The Meralco Bolts is scheduled for a head-to-head game against the Blackwater Elite at 4:30 P.M. on October 5, 2018 live from Smart Araneta Coliseum.
The Bolts will try to climb and end their three-game losing skid when PBA resumes this afternoon while the Elite are looking for a quick bounce back game.
Coach Norman Black and his entire Meralco Bolts will try to use the experience they gained from their recent campaign in the just concluded 2018 FIBA Asia Champions Cup.
Meralco finished at fourth place despite of their slow start in that said tournament. One thing is for certain, back-to-back Governors’ Cup Best Import Allen Durham got awaken in Thailand and his capability like the smashing “Hulk” will be seen against Blackwater.
Although Jared Dillenger and Ranidel de Ocampo still in the injured list but this time back in the PBA Chris Newsome and Cliff Hodge will return to their duty.
With their franchise best start at 4-0, the Blackwater Elite has turned the heads of many basketball fans as they’re probably one of the surprising teams this third conference.
Coach Bong Ramos and his troops would want a quick bounce back and return to their winning ways.
“We prepared for them and we’ll push to execute our game plan and hopefully we can bounce back and get that W,” stated Ramos.
Currently, they’re just a game behind from the current leaders, the Barangay Ginebra San Miguel and the Magnolia Hotshots Pambansang Manok.
