Losers of four of their last five, Alab Pilipinas are in desperate need to get their act together for a playoff push in the 2016-2017 Asean Basketball League.
To do so, however, the Filipinos will need an answer for the biggest riddle in the tournament.
League-leading Hong Kong travels to Sta. Rosa, Laguna to try and re-assert its mastery over Alab on Sunday at the Sta. Rosa Arena.
The Philippines defends its homecourt against the title favorites beginning at 8:00 PM and all of the action will be broadcast LIVE on ABS-CBN S+A Channel 23 as well as streamed LIVE.
The Eastern Long Lions, standing at 14-2, needs just one more win to clinch the top-seed in as well as homecourt advantage throughout the tournament.
Just as determined, however, are 9-8 Alab who want nothing more than a much-needed win to get them back on track.
