Two days after a narrow loss to Lance Stephenson and his Liaoning Flying Leopards, TNT made sure to leave Macau with a nice victory.

Import KJ McDaniels was a beast, scoring 47 points on top of 17 rebounds, two assists, two steals, and two blocks.

RR Pogoy has snapped out his scoring and shooting slump, finishing with 27 points as the top local for the KaTropa. Almond Vosotros scored 12 for TNT.

TNT ended its Macau trip with an even 1-1 mark.

Nick Perkins was the top scorer for Niigata (0-2), going for 34 points while Kei Igarashi was good for 17.
