The Singapore Slingers grabbed their first win after making a huge come back in the second half over the defending champions Chang Thailand Slammers.

The Slingers were down by as many as 14 points in the third quarter before making a 21-3 run in the last 5 minutes of the quarter. Slingers’ guard Desmond Oh came up big with 16 points. Slingers’ import Louis Graham had another big double-double with 23 points and 15 rebounds.

The leading scorer of the night, however, was still Chang Thailand Slammers’ big man Deandre Thomas with 27 points and 8 rebounds, followed closely by Kenneth Walker’s 15 points and 16 rebounds.
