The Mighty Sports were successful in sweeping their elimination round assignments and topped the Group B of the 31st Dubai International Basketball Championship.
In their last match in the elims of the tournament, the Philippines representative was slow on getting their rhythm as they battle against the Beirut Sports Club.
Mighty made several turnovers in the first two quarters and their opponent took advantage of the opportunity for them to pile their lead.
Yet, in the second half, Mikey Williams and Renaldo Balkman teamed-up and torched team Beirut with their hot shooting from downtown.
In the third and fourth quarters, Mighty shot 7-of-10 from downtown and most importantly, they were able to turn the tides as they shifted the momentum on their favor.
Williams had a team-high of 22 points while Balkman poured 20 markers. Andray Blatche though not quite in a scoring frenzy night yet the 6-foot-11 naturalized player showcased his all-around game as he delivered 12 points, 13 rebounds, and seven assists.
Tonight or early morning in the Philippines it will be the start of the playoffs and they’ll be facing another Syrian squad, the Al Wathba Sport Club
