THE SAN MIGUEL Beermen forged a three-way logjam for second place in the standings after they routed the Saigon Heat, 85-62, in the 3rd AirAsia ASEAN Basketball League at the Tan Binh Stadium in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam.

The Beermen’s reinforcements, Dalron Johnson and Doug Thomas, led San Miguel’s barrage as they took control of the match from the third period onwards after struggling to put away the Heat in the first half.
