KUALA LUMPUR – This Wednesday’s game is the toughest game that the Westports Malaysia Dragons will encounter up to date. Our home team will play Alab Pilipinas at the Dragons’ Den (MABA Stadium) at 8:30PM on the 9th of January. This would be the third home game played by the Dragons in 7 days, it’s a quick turn-around that isn’t ideal for the team but the team will have to make do with pre-game and post-game preparations for their well-being. They will only have one day to rest up, practice on Tuesday and prepare for their game the following night. Currently number one in the 2018-2019 Regular Season Standings, the Philippine team have a winning streak of 5 games with 0 losses – they are the only team without a loss. Made up of veteran ABL players such as two-time regular season (season 7 & 8) Local MVP and Finals MVP (season 8) Bobby Ray Parks Jr., last season’s defensive player of the year Renaldo Balkman. Together with their 2.22cm (7’3”) tall World Import Peter John “PJ” Ramos who is averaging at 18.8 points per game, 11.8 rebounds per game and 4.2 assists per game, Alab Pilipinas is a real contender on both ends of the court. “There’s obviously a lot of similarities between Deguara and Ramos,” head coach Jamie Pearlman said. “It’ll be another 40-minute battle against these giants so we have to take a look back at our game against Hong Kong to see where was the deficiency.” Dragons are now 7th place with 2 wins and 3 losses behind 6th seed Hong Kong of 6 wins and 4 losses. Following this game would be another one on Sunday afternoon (2:30PM) against Zhuhai Wolf Warriors which would be Dragons’ last home game in January.
