THE FACTS:
  Trailing by as many as 14 points in the third quarter, the Slingers came up big with a 21-3 run in the last 5 minutes of the quarter and lead for the rest of the game, pulling a 74:63 win over the defending champion Chang Thailand Slammers.

QUOTE I: “I feel great winning the game and it was a well fought and deserved victory but it will be back to training to sharpen our offensive skills for the season.” - Slingers guard Desmond Oh


THE STAT:
Four of the Slingers starters scored double figures in the game. Louis Graham had another big double-double with 23 points and 15 rebounds and Desmond Oh came up big with 16 points, Donald Dulay and Donald Little both finished with 10.

The leading scorer of the night however, is 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.

THE BREAKING POINT: For the opening minutes it seemed that the Slingers have not recovered from their bad shooting night against the Indonesians. That came to an end when Desmond Oh sank a three-pointer five and half minutes into the game.

HOT: The Slingers shot 43% for the game and 50% from beyond the three-point line. 

NOT:
The Slammers missed all nine attempts from the three-point line.

NOTABLE: Desmond Oh hit back to back three pointers in the 4th quarter to increase the Slingers lead to 8 points and helped the Slingers secure their first win of the season.

QUOTE II:
“If we are going to play with this aggression and determination for every game of the season, we can go as far as the final, I say.” - Slingers Center Donald Little.
