The games are now more important than at the beginning of the Regular Season. We may still expect few shocking results in upcoming 5 rounds. Here is the last round review presented by ESL.

The game between Top Four teams took place in Singapore. 3rd ranked Singapore host Singapore Slingers (13-8) lost to first ranked Filipino SM Beermen (17-4) 80-70. It ended at the same time the four-game winning streak of Singapore Slingers. SM Beermen had a 37-22 advantage in offensive rebounds. They looked well-organized offensively handing out 22 assists comparing to just 9 passes made by Singapore Slingers' players. Great defensive blocking was one of the keys in this match when SM Beermen made 12 blocks. American-Puerto Rican center Peter Ramos (222-85) had a double-double by scoring 22 points, 17 rebounds and 4 blocks to lead the charge for the winners and American-Puerto Rican forward Renaldo Balkman (203-84, college: S.Carolina) chipped in 28 points, 8 rebounds and 6 assists during the contest. At the losing side American guard Xavier Alexander (198-88, college: S.Nazarene) responded with a double-double by scoring 18 points and 12 rebounds. Both coaches used bench players which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. SM Beermen maintains first position with 17-4 record. Singapore Slingers at the other side keep the third place with eight games lost. SM Beermen are looking forward to face league's second-placed Formosa D. in Changhua City in the next round and it will be for sure the game of the week. Singapore Slingers will play at home against CLS Knights and are hoping to prove to their fans that the loss was just an accident.
Fifth ranked Vietnamese Saigon Heat (12-9) crushed at home 10th ranked Chinese Zhuhai (2-20) by 32 points 102-70, which is the biggest margin this round. American center Kyle Barone (203-89, college: Idaho) notched a double-double by scoring 31 points and 16 rebounds to lead the effort and DeAngelo Hamilton supported him with 24 points, 6 rebounds and 4 assists (on 11-of-14 shooting from the field). Even a double-double of 18 points and 11 rebounds by center Chen Cai (205-93) did not help to save the game for Zhuhai. Saigon Heat maintains fifth position with 12-9 record. Zhuhai lost sixth consecutive game. They stay dead last with 20 lost games. Saigon Heat will play against Westports MD (#9) in Kuala Lumpur in the next round. Zhuhai will play on the road against the league's second-placed Formosa D. in Changhua City and hopes to get back on the winning track.

In the last two games of round 22 Macau lost to Formosa D. on the opponent's court 84-94. CLS Knights managed to outperform Westports MD in a home game 73-62.
The most impressive stats of the last round was 24 points and 8 rebounds by Maxie Esho of CLS Knights.



Formosa D. - Macau 94-84

Very expected game in Changhua City where 6th ranked Chinese Macau (10-9) was defeated by second ranked Taiwanese Formosa D. (15-6) 94-84. Formosa D. outrebounded Macau 46-31 including a 33-21 advantage in defensive rebounds. They shot the lights out from three nailing 13 long-distance shots on high 54.2 percentage. Formosa D. players were unselfish on offense dishing 21 assists. American guard Malcolm Miller (201-91, college: Southern) notched a double-double by scoring 35 points (!!!), 12 rebounds and 4 assists to lead the effort and the other American import power forward Will Artino (211-92, college: Creighton) supported him with 22 points and 10 rebounds. Four Formosa D. players scored in double figures. Even 42 points (!!!), 8 rebounds, 8 assists and 5 steals by American-Filipino guard Mikh McKinney (184-92, college: Sacramento St.) did not help to save the game for Macau. American power forward Ryan Watkins (206-91, college: Boise St., agency: Two Points) added 15 points and 9 rebounds for lost side. Formosa D. have an impressive five-game winning streak. They maintain second position with 15-6 record having just two points less than leader SM Beermen. Macau at the other side dropped to the seventh place with nine games lost. Formosa D. will play against league's leader SM Beermen in Manila in the next round and it will be for sure the game of the week.

CLS Knights - Westports MD 73-62

Rather predictable result in Surabaya where seventh ranked Indonesian CLS Knights (11-12) defeated 9th ranked Malaysian Westports MD (6-13) 73-62. CLS Knights forced 21 Westports MD turnovers.

His fellow American import Winston Shepard (203-93, college: San Diego St., agency: Slash Sports) added 12 points, 8 rebounds and 6 assists for lost side. Five CLS Knights and four Westports MD players scored in double figures. CLS Knights moved-up to sixth place. Westports MD lost fourth consecutive game.
