Both the Mono Vampire Basketball Club and CLS Knights Indonesia are desperate to end their respective three-game losing streaks as they matchup this Wednesday at Stadium 29, in Nonthaburi, Thailand.
Mono currently holds a 1-7 record while the Knights are slightly better with at 2-7.
The Thailand squad is fresh from a humbling 101-82 loss at the hands of the Saigon Heat last Sunday. To make matters worse, Michael Singletary was called for disqualifying for a hit on Saigon’s Thanh Sang Dinh late in the fourth quarter. Singletary will force to sit out the matchup with CLS.
Mono will have to figure out how to replace the production of Michael Singletary, who averages roughly 25 points per game. A big game from Malcolm White will not be enough and Jason Brickman will have to share some of the offensive load. He needs to bring his A-game and that doesn’t necessarily mean shooting the basketball more. Brickman is the type of player that can dominate the game just from his passing. He currently averages just 12.5 points per game but is second in the league in assists at 8.2. Whether it’s going to be scoring or dishing to open teammates, Brickman has to be aggressive in light of Singletary’s suspension.
As mentioned, the Knights are also in search of a win after enduring three straight losses. Their most recent defeat came against the Formosa Dreamers. The Indonesian squad debuted their two new World Imports Douglas Herring and Daryl Watkins. The 6-foot-11 Watkins ended up with just eight points and six rebound. Herring, on the other hand, was able to show more of his game. He had 16 points while also displaying his passing game as he tallied eight assists.
One of these teams will finally end their losing streak, will it be Mono Vampire or the CLS Knights?
