TAGUIG--Coach Jimmy Alapag believes Alab Pilipinas is up for an uphill task this upcoming week in the ABL.

Alab will fly to Ho Chi Minh to face Saigon on Sunday night before going back to Sta. Rosa City to host Nanhai on Wednesday night.

"We got a big week for us playing [Saigon] on the road and having a quick turnaround against Nanhai," said Alapag.

For now, his focus is on the Heat.

Despite Saigon losing its previous assignment, Alapag remains wary about the Vietnamese side especially that it is the team that dealt both Nanhai and Eastern their first loss of the season.

"They are the best offensive team in the league. It is really important for us on the defensive standpoint to limit them," he continued. "They basically play 5-out and make you guard them so we have our hands full."
