Yulon Luxgen Dinos will be looking to wrap up the series when they hit the road for an away game at Taiwan Beer in Super League Basketball finals on Saturday (IST). Dinos are leading the series 2-0 following their 89-83 win in the last match, and that’s a shocking turn of events in the finals so far.
Taiwan Beer ruled the league in the regular season as they bullied every team on their way to the top spot, winning 25 times and dropping just seven matches. What’s even more interesting is that most of those defeats came in the first half of the season. So Beer were the most in-form team in the league, and so were the favourites to win the championship this season. It feels that something is not right with them at this moment. They are struggling against a team they beat six times in 8 matches this season before the finals. Whatever the problem is they will have to solve it for this is the game of the season for them, and the negative result will send them packing home and without a trophy, they seemed to deserve so much when the regular season ended.
While Yulon Luxgen Dinos will be aiming to execute their plans once and for all as they look to win the series here. They have been ruthless inside the pain, especially Sim Bhullar who is too big and too powerful to contain for the opponent.

Yulon Luxgen Dinos need not do anything different than what they have been doing so far in the finals series. They have outfoxed Taiwan Beer inside the paint and have been more aggressive in the offence.

We back the host Beer to win the match and stays alive in the series.
