Alab Pilipinas dominated by Singapore Slingers as Alexander, Elliott combine for 50
The Singapore Slingers’ tandem of Xavier Alexander and Marcus Elliott proved to be too much to handle as San Miguel Alab Pilipinas succumbed with a 64-85 defeat in the 2019-2020 ASEAN Basketball League season Sunday at the OCBC Arena.
Alexander had his handprints all over the game as he finished with a mind-boggling near quadruple-double of 31 points, 10 rebounds, 12 assists, and 8 steals while shooting 11/14 from the free throw line.
Elliott added 19 points and shot 5/11 from long distance. Their 3rd world import Anthony McClain provided 18 points, 13 boards, and 7 blocked shots as the Slingers totally manhandled Alab.
The home side pulled away in the 3rd quarter when they out-scored the Philippine visitors, 24-11.
It was a collective off night for Alab, shooting only 34% from the field overall.
Sam Deguara was the only double-digit scorer with his 14 markers and 9 boards, while Nick King was limited to 9 points on 4/13 shooting although he had 10 rebounds.
Jeremiah Gray and Jason Brickman had 9 and 8, respectively. Khalif Wyatt had 7 points in over 26 minutes.
With the loss, Alab dropped to 5-3 in the team standings.
