Alab Pilipinas out for revenge against surging Saigon

Now in the thick of things in the 2016-2017 Asean Basketball League, Alab Pilipinas has gone 2-2 in its last four outings.

One of those losses was an upset at the hands of bottom-feeding Saigon.

The Heat want nothing more than a repeat when the Filipinos visit their home court at the CIS Arena in Ho Chi Minh on Sunday.

On the other hand, the Philippines try to build much-needed momentum beginning at 5:00 and it will be streamed LIVE and will be broadcast at 8:00 PM on ABS-CBN S+A Channel 23.

In their last four outings, Alab boast of wins against Saigon and Singapore. However, they also suffered losses against Saigon and Malaysia, two teams at the bottom half of the leaderboard, to fall back to an 8-5 standing.

Things have gone much better for the Heat in their last four games where they have gone 3-1. Now at 4-8 overall, another upset will catapult them onto the top four.
