The Singapore Slingers were able to overcome Chris Commons (204-F-84, college: USC Aiken)'' 37 points effort, beating Brunei Barracudas 81 74 to earn their first road victory of the season in Wednesday nights AirAsia ABL solo showdown.

Slingers season leading scorer Avenido Leonidez (186-G) was quiet for the whole night, but able to shine during crucial moment as his 3 pointer broke a 67 tied and triggered a 12 2 run to give the Slingers 79 70 cushion with 1:46 left in the game. Avenido scored 8 points during the decisive run and finished with 15 points 5 rebounds & 3/5 from downtown.

Slingers inside combo carried the offense all game long before Avenido last quarter heroic, with Kyle Jeffers having another double-double of 17 points 13 rebounds, and Skinner Marcus (201-F-86, college: Wisc.-Milwaukee) finished with 9 rebounds and a team high 25 points.

Barracudas Chris Commons put on a scoring show after a 2-points first quarter performance, scoring 16 of 21 Barracudas points in the second quarter. The hot hands continue as Commons notched an AirAsia ABL season high 37 points but was unable to lead the Barracudas to another home win. He also had 8 rebounds and 3 block shots. Ramsey Williams (178-G-80, college: Hawaii) finished with 15 points 7 rebounds and 5 assists, Chester Tolomia (191-G-80) added 11 points 7 rebounds but misfired from 3 points line, shooting 1/9.

This tightly contested game featuring a total of 13 ties and 11 lead changes. The scores were gluing after the Barracudas hit back a 9 0 run to answer a 12 4 run by the Slingers which start the game on a high note. The Barracudas were trailing 15-16 after the first quarter, 36 38 during the half and 55 56 at the end of third, but not good enough for them to make a comeback and secure a victory.

With this victory, the Slingers solidify their position on the standings ladder, sitting at third place with a 4 3 mark, whereas the Barracudas just missed an opportunity to cause a three-way tie with Slingers and the Westports KL Dragons. They are still sitting on the fifth place with 2 5, edging the 2 5 Satria Muda BritAma with head to head record.

Both teams will have uphill battle on their home ground this weekend, with Barracudas taking the currently No.2 Chang Thailand Slammers, and Slingers looking to revenge a 59 62 earlier defeat to the No.1 Philippine Patriots.
