Vietnam's only professional basketball club Saigon Heat lost 68-72 to Indonesia Warriors in the ASEAN Basketball League at Ho Chi Minh City's Tan Binh Sports Center Saturday.
It marked a continuation of their yo-yo season, being their second consecutive defeat after three straight wins that had followed seven losses.
The team's American coach Jason Rabedeaux said the players were fatigued after playing four matches in 10 days.
In the match Saturday, the players did look exhausted, and the visitors from Indonesia, who had beat them Heat 96-76 at home earlier, led 24-9 in the first quarter.
The home team fought hard but, in the absence of accurate shooting, failed to catch up though they managed to keep the margin to four points.
