The Bank of Taiwan could use a feel good victory here after losing eight of their last 10 games. The Bank of Taiwan are averaging 84.9 points on 46.6 percent shooting and allowing 84.3 points on 50.8 percent shooting. Matt Jones is averaging 20.3 points and 2.7 assists while Charles Mitchell is averaging 18.9 points and 12.5 rebounds.

The Yulon Luxgen Dinos have won three of the last four meetings against Bank of Taiwan and all of those wins were comfortable, as they got whatever they wanted offensively. In the meeting a couple of days ago, the Dinos scored 94 points and came back from being down 18 points in the first quarter. It's the type of loss that could break the spirit of Bank of Taiwan, as that second half collapse where they were outscored by 20 points in the third quarter is tough to come back from. The Yulon Luxgen Dinos are simply in better form and have the mental edge heading into this contest with how the last meeting played out. I'll lay the reasonable chalk with the Dinos.
