David Arnold
Not even a tough shooting night from their leading scorer could stop the Saigon Heat from picking up a huge win in the ASEAN Basketball League season. In a game where prolific import Lenny Daniel (203-PF-87, college: CS Northridge) was held to only 11 points and in foul trouble, the Heat still had enough to overcome the Westports Malaysia Dragons, winning 95-84 on the road. Heritage Import Moses Morgan led the way for the Heat with 24 points on 3/6 from three point area. He also had seven rebounds and 3 steals. 'I just came out here, made a few shots did what i can on the defensive end,' Morgan said. 'We came in here, put it together, and got a win.' The Dragons were the aggressor early on in the game, as they opened with a 12-0 run in the first quarter that threatened to make short work of the visiting team. But the Heat would respond by scoring 11 straight points to get back into the ballgame. Morgan scored 8 points in the run, and a field goal by David Arnold (188-SG, college: Mont.St.-Billings) gave the Heat the lead with 1:57 remaining. The Dragons would reclaim the lead once again, but Arnold finished the quarter with triple at the buzzer that tied the game at 22 at the end of the first. The second quarter was a back and forth affair, as both teams traded shots left and right in a high scoring affair. Dragons Heritage Import Joshua Munzon (191-G-95, college: CS Los Angeles), who began the season as the Heat's import, had the highlight of the quarter, throwing down a booming dunk with 4:14 remaining. The Heat entered the half holding a slim one point lead, 48-47. Things got heated in the third quarter, as both teams continued to battle on the defensive end. Daniel gave up a tough foul on a driving Munzon, which the youngster didn't appreciate. Tempers flared up, with Heat's Anthony Henriquez and Munzon getting into it. Saigon responded by executing in the half court set, with Nguyen Van Hung and Stefan Nguyen (190-G-92) contributing via getting several baskets off of baseline cuts. The Heat opened up their biggest lead of the game at 10 points with 2:33 remaining before Ivan Yeo hit a tough triple to keep the Dragons in the thick of the fight. Saigon would end the quarter with a six point, putting them in a good position to grab a big win on the road. They did exactly that, as they went to their leaders to seal the deal in the final quarter. Stellar shooting from Viet Arnold led the way, as the fiery guard notched 8 points all in the quarter. 'Coach puts the ball in my hand in the fourth, and I just attack and make the read,' Arnold said. 'Whether it's a pass or a score, I just try to make the right plays. I just want to win.' But despite Arnold's hot shooting, it was Stefan Nguyen who scored the biggest basket of the game for Saigon. With 1:20 remaining in the quarter, Nguyen penetrated and scored over Malaysia's Kiwi Gardner (170-PG-93, college: Providence), finishing with the basket and the foul. That would give the Heat an 8 point lead which would be enough of a cushion for them to finish off the home team. 'I was pretty proud of how we overcame some adversity in this game,' Saigon Head Coach Tony Garelotto said. 'I'm proud that the team showed desire to win games. To me, when we've won this year, we played as hard as we can.' Aside from Morgan, the Heat got key contributions from several local players. Stefan Nguyen celebrated his birthday in style, scoring a season high 13 points and dishing 3 assists. Hung Nguyen and Nguyen Phuc Tam combined for 10 points. Phuc Tam nailed two triples in the contest, while Hung battled in the paint for Daniel who was in foul trouble, to the delight of Coach Garbelotto. 'We get crushed all the time about our local players, but there he is coming in for Lenny in a critical situation, and he gives us points, rebounding, and key plays. I'm very proud he was able to contribute at last.' Kiwi Gardner led Malaysia with 25 points, 5 rebounds and 6 assists, while Skylar Spencer (208-F/C-94, college: San Diego St.) had a double-double of 20 points and 14 rebounds. Munzon had 16 points in the game, though he struggled shooting at a 5/24 clip. 'It was a must win,' Arnold said of their matchup with the Dragons. 'There's no option but to win. If we lose this game, we're down 3-0 [in the series versus Malaysia]. 'We need every win we can get.' With the victory, the Heat are now at 4-8, as they inch closer to the Kaohsiung Truth (5-9) in the race for the fourth seed in the Playoffs. They return to the CIS Arena in Saigon to face Alab Pilipinas on Sunday, February 26. The Dragons (3-11) will need to shake off this loss immediately, as they face the league leading Hong Kong Eastern Long Lions on Sunday, February 26 in Gem-In Mall, Cyberjaya.

Despite being the smallest cager on court, the 28-year-old guided a ragtag Dragons team formed just a week ago to a surprising 81-67 win over Farmco TouchUp.
