The NLEX Road Warriors is scheduled for a head-to-head game against the Phoenix Pulse Fuel Masters at 4:30 P.M. on September 21, 2019 live from the Smart Araneta Coliseum in Quezon City.
The Fuel Masters will try to withstand to the full-force lineup of the Road Warriors when the 2019 PBA Governors’ Cup continues this afternoon at the Big Dome.
PBA fans are waiting for his return especially the followers of the NLEX Road Warriors.
“The Phenom” is back! Kiefer Ravena is definitely looking forward to show-off his basketball skills once again in the biggest basketball league in the nation after serving his FIBA-imposed suspension.
Other teams are now preparing their squads and one of their strategies to defeat NLEX is to shut down the scoring production of the former number two overall pick.
One of those coaches is Phoenix’s Louie Alas.
“It will be a tough one. Last conference natalo kami kahit wala si Ravena. It’ll be tougher now,” said Alas. “But we had a good game preparation.”
“Kailangan lang ma-contain namin fastbreak at transition offense nila, tapos ma-contain import, Ravena, (Jericho) Cruz, (JR) Quinahan and (Poy) Erram,” Alas added.
Apart from Ravena, Michael Miranda will be re-joining NLEX this afternoon.
For the Fuel Masters, on the other hand, they’ll continue their campaign still without Calvin Abueva who is under indefinite suspension.
Matthew Wright, one of the top gunners of Phoenix is now fully recovered after getting injured during their preparation for the 2019 FIBA World Cup with Gilas Pilipinas.
The Fuel Masters will once again have their “balik-import” Eugene Phelps and with the 6’3 limit height for the third conference expect Phelps to become a monster inside the paint.
