The Pampanga Giant Lanterns is scheduled for a head-to-head game against the Muntinlupa Cagers at 8:45 P.M. on September 9, 2019 live from the Muntinlupa Sports Complex, Muntinlupa City.
The Giant Lanterns wanted to snag their third straight victory while the Cagers are itching to put an end to their awful five-game losing skid when the 2019 MPBL Lakan Cup resumes this evening at the Muntinlupa Sports Complex.
The Pampanga squad is coming from a victory against the powerhouse Davao Occidental last September 5 at the Angeles University Foundation Gymnasium.
The Giant Lanterns made a 6-0 blast in the fourth quarter and kept their opponent scoreless from the 2:55 mark until the last buzzer had sounded.
Michael Juico had a double-double performance in that exciting basketball showdown where he gave 14 markers and 11 boards while Reil Cervantes added 13 points and six rebounds.
For the Muntinlupa group, on the other hand, their aim to end their losing slump will get boosted as they’ll be playing in front of their hometown crowd.
They absorbed another huge loss against the Basilan Steel last September 2 at the FilOil Flying V Centre, 79-90.
Dave Moralde was their leading scorer in that match where he got 17 points while Ryusei Koga and John Genmar Ylagan added 12 points each.
