    The Hotshots won over the Dyip, 100-92, thanks to an impressive showing by import Nick Rakocevic, who racked up 45 points and 25 rebounds.

    Magnolia coach Chito Victolero described Rakocevic as “another Calvin Abueva” with the energy that he provides on the court.

    Rakocevic will finally be teaming up with Abueva on Saturday as the Hotshots forward is slated to play after missing the game against Terrafirma on Wednesday.

    The FiberXers also won impressively over Terrafirma, 124-110, last Friday in head coach Aldin Ayo’s debut in the PBA.

      Converge has been in the news before the match with reports of an impending trade that will enable the FiberXers to acquire Jerrick Balanza and Kevin Ferrer from NorthPort for Allyn Bulanadi and Tyrus Hill.

      The Dragons aim to stay unbeaten after two straight impressive victories. After a 46-point victory over Blackwater, Bay Area defeated NorthPort, 105-104, on a buzzer-beater by Myles Powell last week.
