TANDUAY Alab Pilipinas shoots for its fourth straight win on Wednesday when it faces the Singapore Slingers in the Asean Basketball League at the Filoil Flying V Centre.

The match between Alab Pilipinas and Singapore is at 8 p.m.

Alab Pilipinas evened its record to 3-3 on Sunday after an 89-80 road win over the Slingers at the OCBC Arena.

The two teams now square off on Alab’s home floor with the Philippine squad looking to extend its winning streak to four.

Renaldo Balkman had 26 points and eight rebounds, while Justin Brownlee had 17 points, seven rebounds, and eight assists for Alab.

The former Barangay Ginebra import hit crucial shots in overtime to beat the Slingers in enemy territory after a 78-78 tie in regulation.

The Slingers are eyeing to break not only the winning run of Alab Pilipinas but a two-game losing skid as they go on the road.

Singapore has won on the road this season against Alab, beating the Philippine squad, 97-83, on November 29 at the Sta. Rosa Multi-Purpose Complex.
