The Phoenix Pulse Fuel Masters is scheduled for a head-to-head game against the Blackwater Elite at 4:30 P.M. on May 31, 2019 live from the SM Mall of Asia Arena in Pasay City.
The Elite are eyeing to match their franchise best start at 4-0 while the Fuel Masters wanted to start their 2019 PBA Commissioner’s Cup campaign with a victory.
Regardless if he is the savior of Blackwater or not but definitely Bobby Ray Parks Jr., is currently on a tear. His stellar performance didn’t pass the meticulous eyes of the PBA Press Corps as he named as the first Player of the Week of the second conference.
Parks and the rest of the Elite surpassed their early test against two of the winning-est coaches in the league. They have edge coach Norman Black’s Meralco Bolts then later the squad led by coach Tim Cone, the Barangay Ginebra San Miguel.
Their last outing against the Columbian Dyip looks like a smooth sailing for them as they now improved their team chemistry and familiarity with the system of their interim coach Aris Dimaunahan.
Phoenix’s head coach Louie Alas and his entire squad will resume playing this afternoon after their grueling battle against the San Miguel Beermen in the semi-final round of the 2019 PBA Philippine Cup.
Right away, he wanted his troops to bring out their best game considering that they will be battling the current number one squad.
“Tough game! Blackwater is a complete team,” said Alas. “They’re No. 1 in rebounding and points off turnovers.”
“I mean, kailangan namin A-game to compete,” he added.
