The San Miguel Pale Pilsen Alab Pilipinas is scheduled for a head-to-head game against the Saigon Heat at 5:00 P.M. on March 24, 2019 live from the CIS Arena, Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam.
Alab Pilipinas are looking to snap its three-game losing skid when the 9th ASEAN Basketball League resumes in Vietnam.
The losing slump of the Philippines national team started against Formosa Dreamers in Taiwan where Renaldo Balkman is absent due to an injury.
He got a bloody nose in their earlier game against the Macau Black Bears but was still able to log another win.
Then on March 15 and 17 absorbed back-to-back defeats as coach Jimmy Alapag several key players were unavailable to play due to injuries.
One of those defeats came from Alab home-court, their lone home loss of the season.
As the team Philippines entering to its last elimination round game, will coach Alapag gamble to play Balkman if he’s available just to give the squad a winning mentality going to the playoffs or will he continue to sit out.
The third-game losing slump of Alab is currently their longest this season and was dropped from number one spot by the Dreamers.
