NorthPort Vs TNT Tropang Giga | November 3, 2020 | PBA Live Streaming – 2020 PBA Philippine Cup

by | Posted on: November 3rd, 2020 | No Comments | Sports

The NorthPort Batang Pier is scheduled for a head-to-head game against the TNT Tropang Giga at 4 PM on November 3, 2020 live from the AUF Sports Arena and Cultural Center in Angeles City, Pampanga.

With a morale-boosting win over the struggling Terrafirma Dyip last October 24, expect nothing but a never-say-die attitude from Northport Batang Pier in their match-up with the TNT Tropang Giga this afternoon.

With the team’s crucial three-point binge down the stretch from unlikely sources, NorthPort finally notches their first win in the PBA Philippine Cup bubble, 107-96.

Rookie Renzo Subido and Kelly Nabong teamed up to lead the Batang Pier to their breakthrough triumph. From a 92-88 count, Subido and Nabong combined for four straight treys to get NorthPort over the hump while leaving Terrafirma (0-5) as the lone winless team in the bubble tourney.

Subido, the 24th pick in the last rookie draft, made an explosion, erupting for three treys plus a three-point play in the last five minutes of the game. Meanwhile, in the absence of the injury-hit Sean Anthony, Nabong stepped up, going 4-of-6 from the arc to highlight an 18-point, eight-rebound game.

“Yung mga bata gusto ng manalo at ayaw ma-five-zero. Madaming nag-step up, and it’s a morale-boosting win for us,” said NorthPort coach Pido Jarecio.

Meanwhile, just a win away from punching a ticket to the playoffs, the Tropang Giga would surely avenge the defeat the NLEX Road Warriors inflicted them last Thursday (October 29).

With sub-par performances in their last match that eventually led to their team’s defeat, expect a better showing from Roger Pogoy, Bobby Ray Parks, Troy Rosario, and Poy Erram, who along with coach Bong Ravena and the rest of TNT, desires a strong finish for a place in the Top Four that will give them a twice-to-beat advantage in the playoffs.

For sure, this is a tug-of-war between NorthPort’s Christian Standhardinger, current no. 1 in the business of rebounding and TNT’s Jayson Castro, who ruled in dishing out.
