Cade Davis was on fire as he ramped up 21 points for KL Dragons in their 92-60 win over Taipei Fubon Braves in Wednesday’s Asean Basketball League (ABL) match at Maba Stadium in Kuala Lumpur.
The American started the match determined to prove a point following a poor performance in the 79-72 home loss to Saigon Heat on Feb 7.
The 1.97m swingman was pleased with himself for playing a huge role in helping his team stay on track for the playoffs.
“I absolutely had a chip on my shoulder because, as an import, there are a lot more responsibilities on my shoulders,” said Davis, who torched the Braves with five three-pointers.
“I also thought we played good defence this time, getting those rebounds, and Amir (Bell) also did a great job in the transition to give us those easy looks at the basket.
“It was certainly a great way to bounce back, and it gives us the momentum going into the next few tough games.”
Bell was the next best performer with 14 points, 12 rebounds and 10 assists, while the bench trio of Ting Chun Hong, Kuek Tian Yuan and Tem Zhem Jie also stayed active by propping up a combined total of 23 points.
The Dragons, who now have a 6-6 record, take on Singapore Slingers at the OCBC Arena today.
