Coming off a sensational road win, the Macau Wolf Warriors are hoping to add another victory to their record when they take on the Formosa Dreamers this Wednesday at the Zhongshan Shaxi Gymnasium in Guangdong, China, 8 PM local time (GMT+8).
The Wolf Warriors notched their third victory in the 10th season of the ASEAN Basketball League after toppling the San Miguel Alab Pilipinas, 98-93, on Sunday. Sporting a 3-4 record, Macau has already surpassed its win total from the previous season.
Macau’s one-two punch delivered versus the Philippines as Julian Boyd and Douglas Herring put up 21 points apiece. Boyd corralled nine rebounds while Herring handed out 10 assists. The two World Imports also did damage on the defensive end, combining for five steals.
The Wolf Warriors hope to continue their winning ways in their five-game homestand starting with the Dreamers.
Formosa is also fresh off a victory, defeating the Singapore Slingers, 88-77 last Sunday, to improve its record to 3-5.
Jerran Young was a man on a mission against his former team, filling the stat sheet with 21 points, nine rebounds, six assists, and five steals.
Young is putting up career numbers in his first eight games for the Dreamers. The do-it-all guard is posting 18.2 points on 45 percent shooting, 12.8 rebounds, 5.0 assists, and 3.5 steals. He is the motor that keeps the Dreamers running.
The Wolf Warriors are 1-3 at home but they should be riding a lot of momentum from their win against Alab Pilipinas. Herring and Boyd will surely be at the forefront of Macau’s attack on offense but the Wolf Warriors also have their rebounding to lean on. Pulling down 41.1 boards per contest, they are second in the league.
The Dreamers will have to get the jump on the Wolf Warriors right from the get-go and keep the home crowd at bay. Spearheaded by Young, the Dreamers are at their best when they run the floor and push the pace, which allows their athleticism and shooting to overpower the defense.
