Patriots and Warriors vie in CBL showdown

Top-ranked Alaxan FR Patriots are riding high this season with a seven-game unbeaten run in the Cambodian Basketball League sponsored by the Western Union and Coca Cola.

Looking eagerly ahead to the next months’ play-offs, the Patriots are bent on using tomorrow’s game against Extra Joss Warriors from 2pm at the Beeline Arena to sharpen their court craft and keep that rousing form going.

But, before the clash with the Warriors, the Patriots will be catching up with a held-over game against Galaxy tonight at 8pm.

While the Patriots have been on a roll, the Warriors have slipped badly after winning the first four games this season.

Though their seat in the play-offs looks quite secure, the Warriors will be anxious to grab a few positives from this tough game.

In the early 10am slot, second ranked IRB the Lord, whose only loss this season was to the Patriots, take on CCPL Heat, who went down rather tamely to Pate 310 in their previous start.

The Heat will be banking on Panha Sovann to deliver the goods.

Phnom Penh Dragons and NSK Dream will take to the court at 4pm with at least one key player missing from their line-ups.

While Eric Laughlin, who has moved base from Cambodia to Japan will not be available for the Dragons, Dream will be without Chin Chandara, who is nursing an ankle injury.

Only pride is at stake at 6pm as the Post Buffaloes meet the Cellcard Eagles, with both sides’ play-off hopes already dashed.

In a late Tuesday evening game, NSK Dream defeated the Post Buffaloes 67-59 to keep their own play-off chances alive.

The best performances for Dream came from Reazzy (23 points) and Ravuth Meas (18 points). For Buffaloes, Jay Rodden (26 points) and Joshal Khiev (17 points) did well.
