For the second time in three days, Alab Pilipinas and Westports Malaysia Dragons will duke it out in the 2016-2017 Asean Basketball League.
Only this time, the Filipinos will not have a homecourt advantage.
Alab travels to Cyberjaya in Malayia to hunt for a third win in a row at the expense of the Dragons on Sunday at the House of Champions.
The rematch of the game the Philippines won last Friday tips-off at 2:30 and it will be streamed LIVE on and will be broadcast at 8:00 PM on ABS-CBN S+A Channel 23.
Alab leaned on their superior depth to dispatch Malaysia, 87-79, just three days ago. That win sent them streaking right to 8-4 – just behind 10-4 Singapore and closer to 9-2 Hong Kong.
The Dragons have had a dismal title defense and stand at 2-10. Still, they are the defending champions and are nothing but determined to prove they have the heart of a champion.
