MANILA, Philippines—Ray Parks returned and Alab Pilipinas continued its winning ways after a 111-87 whipping of Saigon Heat in the 2019 Asean Basketball League Sunday night at Lapu-Lapu Sports Complex in Cebu.

Parks, the reigning two-time Local MVP, collected 23 points and seven assists in his first game back after missing three games due to a groin injury.
