The Elasto Painters wanted to strike win number four while the Bolts will try to extend their winning streak to six when the 2019 PBA Governors’ Cup resumes this afternoon at the Big Dome.
Coach Caloy Garcia and his Rain or Shine squad are about to enter a play of chance and the reward is a quarterfinals ticket.
Yet, to qualify their entry they needed to win one more time this elimination round of the season-ending tourney.
Currently, the seventh and eighth quarterfinals seat are both open. If ROS wins this afternoon then they’ll have a tie with the Alaska Aces, Columbian Dyip and NorthPort Batang Pier.
The league has its tie-breaker process in order to determine which team will proceed to the next round and one of it is the points differential.
The Elasto Painters are in high spirits coming into their 4:30 PM schedule after they tamed the mighty San Miguel Beermen in an out-of-town match. They can use it to boost their chances of winning.
For Meralco, they wanted to keep their onslaught continue backed by their hulking import, Allen Durham.
Durham discovered that he has a range from the perimeter and even from outside the three-point arc. That made the opposing teams adjust their defense, yet, it seems that it only made their defensive strategy confused.
