INSIDE THE STATS FBK (C) Dustin Killborn tallied career-highs in almost every category and teammate FBK (F) Ryan Ng reached double-digit rebounds for the first time.
BZB (G) Cody Le (13 pts and 12 asts) recorded double-digit assists for the 2nd time this season.
WHIS, Houston -- Both teams struggled a bit early on, and this favored the underdog Breakers. Led by (F) Long Pham (team-high 12 pts) FBK was able to keep the game close against the volatile offense that BZB brings to the table. BZB (G) Vicmor Le (14 pts) struggled early on, and this allowed FBK to keep the game tied going into the 2nd qtr.
However, the late arrival of standout BZB (G) Cody Le (13 pts and 12 asts) changed the entire complexity of the game. Despite a valiant effort by FBK (C) Dustin Killborn (team-high 12 pts), the Breakers were unable to keep up with the fast pace game of the Beaters.
The uptempo game definitely favored BZB. FBK's guards looked out of sync and frazzled against the BZB pressure defense. Several key TOs helped BZB build upon their lead. At one point, the Beaters were ahead by over 20 pts.
In the half court set, BZB (G) Jay Iledan took advantage of lapses in defense and sank 3FGs from a variety of spots on the floor.
The Breakers did mount a small come back late in the 3rd qtr, but several more untimely TOs early in the 4th qtr gave the momentum right back to the Beaters. From that point on, BZB rode that wave to the end. FBK worked extremely hard but, in the end, could not quite get over the hump. -- Stan Van Ghandi
