Both the Westports Malaysia Dragons and Formosa Dreamers will be looking to end their respective losing streaks when they clash on Sunday, January 14, at the MABA Stadium in Kuala Lumpur.
The Dreamers, who own a league-worst 1-6 record, are on a four-game slide following their recent defeat at the hands of the Mono Vampire Basketball Club at home.
The Taiwan-based squad has made a significant change in their roster in the hopes of bolstering their chances in the next coming games. After just two games, Reggie Okosa has been replaced by Ronnie Aguilar as Formosa’s World Import.
Aguilar is a California native who was part of the Los Angeles Lakers training camp back in 2012. After stints with the NBA D-League (now G-League) and Venezuela, he’s now in Taiwan for the Dreamers. Aguilar is also a member of the El Salvador National Team.
The Westports Malaysia Dragons meanwhile have also lost four straight games similar to the Dreamers. The Dragons played last Friday and fell short to the Mono Vampire. The Dragons were down by as much as 19 points and tried to mount a comeback but unfortunately came up short in the dying seconds.
They made 16 triples, two shy from the league record. Three-point shooting seems to be the focus for Malaysia as they actually attempted more shots from deep than from two-point range. Despite their outside shooting, they couldn’t convert from close range, going only 19-for-31 from the charity stripe.
Something has to give when the Dragons and Dreamers clash on Sunday.
