The Yulon Luxgen Dinos need a win here to snap a three-game losing streak. The Yulon Luxgen Dinos are averaging 89.5 points on 52.2 percent shooting and allowing 87.6 points on 48.9 percent shooting. Marcus Keene is averaging 25 points and 7.2 rebounds while Sim Bhullar is averaging 18.8 points and 14.3 rebounds.

The Bank of Taiwan look to stay hot after winning three of their last four games.

Matt Jones is averaging 19.8 points and 2.7 assists while Charles Mitchell is averaging 19 points and 12.5 rebounds.

The Yulon Luxgen Dinos aren't playing a lick of defense during this losing stretch, and that includes allowing a combined 211 points in their last two games. The Bank of Taiwan have climb out of their funk with wins in three of their last four games and they won the last meeting while getting after it defensively. These games in the past have a history of being close, but backing the Yulon Luxgen Dinos in their current form isn't much of an option for me. The Bank of Taiwan are playing improved basketball and should be able to take advantage of the Dinos poor defense. I'll lay the reasonable chalk with Bank of Taiwan. I want little to do with the Yulon Luxgen Dinos in their current form.
