THE Singapore Slingers may have won the game against Alab Pilipinas, 90-80, on Wednesday at the San Juan Arena in the Asean Basketball League.
Double-doubles from imports Renaldo Balkman (24 points, 12 rebounds) and Justin Brownlee (16 points, 11 rebounds) weren't enough to stretch Alab's three-game winning streak. On the other hand, Fil-Canadian AJ Mandani (23 points, 11 in the final seven minutes.) and Singapore reinforcement Chris Charles (29 points, 15 rebounds) took over the final quarter to redeem themselves from last Sunday's loss to the Philippine squad.
Still, there's one battle Alab clearly won over the Slingers, and that's in the sneaker wars. See for yourself.
