It has been a shaky start for the Meralco Bolts in the East Asia Super League (EASL), as they have dropped their first two assignments.

Their latest defeat was dealt by the New Taipei Kings, led by former NBA star Jeremy Lin, last Wednesday, 97-92, in Taiwan.

Still, Meralco put up a tough fight, displaying grit and relentlessness in the final frame, which the team could pick up a lot of positives from heading into the next game. 

A relatively strong Filipino crowd in Taiwan also boosted the Bolts' energy. One face, however, was perhaps the most familiar to them.

After the game, Chris Newsome and Chris Banchero had a brief reunion with former PBA star Jay Washington, who was on hand to watch the game at the New Taipei Xinzhuang Gymnasium.
