This is still too early stage of the Regular Season in ASEAN League and we should expect many changes in upcoming rounds. Here is the last round review presented by ESL.

The most crucial game of the last round was a loss of Chinese Macau (2-1) on the court of Vietnamese Saigon Heat on Sunday night. Visitors were edged by Saigon Heat 96-93. They made 22-of-28 free shots (78.6 percent) during the game. 24 personal fouls committed by Macau helped opponents get some easy free throw opportunities. It was a good game for American-Puerto Rican point guard TreVon Hughes (185-87, college: Wisconsin) who led his team to a victory with 36 points (!!!) and 6 rebounds. Canadian Murphy Burnatowski (196-91, college: Colgate) contributed with 20 points and 10 rebounds for the winners. American power forward Ryan Watkins (206-91, college: Boise St., agency: Two Points) answered with 32 points and 8 rebounds (on 13-of-17 shooting from the field) for Macau. Saigon Heat are looking forward to face Formosa D. in Changhua City in the next round and it will be for sure the game of the week. Macau will play at home against CLS Knights and it may be a tough game between close rivals.
Another interesting game for Chinese Macau (2-1) which played on the court of Hong Kong Hong Kong ELL (1-2). Macau had an easy win 114-95. It was a great evening for American-Filipino guard Mikh McKinney (184-92, college: Sacramento St.) who led his team to a victory scoring 41 points (!!!), 6 rebounds and 8 assists (went 15 for 15 at the free throw line !!!). Anthony Tucker helped adding 29 points and 8 assists (went 7 for 7 at the free throw line). The best for the losing side was American forward Eric Ferguson (203-89, college: Georgia South) with a double-double by scoring 27 points and 13 rebounds. Hong Kong ELL's coach rotated ten players seeing no chance for a win. Macau will play against CLS Knights (#5) in Surabaya in the next round. Hong Kong ELL will play against Zhuhai to get more than just one victory in their record.
Taiwanese Formosa D. (3-0) had no problems winning another game on Saturday. This time they crushed Chinese Zhuhai (0-3) 107-81. It was a quality performance for Malcolm Miller who led the winners with a double-double by scoring 22 points, 7 rebounds and 12 assists. Chen Cai came up with 16 points and 8 rebounds for Zhuhai in the defeat. The winner was already known earlier in the game, so both coaches allowed to play the bench players saving starting five for next games. Formosa D. will meet Saigon Heat on the road in the next round and it will be for sure the game of the week. Zhuhai will play against Hong Kong ELL (#6) and hopes to get finally their first victory.
The game in Surabaya was also worth to mention about. Hong Kong Hong Kong ELL (1-2) played at the court of Indonesian CLS Knights (1-1). CLS Knights managed to secure a 9-point victory 87-78. The best player for the winners was Maxie Esho who had a double-double by scoring 22 points and 10 rebounds. Hong Kong ELL's coach tested ten players in this game, but that didn't help. CLS Knights' next round opponent will be Macau (#3) on the road and it will be quite challenging to get another victory. Hong Kong ELL will play against Zhuhai and hope to win that game.



Zhuhai - Formosa D. 81-107

Taiwanese Formosa D. (3-0) had no problems winning another game on Saturday. This time they crushed Chinese Zhuhai (0-3) 107-81. They outrebounded Zhuhai 47-33 including 34 on the defensive glass. Formosa D. shot the lights out from three sinking 19 long-distance shots on high 61.3 percentage. They looked well-organized offensively handing out 32 assists. It was a quality performance for American guard Malcolm Miller (201-91, college: Southern) who led the winners with a double-double by scoring 22 points, 7 rebounds and 12 assists. His fellow American import power forward Will Artino (211-92, college: Creighton) accounted for 21 points, 10 rebounds and 5 assists for the winning side. Center Chen Cai (205-93) came up with 16 points and 8 rebounds and Indonesian point guard Mario Wuysang (176-79) added 6 points and 12 assists respectively for Zhuhai in the defeat. Both teams had four players each who scored in double figures. The winner was already known earlier in the game, so both coaches allowed to play the bench players saving starting five for next games. Formosa D. will meet Saigon Heat on the road in the next round and it will be for sure the game of the week. Zhuhai will play against Hong Kong ELL (#6) and hopes to get finally their first victory.
