The Pampanga Giant Lanterns is scheduled for a head-to-head game against the Valenzuela SPV Top Marketplace at 8:30 P.M. on July 31, 2019 live from the AUF Gymnasium, Angeles City.
The Giant Lanterns wanted to log their fifth victory this season at home while the SPV Top Marketplace will try to end their four-game slump when the 2019 MPBL Lakan Cup travels to Angeles City.
The Pampanga squad is coming from a victory against the Biñan City Laguna Heroes in Pasig Sports Complex last July 25.
One of the secrets of their success in that match was to outrebound their opponent, 60-43 which some of those boards crashing resulted in 18 second-chance points.
Mark Cruz was on fire in that game where he scored 31 points along with his eight rebounds.
For the Valenzuela group, on the other hand, they got beaten by the Basilan Steel in Bulacan Capitol Gymnasium last July 24.
One of the areas they need to improve is their rebounding as they got outplayed by their opponent, 27-51.
Likewise, they need their supporting casts to help them in scoring.
Chris De Chavez was their main-man in their last outing where he manufactured 23 markers and seven boards.
