After 4 rounds played we can already see who rules in the ASEAN League and who belongs to weaker ones. Here is the last round review presented by ESL.

The most exciting game of round 4 in the ASEAN League took place in Saigon. This derby game ended with only one-point home defeat of their biggest opponent Vietnamese Saigon Heat (3-0) to top-ranked Taiwanese Formosa D. (3-0) 86-85 in the game for the first place. It ended at the same time the three-game winning streak of Saigon Heat. It was a key game for the top position in the league. Formosa D. dominated down low during the game scoring 56 of its points in the paint compared to Saigon Heat's 24. Formosa D. had a 36-25 advantage in offensive rebounds. Worth to mention a great performance of American power forward Will Artino (211-92, college: Creighton) who helped to win the game recording a double-double by scoring 29 points and 12 rebounds (on 13-of-16 shooting from the field) and the other American import forward Tevin Glass (206-94, college: E.Tenn.St.) who added 16 points and 10 rebounds during the contest. At the losing side Canadian Murphy Burnatowski (196-91, college: Colgate) responded with 39 points (!!!) and 5 rebounds. Formosa D. have a solid three-game winning streak. They maintain first position with 3-0 record, which they share with Saigon H. Formosa D. is looking forward to face Hong Kong ELL (#6) at home in the next round where they are favorite. Saigon Heat will play against Macau (#4) and is hoping to prove to their fans that this time they can win.
Very important is a road loss of third ranked Chinese Macau (3-2) against fourth ranked Singapore Singapore Slingers (3-1) on Friday night. Visiting Macau was defeated by Singapore Slingers in Singapore 98-88. The winners were led by American power forward John Fields (205-88, college: Tennessee) who scored that evening 32 points, 9 rebounds and 7 assists (on 15-of-18 shooting from the field) and Xavier Alexander supported him with 16 points, 9 rebounds and 8 assists. Even 26 points by American-Filipino guard Mikh McKinney (184-92, college: Sacramento St.) did not help to save the game for Macau. Singapore Slingers moved-up to third place. Macau at the other side dropped to the fourth position with two games lost. Singapore Slingers will have a break next round, and it should allow them to practice more before next game. Macau will play at home against the league's second-placed Saigon Heat (#2) and it may be a tough game between close rivals.
Hong Kong Hong Kong ELL has registered their first victory this season after three consecutive losses. The win is especially important as it came on the road game in , where they defeated Chinese Zhuhai (0-3) 88-76 on Saturday. Eric Ferguson fired 29 points, 9 rebounds and 5 assists for the winners. Chen Cai produced 17 points, 7 rebounds and 7 assists for lost side. Both coaches used bench players which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. Hong Kong ELL maintains sixth position with 1-3 record. It was Zhuhai's third loss in a row. They still close the standings with three games lost. Hong Kong ELL will meet league's leader Formosa D. in the next round and they do not belong to the favorites in that game. Zhuhai will play against Westports MD (#8) and hopes to get finally their first victory.
The game in Surabaya was also worth to mention about. Top-ranked Vietnamese Saigon Heat (3-0) played at the court of 5th ranked Indonesian CLS Knights (1-2). Saigon Heat defeated CLS Knights 76-64. It was a very good performance for Kyle Barone who helped to win the game recording a double-double by scoring 24 points, 18 rebounds and 5 assists. CLS Knights' coach rotated ten players in this game, but that didn't help. Saigon Heat have a solid three-game winning streak. They keep a position of league leader, which they share with Formosa D. CLS Knights at the other side keep the fifth place with two games lost. Saigon Heat's next round opponent will be Macau (#4) on the road.

In the last game of round 4 CLS Knights lost to Macau on the opponent's court 110-117.
