The Pasig Sta. Lucia Realtors is scheduled for a head-to-head game against the Nueva Ecija Forest Lake at 8:30 P.M. on August 28, 2019 live from the Pasig Sports Complex, Metro Manila.
The Realtors wanted to start a new winning streak while the Forest Lake will try to end their two-game losing skid when the 2019 MPBL Lakan Cup resumes in Pasig this evening.
The Pasig squad is coming from an impressive victory against the Quezon City Capitals last August 21 at the JCSGO Seed Doom.
Their strategy during that match is to outrebound their opponent and maximize their trips to the free-throw area. That exactly what they did to beat QC.
Realtors’ Robbie Manalang was their scoring machine in that basketball clash where he delivered 22 points and 5 boards.
For the Nueva Ecija group, on the other hand, they fell short against the Imus Banderas last August 20 at the Batangas City Coliseum.
Former PBA Most Valuable Player Jayjay Helterbrand made a crucial three free-throws with 16 seconds remaining in the fourth quarter. That gave his squad a much-needed separation against the Forest Lake.
Jimbo Aquino tried to carry his team by scoring 16 points along with his three boards and three dimes but still not enough to book a victory.
