Philippines, Hong Kong fight over solo second in ABL

Already with victories versus the league-leaders and the defending champions, Alab Pilipinas are casting their line for another big fish in the 2016 Asean Basketball League. Ray Parks Jr. and company are in Hong Kong for their first meeting with the Eastern Long Lions scheduled on Sunday. The Philippines pits its three-game winning streak against a Hong Kong side determined to get back on track at 8:00 PM. All of the action will be broadcast LIVE on ABS-CBN S+A Channel 23 as well as streamed LIVE on sports.abs-cbn.com/livestream/abl. Since the arrival of American reinforcements Sampson Carter and James Hughes, the Filipinos have yet to taste defeat.

Stinging off another loss at the hands of Singapore, they are banking on homecourt advantage to help them avoid a losing slide. --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @riegogogo. .....»»
