Three games with a huge bearing on playoff seats are featured tomorrow in the Angkor Beer Cambodian Basketball League at the Olympic Stadium Indoor Arena.

First up will be Sabay Tiger Mosquitoes against Mekong Tigers in a game of critical importance for both sides.

Beset with injury problems, the Mosquitoes have slithered down to one defeat after another following their opening round victory and are now occupying the first non-playoff seat in the ninth position.

Taming the Tigers could be a tall order but nothing but a win could keep the Mosquitoes’ hopes alive.

After winning the first four games of the season, the Tigers lost the next three in a row to top order teams by short margins and desperately need a win to restore their confidence.

Davies Paints are on a roll with Aimar Sabayo in top nick, playing his part in the team’s six-game winning streak. The team will run into a youthful all-Cambodian NSK Dream, who took the prize scalp of Pate 310 against all expectations and odds.

The victory has now placed NSK Dream in an eighth position they ought to retain if they are to make the next grade.

Several players from GL Concrete played last year for Pate 310, but the two have taken completely different paths so far this season. Concrete are at the bottom of the pile without a win while Pate, after briefly enjoying the lead in the standings, are now a clear third. The rivalry could be intense but it is Concrete’s call to show that they are better than where they currently lie.

Tomorrow’s Schedule
Sabay Tiger Mosquitoes v Mekong Tigers – 2pm
NSK Dream v Davies Paints 4pm
GL Concrete v Pate 310 – 6pm
