Siblings going head-to-head at 2021 VBA

Siblings going head-to-head at 2021 VBA

A Sang Dinh and Tam Dinh line-up for two rival teams and the prospect of the Young siblings’ first-ever brotherly battle were among what spectators relished at the VBA Premier Bubble Games - Brought to you by NovaWorld Phan Thiet.

Young siblings’ first-ever rivalry

Unlike Justin Young, a seasonal player who has already established a reputation in the VBA, this is Jordan Young’s first time at a professional tournament. 

Game 22 between Thang Long Warriors and the Vietnamese national basketball team was also the first time they faced off against each other.

Although they look the same, their play styles were completely different.

Justin is famous in the VBA for his defensive ability. As the best defensive player at the 2016 VBA, he is always in charge of protecting the Vietnamese national team from the opponents’ 2-meter-tall foreign players inside the three-point line.

Meanwhile, Jordan is a long-range shooter, who plays excellently outside the three-point line.

Jordan proved his ability in Game 5, successfully scoring seven three-pointers, with a scoring efficiency rate of 58.3 percent, to become the highest-scorer for his team with 24 points.

In Game 22, Justin was the soul of the Vietnamese national team’s play as he contributed 14 points, eight steals, and five assists while Jordan only scored nine points from three three-pointers for Thang Long Warriors. 

Thanks to the superiority of two foreign players Tim Guers and Bryan Coleman, Jordan’s Thang Long Warriors claimed an 84-73 victory in the game.

Sang Dinh’s convincing win over Tam Dinh

Game 12 turned one-sided soon after the start as Tam Dinh’s Vietnamese national basketball team was taken aback by Hanoi Buffaloes’ three-point efficiency. 

In the first few minutes, following Sang Dinh’s initiative, Hanoi Buffaloes players made six out of seven successful long-range shots to take the lead.

The most significant head-to-head situation between the two brothers was when Tam Dinh tried to block Sang Dinh’s three-point shots. 

With a relaxed mentality, Sang Dinh successfully finished and widened the gap to 19 points between the two teams.

At the end of regulation, Tam Dinh’s Vietnamese national team suffered an overwhelming 54-96 loss to the Buffaloes. 

In terms of individual performance, Tam Dinh had a poor game as he only scored 12 points and had one assist while Sang Dinh played better with 16 points and four assists.

Thang Long Warriors’ victory over Vietnamese national basketball team

Thang Long Warriors competed head-to-head against the Vietnamese national basketball team in Game 22 of the VBA Premier Bubble Games - Brought to you by NovaWorld Phan Thiet.

With a line-up comprising players of the same level, Thang Long Warriors successfully implemented a good play against the Vietnamese national team in the first period. 

As the defense outside the three-pointer line remained the weakness of coach Kevin Yurkus’ players, Thang Long Warriors widened the gap throughout the remainder of the game and won 84-73.

Timothy Guers was named MVP with 28 points, 11 rebounds, and eight assists.
