Alab Pilipinas re-ignites in ABL after repulsing Macau

Once more in the continuation of their title defense in the 2018-2019 Asean Basketball League, Alab Pilipinas came off a loss, came through in the next game, and came away with a big-time triumph over another contender. Renaldo Balkman’s game-long brilliance coupled with total team effort in the endgame proved to be the difference on Friday at the Filoil Flying V Centre as the Filipinos turned down the lights on visiting Macau, 106-99. The two teams were going at it for majority of the matchup until Balkman, PJ Ramos, and Pao Javelona got together for a 10-1 run bridging the third and fourth quarters that built up an 82-73 edge for the home team. Of course, the Black Bears would only battle back and pulled within two points inside the last six minutes only to see Balkman and Ramos connive yet again, this time alongside Ray Parks Jr., Ethan Alvano, and Caelan Tiongson in a 16-3 answer that re-increased the Alab lead to 106-91. Both the lead and the momentum would remain with them until the final buzzer. In the end, Balkman 37 points, nine rebounds, four steals, and three assists while fellow Puerto Rican reinforcement Ramos contributed his own 21-marker, 14-board double-double. Parks Jr. also did damage with 13 points and 10 assists while point guards Javelona and Alvano merged for 16 markers, 14 dimes, and eight rebounds. This strong showing was nothing but a welcome development as, just five days ago, the Filipinos fell for the second time in the last four games. With the bounce back win, though, the defending champions remained alone atop the leaderboard now at 7-2. On the other hand, Macau dropped to 6-5 in the standings despite the best efforts of Anthony Tucker who had 22 points, 10 assists, and six rebounds to his name. BOX SCORES ALAB PILIPINAS 106 – Balkman 37, Ramos 21, Parks 13, Domingo 13, Javelona 9, Alvano 7, Tiongson 6, Urbiztondo 0, Rosser 0. MACAU BLACK BEARS 99 – Watkins 24, Tucker 22, Yu 20, McKinney 18, Liu 12, King 3, Lai 0. QUARTER SCORES: 20-19, 47-48, 79-73, 106-99. --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @riegogogo......»»
