Indonesia Warriors advanced into the Final after they handed the Philippine Patriots the second straight loss in the series. The game without a history.

They dominated on the defensive end, holding Philippine Patriots to just 6 points in second quarter. They outrebounded Philippine Patriots 46-34 including 32 on the defensive glass. Americans were the main players on the court. Power forward Steve Thomas (204-81, college: Middle Tenn.St.) notched a double-double by scoring 19 points, 15 rebounds and 4 assists to lead the effort and forward Evan Brock (204-84, college: Alabama) supported him with 16 points and 11 rebounds. Even 12 points and 9 rebounds by center Nakiea Miller (204-79, college: Iona) did not help to save the game for Philippine Patriots. Swingman Anthony Johnson (197-79, college: La-Lafayette, agency: Interperformances) added 11 points for the guests. Since the result was very predictable, it gave the chance for the coaches to test many bench players which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games.
