Game on Wednesday at the Filoil Flying V Centre
8:00 PM – Alab Pilipinas vs Westports Malaysia Dragons
Alab Pilipinas is seeking their very first win run in the 2017-2018 Asean Basketball League.
Good thing for them then that now have two new reinforcements in tow.
Fan favorite Justin Brownlee and volatile talent Renaldo Balkman are all set to play for the first time for the Filipinos when they take on visiting Westports Malaysia on Wednesday at the Filoil Flying V Centre.
Brownlee and Balkman are eager to help the Philippines get back-to-back wins starting at 8:00 PM and all of the action will be on S+A, S+A HD, and via livestream.
Brownlee, who made his name for Ginebra, and Balkman, who got known as an import for Petron (now San Miguel), replace Ivan Johnson and Reggie Okoso who were only able to power Alab to one win after four games.
Ray Parks Jr. and company are only hoping that the arrival of two new reinforcements will now lead to a big push towards the playoffs.
Planning to turn then back, though, are the Dragons who have suffered two straight setbacks following a season-opening win.
