After a convincing 76-41 victory against Nang Dragons last weekend, Nha Trang Dolphins rose to 2nd place on the table with six wins and four losses after 10 matches. In this match, Dominique Tham of Nha Trang Dolphins performed excellently in defending, blocking opponents’ shots and scoring points. Dominique Tham was named as the best player of the match. Just one win in the remaining two matches of the preliminary round will ensure a spot in the playoffs for the four best teams of this year’s VBA for Nha Trang Dolphins.
 
Currently, Hanoi Buffaloes are sitting at the 4th position on the table with four wins and four losses. They still have chance to win a play-off spot. In the first leg, Nha Trang Dolphins lost 73-82 to Hanoi Buffaloes at Hoang Mai Stadium, Hanoi. Nha Trang Dolphins played that match without foreign player Flenard Whitfield, who was injured from the end of the second set. In addition, Dominique Tham was sent off for a foul at the end of the fourth set. After that, Nha Trang Dolphins couldn’t thwart the attacks from Hanoi Buffaloes and finally conceded a defeat. 
 
After the loss to Hanoi Buffaloes, Nha Trang Dolphins have had two consecutive wins against Saigon Heart and Da Nang Dragons. Besides, foreign players namely Dominique Tham and C.J Jackson and domestic players such as Huynh Vinh Quang, Nguyen Thanh Dat, etc. are in their good form. Hopefully, Nha Trang Dolphins will continue to play well in the match with Hanoi Buffaloes this time to qualify for the playoffs.
