There are only two more rounds left in the Regular Season in ASEAN League. Here is the last round review presented by ESL.

The most surprising game was a loss of top-ranked Hong Kong Hong Kong ELL (12-3) in Nanhai on Friday night. Visitors were defeated by fifth ranked Chinese Chongson (10-5) 94-85. It ended at the same time the three-game winning streak of Hong Kong ELL. Chongson made 20-of-25 free shots (80.0 percent) during the game. They outrebounded Hong Kong ELL 53-33 including a 38-20 advantage in defensive rebounds. Chongson looked well-organized offensively handing out 23 assists. American center Justin Howard (209-81, college: Mercer) had a double-double by scoring 22 points, 20 rebounds and 4 blocks to lead the charge for the winners and American-Filipino guard Mikh McKinney (184-92, college: Sacramento St.) chipped in 30 points, 7 rebounds and 6 assists during the contest. American guard Marcus Elliott (191-84, college: Louisiana Tech) responded with 24 points and 5 rebounds. Chongson have a solid three-game winning streak. They moved-up to fourth place. Hong Kong ELL at the other side still keeps top position with three games lost. Chongson are looking forward to face bottom-ranked Formosa D. (#9) in Changhua City in the next round where they are favorite. Hong Kong ELL will play at home against the league's second-placed Mono Vampire (#2) and it may be a tough game between close rivals.
Important game to mention about took place in Singapore. Eighth ranked Indonesian CLS Knights (4-12) saved a 1-point victory on the road edging higher ranked Singapore Singapore Slingers (10-8) 65-64 on Sunday evening. It ended at the same time the three-game winning streak of Singapore Slingers. Americans were the main players on the court. Center Brian Williams (208-87, college: Tennessee) notched a double-double by scoring 10 points, 10 rebounds and 6 assists (was perfect 8-for-8 from the free throw line) to lead the effort and Shane Edwards supported him with 17 points and 8 rebounds. Even a double-double of 16 points and 21 rebounds by power forward Christien Charles (216-81, college: Villanova) did not help to save the game for Singapore Slingers. Both coaches used bench players in such tough game. CLS Knights maintains eighth position with 4-12 record. Singapore Slingers at the other side dropped to the fifth place with eight games lost. CLS Knights will play against higher ranked Westports MD (#7) in Kuala Lumpur in the next round and it may be quite challenging game. Singapore Slingers will play on the road against Formosa D. in Changhua City and hope to get back on the winning track.
Very important is a road loss of third ranked Filipino Alab Pilipinas (11-6) against fifth ranked Chinese Chongson (10-5) on Sunday night.

The best player for the winners was Justin Howard who had a double-double by scoring 25 points and 16 rebounds (on 11-of-14 shooting from the field). Renaldo Balkman produced 29 points and 8 rebounds for the guests. Alab Pilipinas' coach rotated eleven players in this game, but that didn't help. Chongson have a solid three-game winning streak. They moved-up to fourth place. Loser Alab Pilipinas keep the third position with six games lost. Chongson will meet bottom-ranked Formosa D. (#9) in the next round where they are favorite. Alab Pilipinas will play against Saigon Heat (#6) and hope to secure a win.
Very important is a road loss of second ranked Thailand Mono Vampire (12-6) against fifth ranked Chinese Chongson (10-5) on Wednesday night. Visiting Mono Vampire was defeated by Chongson in Nanhai 113-95. It ended at the same time the three-game winning streak of Mono Vampire. Anthony Tucker orchestrated the victory by scoring 35 points (!!!), 8 rebounds, 7 assists and 4 steals. Chongson have a solid three-game winning streak. They moved-up to fourth place.
