After a nail-biting finish, Team Singapore took the men's basketball bronze medal with a 54-49 win over Thailand at the OCBC Arena. 

Team Singapore was without captain Desmond Oh and forward Lim Shengyu and trailed Thailand 31-25 at half-time but the boys in red never gave up.

Team Singapore, bronze medallists two years ago in Myanmar, began the fourth quarter 41-38 down but a combination of strong three-point shooting and excellent defence allowed them to triumph.

Larry Liew top scored with 18 points, while Russel Low and Delvin Goh were key to the defence.
