Here are the live scores, updates, and results of the 2022 PBA Commissioner’s Cup between the Phoenix Super LPG Fuelmasters and the Terrafirma Dyip scheduled on November 26, 2022, at 4:30 PM live from the PhilSports Arena in Pasig City, Metro Manila.
The Fuelmasters are eager to halt their losing skid and spark a new winning streak which they did early this season while the Dyip will try to replicate the success they made several days ago and end their second conference in a more positive way.
The squad led by head coach Topex Robinson from the sideline is currently nursing a three-game slump and must be addressed immediately prior to the start of the quarterfinals round.
Though they’re sitting as one of the top eight teams headed to the playoffs, their five victories aren’t security for them to acquire the ticket for the upcoming tournament’s second round.
According to PBA chief statistician Fidel Mangonon III the ideal win count now that the PBA added one more ball club and that’s the visiting Bay Area Dragons to have a secure path to the playoffs is six wins.
“Before kasi 12 teams tayo, but now there are 13 so I think just one more (win) should suffice,” Mangonon said. He also cited a scenario where there will be a tie at five wins.
“Kapag natalo Rain or Shine then there would be five teams with at least seven losses so six wins would be enough to automatically make it through with five possibly playing off,” Mangonon added.
For the Dyip, the last time they went out was against the San Miguel Beermen where they battled minus their hulking import Lester Prosper and was greeted by the Kraken’s return.
Without their import, a potential 50-20 nightly performer got crushed last Wednesday. Juame Tiongson, Javier Gomez De Liano, and Allen Mina kept Terrafirma afloat who are the only three players in the squad of head coach Johnedel Cardel who scored in double figures.
