It's Renaldo Balkman and Alab Pilipinas' turn to get one win on the homecourt of Thailand's Mono Vampire
Game on Saturday at the Stadium 29 in Bangkok, Thailand
4:30 PM (Philippine time) – Mono Vampire vs Alab Pilipinas
Justin Brownlee will be suited up to play in Game 3 of the 2017-2018 Asean Basketball League Finals.
The only question is if the American reinforcement will be at full strength to help Alab Pilipinas bounce back onto a 2-1 series lead over home team Mono Vampire on Wednesday at the Stadium 29 in Bangkok, Thailand.
The all-important Game 3 in the best-of-five championship round tips off at 4:30 PM (Philippine time) and will air live on Liga, Liga HD and via livestream. It will then be aired on S+A and S+A HD at 7:00 PM.
Brownlee will be good to go after sustaining an apparent leg injury three days ago. That led to the Filipinos falling short and surrendering a 100-103 decision to the visiting Thais.
Whatever the fan favorite import’s health is, Renaldo Balkman and Ray Parks Jr. are nothing but determined to go all-out to make sure, at the very least, the series goes back to Manila.
With other plans, however, is Mono which is coming off a big-time win built on the back of 7-foot-5 Sam Deguara. The titanic reinforcement – along with Jason Brickman, Mike Singletary, and Paul Zamar – will only take full advantage of the home crowd to claim the crucial series lead.
