The Alaska Aces is scheduled for a head-to-head game against the NLEX Road Warriors at 7:00 P.M. on March 13, 2019 live from the Smart Araneta Coliseum.
Both the Aces and the Road Warriors are looking to avenge their respective last outings and improve their chances to make it to the post-conference games.
Marion Magat will face his former teammates for the first time after getting waived by Alaska in the off-season.
The former National University Bulldogs standout is having a renewed career in the PBA after he got hired by coach Yeng Guiao.
Magat’s tandem with Poy Erram formed the Road Warriors dangerous in the post both in the offensive and the defensive end.
However, without the services of Kevin Alas and Kiefer Ravena to man the backcourt, NLEX collected many defeats this conference.
This is most likely the area where coach Alex Compton and his entire Aces will try to exploit.
Alaska’s hope to finish the elimination round as one of the top two squads is very much alive but the road going to that is not easy.
The Aces needs to sweep its remaining five games and standing in their way are the San Miguel Beermen, TNT KaTropa, Meralco Bolts, NorthPort Batang Pier and their tonight’s opponent, the Road Warriors.
