CYBERJAYA – The Hong Kong Eastern Long Lions will be playing Westports Malaysia Dragons this Friday in Cyberjaya.

So far, the Lions have won three out of four games against Dragons. In their most recent match last Sunday, the Hong Kong team won by 3 points over a truly exciting and tight game.

League Standings

On top of the leaderboard with 11 wins and 2 losses, the Lions can be regarded as the best team in the Asean Basketball League (ABL) right now.

Dragons on the other hand, with their newly formed team are at the bottom of the league with 3 wins in 15 games.

“I was so proud of Ivan and Kuek (Tian Yuan) last game when Skylar had 4 personal fouls and had to be taken out,” said Coach Thomas from Dragons after their last match against Hong Kong. “They stepped it up, they rose their level of game.”

Playoffs

With the playoffs around the corner, Dragons will have to double their efforts and win every game from now on to qualify.

Having had such a tight game last Sunday, will Dragons be able to defeat the number one team of the ABL?

Watch the game live at Gem-in Mall, Cyberjaya tomorrow night (Friday) at 8PM.
