Top-seeded Pure Youth Construction avenged Saturday night’s tough loss to the Fubon
Braves by erupting for 55 points in the second half to pull away with a 92-72 win in Game 2 of the SBL semi-finals at the Sinjhuang Sports Complex in New Taipei City last night to even the best-of-seven series at one win apiece.
Tsai Wen-cheng held nothing back in the must-win game for the four-time defending champions, who squandered a double-digit lead in the first half on Saturday to drop the opener by eight with 26 points on the night to pace the Builders to victory.
“The biggest difference between the two games was our defense, especially in the second half,” Tsai said after the game.
Pure Youth held a red-hot Fubon offense, winners of four straight games heading into the contest, to 37 points in the second half to hand the Braves their first loss in the post-season. [FULL STORY]
