NLEX looks to close in on the leaders as the Road Warriors go up against Columbian in the PBA Governors’ Cup at the Ynares Center.
The match is at 4:30 p.m.
The Road Warriors are playing their first game since they won in Dubai in dramatic fashion, beating Barangay Ginebra in overtime, 113-111, to take a 4-1 record. A win over the Dyip will give the Road Warriors the solo second spot, one game behind unbeaten TNT (6-0).
Despite their impressive start, the Road Warriors brought in former NBA player Manny Harris to replace Olu Ashaolu. Harris had stops in Cleveland, LA Lakers and Dallas Mavericks.
Columbian, meanwhile, is also eyeing its second win. The Dyip beat Blackwater, 102-90, last week.
In the second game, Magnolia seeks to regain its winning ways as it goes up against Blackwater at 7 p.m.
The Hotshots share fourth place with Meralco and Columbian, but they are coming off a 90-89 loss to San Miguel last Friday.
