KUALA LUMPUR – The Westports Malaysia Dragons’ home games are about to kick off with their second game against Saigon Heat from Vietnam.

Our defeat in Ho Chi Minh City against them early December was by mere 5-points following a great comeback attempt by Dragons, 65-60.

As of writing, Dragons have only played 3 games to date, 1 win against Zhuhai Wolf Warriors and 2 losses which came from their game against Singapore Slingers and Saigon Heat.

Having played considerably less amount of games compared to other teams in the league, Dragons are now at 7th place in league standings.

“We have four home games in a row and it’s only our first game,” said Coach Jamie Pearlman. “We’re just really excited to play at home in front of all our fans.”

According to Dragons’ head coach, the team has been training their offense more than defense of late, making sure to keep a balance on both ends of the court.

“If we had just two more 3-pointers in our first game against Saigon, we could have possibly take home the win then.”

Benjamin Sim of the Dragons will not be joining the team for the first home game due to minor knee injuries which he hopes to recover from soon.

“I’m really excited to play with the team but it’s really unfortunate that I got injured,” said the 27-year old rising star. “I’ll be coming back soon and I hope I won’t disappoint our fans!”

Dragons will be having FOUR home games in a row starting tomorrow:

2nd January – Saigon Heat
6th January – Hong Kong Eastern
9th January – Alab Pilipinas
13th January – Zhuhai Wolf Warriors

All home games will be played at MABA Stadium a.k.a. the Dragons’ Den!
