Ho Chi Minh City Wings’ win over Hanoi Buffaloes was accented by a series of entertaining high-fives between Tran Van Trung and Makinde London as the duo carried their team to victory in Game 24 of the VBA Premier Bubble Games - Brought to you by Novaworld Phan Thiet.

Wings Coach Erik Olson moved Trung into the starting lineup for their matchup against the Buffaloes – a move that clearly paid off in the form of a decisive victor for Ho Chi Minh City.

Trung – numbered 98 – came out of his shell early on in the third quarter when he stole a pass from the Buffaloes’ Anthony Moody meant for Mike Bell and finished off the play with a beautiful layup. 

The play caused Buffaloes’ coach Eric Weissling to call for a timeout to reevaluate his team’s strategy.

Meanwhile, London spent a good portion of the game forcing steals from Moody and shutting down many of the Buffaloes’ offensive drives.

Trung and London showed an impressive amount of teamwork throughout the game despite having had only a limited amount of time to practice together.
