Davis: Calling off Vampires game is a blessing in disguise


PETALING JAYA: Westports Malaysia Dragons guard Cade Davis sees the postponement of the game against Mono Vampires as a blessing in disguise.

The game, scheduled yesterday, was cancelled due to the Thai teams’ concern over Covid-19 outbreak.

Without the match, the United States import Davis says Dragons will have a longer time to prepare for their crunch match against Singapore Slingers on Friday at Maba Stadium. “It has given us more time to focus on our game against Slingers,” said the 38-year-old.

The head-to-head record between the two teams is 1-1 this year.

Malaysia lost their home game 87-88 against Slingers two weeks ago but made a remarkable comeback when they travelled to Singapore to beat them 79-68 at the Singapore Indoor Stadium last week.

Davis wants to restore the team’s pride in front of their home fans.

“At home, we did not do well defensively and the Slingers seized the opportunity and won the match, which they rightfully deserved,” said Davis.

Slingers’ may be without their powerful centre Anthony McClain as he was seen having some trouble leaving the court at the end of their game in Singapore.

“We noticed he was limping out of the court. It may possibly be good news for us if he is not playing as we struggled to keep pace with this big man.” added Davis.
