Here is the last round review presented by ESL.

The most important game in the last round took place in Surabaya between second ranked Taiwanese Formosa D. (8-5) and seventh ranked Indonesian CLS Knights (5-7) on Wednesday night. Formosa D. was crushed by CLS Knights on the road 73-99. CLS Knights had a 37-24 advantage in offensive rebounds. They shot the lights out from three sinking 18 long-distance shots on high 54.5 percentage. CLS Knights looked well-organized offensively handing out 29 assists comparing to just 13 passes made by Formosa D.'s players. It was a good game for American guard Doug Herring-Jr (191-87, college: Utica) who led his team to a victory with a double-double by scoring 15 points, 11 assists and 4 steals. Singapore guard Wong-Wei Long (186-88) contributed with 18 points, 5 rebounds and 6 assists for the winners. American guard Malcolm Miller (201-91, college: Southern) replied with a double-double by scoring 14 points and 10 rebounds for Formosa D.The winner was already known earlier in the game, so both coaches allowed to play the bench players saving starting five for next games. CLS Knights have a solid three-game winning streak. They moved-up to sixth place. Formosa D. at the other side dropped to the third position with five games lost. CLS Knights are looking forward to face league's leader Singapore Slingers at home in the next round and they do not belong to the favorites in that game. Formosa D. will play against Hong Kong ELL and is hoping to win this game.
Another interesting game for Hong Kong Hong Kong ELL (5-9) which played on the court of 5th ranked Chinese Macau (7-4). Eighth ranked Hong Kong ELL crushed hosts 114-90. Worth to mention a great performance of Maltese center Samuel Deguara (223-91) who helped to win the game recording a double-double by scoring 33 points (!!!) and 17 rebounds (on 14-of-17 shooting from the field) and Marcus Elliott who added 29 points, 12 rebounds and 6 assists during the contest. Hong Kong ELL's coach felt very confident that he used entire bench which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. The best for the losing side was American power forward Ryan Watkins (206-91, college: Boise St., agency: Two Points) with a double-double by scoring 28 points, 11 rebounds and 4 assists. Hong Kong ELL moved-up to seventh place. Macau at the other side dropped to the fourth position with four games lost. Hong Kong ELL will play against higher ranked Formosa D. (#3) in Changhua City in the next round and it may be quite challenging game. Macau will play against Zhuhai and hopes to get back on the winning track.

In the last two games of round 12 Westports MD beat Mono Vampire on the road 94-86. SM Beermen won against Macau on its own court 106-99.
The most impressive performance of 12th round was 37 points (!!!) and 9 rebounds by Renaldo Balkman of SM Beermen.
