MANILA, Philippines—Justin Gutang and  Changwon LG Sakers frustrated Korean Basketball League top seed Anyang KGC, 76-75, at Anyang Gymnasium on Thursday.

Gutang, making most of his minutes off the bench, finished with nine points, a rebound and two steals to help the Sakers beat fellow import Rhenz Abandon and KGC in the battle of the top two teams.


Assem Marei was the high-point man for the LG Sakers with a double-double of 21 points and 16 rebounds to power the squad to a 33-16, just half a game behind the league leaders.


Abando, meanwhile, started for Anyang, which dropped to 34-16, and finished with 10 markers, an assist in a block in 30 minutes of play.
