Hsiang-Ting Huang is averaging 13.6 points and 9.6 rebounds while Qi Wen is averaging 12.4 points and 2.3 rebounds. Zi-Yin Pan is grabbing 3.5 rebounds and Qian-Hui Xu is dishing 3.7 assists.

Chunghua Telecom have won three of their last four meetings against Taipower, including the last two meetings, which were decided by a combined 11 points. Taipower did beat Chunghua Telecom on May 14, and they ended up winning that game by 17 points.
It's hard to make a case for either of these teams in their current form, so I'm certainly not looking to lay points with either of these clubs. Taipower is coming off a game where it scored just 36 points and lost by 62 points. Chunghua Telecom has owned the h2h history, but it's also a team that's scored under 70 points in each of its last three games and has won just three games since May 10. And while the h2h history is a bit one-sided, the last two meetings were decided by an average of just 5.5 points.
I may end up regretting this later, but I'd lean toward Taipower and the free points if forced to pick this contest.
