The Super Basketball League (SBL) playoffs get under way tomorrow, with Taiwan Beer taking on Kinmen Kaoliang and the Fubon Braves to battle Pauian Archiland at the Changhua Stadium in the first games.
The top-ranked Dacin Tigers, with this year’s best record of 21 wins and nine losses, along with the second-placed Yulon Dinos (19-11), have a week of rest before the second round, when they face the first-round series winners.
In tomorrow’s first game, third-placed Taiwan Beer (18-12) face Kinmen Kaoliang (9-21) at 5pm before the Fubon Braves (17-13) play Pauian Archiland (14-16) at 7pm.
“This is the first time in 14 years of SBL history that post-season matches start in central Taiwan. We want to let fans in Changhua and other central regions enjoy the nation’s best players in action,” Chinese Taipei Basketball Association secretary-general Lee Yi-chung said at a news conference yesterday.
