Game on Monday at the Stadium 29 in Bangkok, Thailand
4:30 PM (Philippine time) – Mono Vampire vs Alab Pilipinas
Alab Pilipinas has two chances to claim the championship in the 2017-2018 Asean Basketball League.
The Filipinos have no plans whatsoever of using them both, however, and will go all-out to finish the job up against home team Mono Vampire in Game 4 on Monday at the Stadium 29 in Bangkok.
Leading the best-of-five series 2-1, the Philippines just needs one more win and they try to get just that starting at 4:30 PM (Philippine time). All of the action, of course, will be on S+A, S+A HD, and livestream.
Ray Parks Jr., Justin Brownlee, and Renaldo Balkman all came to play two days ago and carried Alab to a 99-93 win.
That same Big 3 – together with contributions from the likes of Lo Domingo and Josh Urbiztondo, of course – will have to come through once more if they are to win their country’s first title since 2013.
As determined as they are, though, are Jason Brickman, Sam Deguara, Mike Singletary, Paul Zamar, and the rest of the Thai team who are laser-focused on stealing the win and sending the series back to the Philippines.
