The Tropang Giga will try to make a bounce-back after getting whipped by the Converge FiberXers just last Wednesday while the Fuelmasters don’t want to end their winning streak yet extend it to five in a row.
Seems like TNT has an early preparation for Sunday’s main event match as their tonight’s opponent is somehow having similar basketball skills to what they faced last October 28 at the Smart Araneta Coliseum.
Like Converge FiberXers, the squad led by head coach Topex Robinson also has its own young but reliable players in its lineup led by Tyler Tio and Enchong Serrano.
Talk ‘N Text head coach Chot Reyes already determined what went wrong with their game against the Fuelmasters and that’s on their defense. Converge demonstrated ala Golden State Warriors type of offense where almost fifty percent of their points came from the three-point territory.
“We got our ass kicked. Converge shot very well – 21 three-point shots – and we can’t win games if we allow our opponents to shoot the threes. Their three-point shooting plus their second-chance points (17) were the difference,” said Reyes.
Yet, there are still some advantages from that loss and that is they executed their offensive strategy well and that might be still one of their tactics to keep them in contention.
“Our offense wasn’t bad, we scored 117, shot 50 percent and we had only 10 turnovers. But our defense, really, left a lot to be desired,” he added.
Meanwhile, for Phoenix, they’re really like that mystical flying creature that after it dies it’ll reborn out of the ashes. The Fuelmasters started this conference with three straight defeats and then suddenly they found themselves almost at the top four of the standings.
