Bank of Taiwan rallied from a fourth-quarter deficit with a decisive 12-1 run to pull off a 68-65 win over the Fubon Braves at the Banciao Gymnasium in New Taipei City last night.
The victory not only extended their current winning streak to four, but also put the Financial Wizards within a game of the fourth-placed Yulon Luxgens in the standings with three weeks remaining in the regular season.
