SINGAPORE - The Singapore Slingers lost at the OCBC Arena for the second straight Asean Basketball League game as they fell 80-89 to title rivals Malaysia Dragons on Sunday.
Centre Reginald Johnson led the visitors with 33 points and 17 rebounds.
The second-placed Dragons improved to 14-4 in the regular season and tied with the league-leading Slingers as the battle to finish as top seeds for the play-offs heats up with two games remaining.
