The Marikina Shoemasters is scheduled for a head-to-head game against the Pampanga Giant Lanterns at 6:30 P.M. on July 13, 2019 live from the Pasig Sports Complex, Pasig City.
The Shoemasters hopes that tonight will be their lucky night and log its first victory while the Giant Lanterns are eyeing for back-to-back wins when the 2019 MPBL Lakan Cup resumes this evening at the Pasig Sports Complex.
The Marikina squad saw the victory within their reach when they played against the Basilan Steel last July 9.
That match was a close one as both teams don’t want to get behind but in the end, the victory still went to Basilan as they were able to protect their three-point advantage in the last minute of the fourth quarter.
Daryl Pascual had a monstrous double-double performance particularly on crashing the boards as he tallied with 15 points and 17 rebounds.
For the Pampanga group, on the other hand, a week ago they punched a victory against the Bulacan Kuyas, 69-63.
The Giant Lanterns used their pesky defense to disrupt the offense of their opponent in that July 6 match.
They were able to force 17 turnovers against Bulacan which they turned it into 11 points in their favor.
The same formula is expected they’re going to employ and continue to unleash Reil Cervantes and Mark Cruz who had a combined 28 points, six rebounds and ten assists effort.
