On the other end, former De La Salle-College of St. Benilde star Justin Gutang contributed four assists and three rebounds for Changwon, but missed all seven of his attempts in a scoreless stint. 

Two other Filipinos faced off on Sunday as well, with RJ Abarrientos and Ulsan Hyundai Mobis Phoebus getting the better of SJ Belangel and Daegu KOGAS Pegasus, 85-72, at the Dongcheon Gymnasium.

Abarrientos tallied eight points in 24 minutes as Ulsan claimed a third straight victory to improve to 8-4 in the season.

Belangel was limited to two points in eight minutes. Daegu dropped to 3-9 with the result.
