The Hong Kong Eastern Long Lions were given a tough fight by the Saigon Heat on Saturday, December 10, but as they have learned in their conquest of the Singapore Slingers, no challenge was too much to overcome. 'That game (against Singapore) made us realize that you can overcome anything,' Long Lions head coach Torres Eduard said. 'So at halftime, we were down 8, I told them it is nothing.' The Long Lions woke up from a sluggish first half and rolled past the Heat with a sterling second half to tally an 84-74 win at the CIS Arena in Vietnam and remain perfect in the 2016-17 ASEAN Basketball League season. World Import Marcus Elliot stepped up in the absence of Heritage Import Lamb Tyler (196-G-91, college: Long Beach St.), pouring in 25 points - his fourth consecutive 20-point game of the young season - on 10-of-17 field goal shooting and adding 6 assists. Four others finished in double-digit scoring in a total team effort to carry the Long Lions to their fourth straight victory. Center Sullivan Patrick (206-F/C-88, college: SE Louisiana, agency: HMS) scored 14 points and 8 rebounds while Guinchard Steven (196-G-93, college: Emmanuel, GA) chipped in a double-double of 13 points and 10 boards. 'It was a complete team effort,' Torres said. Unlike in their first outing last week, Saigon was engaged from the opening tip. With the arrival of World Import Herbert Hill, who will be the team's temporary center while waiting for Christies Charles to recover, the Heat jumped out on a 13-6 lead. Hill received plenty of touches in the post, and quickly made impact. By the end of the first half, Hill already had 16 points and 7 rebounds while the Heat overall had 30 inside points and a 22-15 advantage in rebounding for a 46-38 halftime lead. 'Like in our game against Singapore, we had foul trouble in the beginning of the game Our defense wasn't that consistent,' Torres said. 'So in the second half I told them just to go harder in every aspect of the game. Our defense was impressive and we took the lead. That was crucial.' Hong Kong switched to a zone defense in the middle two quarters, clogging the paint and making it difficult for the Heat to operate. The Long Lions then shut down their opponent's offense in the third period, limiting them to only one field goal make in a span of seven minutes. In the process, the Long Lions went on a 21-4 blast and outscored the Heat, 26-14 in the third quarter which turned the game around. The Heat tried to keep it close in the fourth quarter, cutting the deficit down to just 74-68 but consecutive triples by Chan Sui Wing and Guinchard sealed the deal for Hong Kong. Hill's 29 points on 14-of-21 shooting, 10 rebounds, and 2 blocks led Saigon. Lenny Daniel (203-PF-87, college: CS Northridge) added 23 points, 13 rebounds, 3 assists, and 2 blocks but the home side got no production from their bench. Turnovers again hampered the Heat, as they committed 17 miscues which were converted into 21 extra points by the Long Lions. The Long Lions' bench stepped up as well, scoring 18 points. The Heat will complete their three-game home stand against the Westports Malaysia Dragons on December 17 while the Long Lions will have 12 days to recover and talk things before resuming action at home against the Singapore Slingers on December 22.
