TNT seeks to keep its unbeaten slate on Friday as it goes up against Alaska in the continuation of the PBA Governors’ Cup at the Ynares Center in Antipolo City.
The KaTropa go up against the Aces at 7 p.m.
TNT seeks to improve on its 6-0 card following its close 116-113 win over Meralco last Saturday. Moreover, the KaTropa are hoping to gain more headway with second-placer NLEX (5-1) just a game behind.
Alaska, meanwhile, ended its woes after capturing its first win last Sunday at the expense of Rain or Shine, 78-71, to raise its mark to 1-5.
The Aces though will have a daunting task of pulling an upset following the terrific performance of KaTropa import KJ McDaniels, who came up with 51 points in the three-point victory over the Bolts.
In the first game, Blackwater aims to win its second consecutive match in its tiff against Meralco at 4:30 p.m.
The Elite, in their last game, defeated reigning champion Magnolia, 95-89, with Marqus Blakely regaining his spot as the team’s import to finish with 21 points and 13 rebounds on their way to a 2-3 record.
The Bolts, at 3-2, are in solo fourth place even with their loss to the KaTropa last weekend, but are hoping to remain in stead with third placer San Miguel, which holds a 4-1 card.
