rebounds) as usual but was plagued by two early fouls in the first quarter. And he had one of the worst shooting night of the season, making only 6 of 21 shots.
