Game 18 of the VBA Premier Bubble Games - Brought to you by NovaWorld Phan Thiet was a fierce battle between two former VBA champions – Cantho Catfish and Thang Long Warriors.

The Mekong Delta-based team was forced to apply double and triple teaming in order to contain Guers.

As Thang Long Warriors previously lost to Cantho Catfish in Game 2 and were on a three-game losing streak, the protégés of coach Martin Knezevic did not hesitate to carry out an aggressive tactic in this rematch.
