SINA will meet Yulon in SBL Finals

SINA veterans rose to the occasion as they played flawless 40 minutes in the deciding Game Three of the first round playoffs, beating Dacin 81-69 to rally from a 0-1 deficit and won the series. As expected, SINA will meet No.1 Yulon in the Finals.

Chou Jun-san and Lo Shin-laing, both over 32 years-old, proved once again they are the best backcourt combination. Chou made 8-of-13 from the field, including 3-for-3 from 3-point line, and scored 19. Lo had one of his best performances of the season with 18 points, 9 rebounds, 7 assists and 6 steals.

Tien Lei had 30 points and 11 rebounds and tried to carry Dacin on his own. But Dacin failed to get over the hump in the second half.

SINA will meet Yulon in Game 1 of the SBL Finals Thursday.
