Danang Dragons pulled off a decisive victory over Ho Chi Minh City Wings in Game 19 of the VBA Premier Bubble Games - Brought to you by NovaWorld Phan Thiet.

Game 19 was the first time this season that Danang Dragons had found themselves competing head-to-head against Ho Chi Minh City Wings.

The Wings went into game 19 with a four-game winning streak under their belt while the Dragons were regarded as the underdogs after posting an even win-loss split in their last four games.

Despite the odds stacked against them, Da Nang took the lead early on and managed to hold it throughout the game thanks to a strong defensive effort that stopped the Wings' stars Makinde London and Jeremy Smith.

While Dragons diehards appreciated their team's athletic performance, it was consistently funny facial expressions by the players that captured the fans’ attentions.
