The Singapore Slingers served up a strong win against CLS Knights with a final tally of 95-76 on Sunday (February 3), breaking their seven-game streak.
Riding on the momentum of their last win, Neo Beng Siang's men sported strong teamwork and came out aggressive, maintaining their lead against the visitors throughout the match.
Slingers' forward and player of the match Jerran Young (#12) proved unstoppable, coming in with an ABL career high of 36 points - including 5 triples.

On the other side of the fence, the Knights' captain Wong Wei Lun's return against his former squad turned out to be mediocre, with his team unable to close up the 27-point gap.
"I'm really happy with how we did today. We started out strong and stuck together the whole game, which is really good. Moving forward we just need to stay focused every game and play together, as a team," said head coach Neo Beng Siang.
