"The Beast" Lin Chih-chieh walked out of his slump and proved his worth, knocking down a game-winning three with 9.3 seconds to go as Taiwan Beer upset Dacin 68-67 Saturday.
In other games, Yulon almost squandered a 20-point first-half lead before holding off a BOT rally. The Pure Youth-Taiwan Mobile game became a showdown of Tsai-shin High School alumni as Chien Chia-hong, Chen Shih-chieh and Hong Chih-shan each scored 21 for PY and TM's Ouyang Ching-heng tallied a season-high 29 points.
