Basketball Respek beat Tigers to get first CBL win

Team Respek bounced back from last week’s defeat by Mekong Tigers to record their first win in the Cambodian Basketball League at the expense of Pinoy Rhythm 52-44 at the Olympic Stadium indoor arena on Wednesday, while one of the market fancies ALLN Supermen made it three wins in a row after setting aside Smart Dragons 70-45 the previous day.

Dragons are yet to find their rhythm and this was their third consecutive defeat thus putting their chances of making it to the play offs in doubt

Pinoy trail the 11-team league field without a win in three outings.

Team Respeck led 16-3 in the first quarter but a good fight back in the second quarter saw Pinoy record a 17-14 recovery in the second.

Meanwhile, this weekend’s games have been moved to weekdays due to the non availability of the Indoor Arena.
