Bank of Taiwan yesterday afternoon nipped a three-game slide with a narrow 73-70 win over the Fubon Braves at the Changhua County Gymnasium to salvage a 1-1 record for the week.

The win also avenged a two-point defeat at the hands of the Braves in their first meeting with the Bankers, who nearly gave the game away in the closing seconds with an ill-advised foul on a three-point attempt by Fubon’s Joseph Lin that could have brought the Braves to within one had Lin converted all three of his free-throw attempts.

Luckily for the Bankers, Lin managed to make only two of the three free throws to leave the Bankers’ lead at two, which gave them just enough breathing room to keep the Braves from turning the tide in the end.
