The usually intense competition between the Singapore Slingers and the Westports Malaysia Dragons ended up being a beatdown as the home team was simply to good for the debuting visitors at the OCBC Arena.
The offense of the Slingers flowed freely from the start and it was led by their long-time world import Xavier Alexander.
The talented ring devastated the debuting Dragons not with his scoring but with his playmaking as he dished out 17 assists in the game. He also added 17 points and eight rebounds to his tally. Singapore was a plus-56 in the 34 minutes and 34 seconds that Alexander spent on the floor.
For his huge performance against their neighbors and rivals, Alexander was named Player of the Week.
