MANILA, Philippines — Justin Brownlee put up another superb performance as he powered Tanduay Alab Pilipinas to a 92-87 victory over the CLS Knights Indonesia in the ASEAN Basketball League at the GOR CLS Kertajaya in Indonesia.

Brownlee erupted for 36 points, including 18 in the first quarter, and capped his effort with eight rebounds, seven assists and three steals to lead Alab to their fourth win in the last five games and fifth overall against four losses.

Renaldo Blackman backed Brownlee with 17 points, 13 boards, two assists and two steals for Alab, who dealt the Knights their sixth straight defeat against a win.

The hosts actually kept the game close after Brownlee’s first quarter explosion and stayed within striking distance of Alab in the early going of the last period.

But former PBA and Gilas veteran Dondon Hontiveros hit a triple to spark the run which the Knights had failed to neutralize.

After a grueling two-week schedule, Alab will get a one-week rest before plunging back into action against the Saigon Heat on Jan. 28 at the CIS Arena in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam.
