Here are the live scores, updates, and results of the 2020 PBA Philippine Cup between the Alaska Aces and the NorthPort Batang Pier, scheduled on November 6, 2020, at 1 PM.
In their recently concluded match against the Barangay Ginebra, Alaska had no answer to Stanley Pringle’s 31-point detonation that eventually led to their vanquished, 87-81.
The Jeffrey Cariaso-coached Aces’ two-game roll was cut short. With few games left to play in the PBA bubble, Alaska, currently having a 5-4 win-loss record, requires at least one more win to secure a quarterfinals berth.
Meanwhile, despite a massive 20-4 run unleashed by Ginebra to seize control right in the closing minutes of the second quarter, the Batang Pier still hung around.
After falling behind by 19 points twice in the fourth quarter, Coach Pido Jarencio’s charges even came battling back. However, NorthPort would come no closer as Japeth Aguilar, Thompson, Tenorio, and Aljon Mariano came up with the points that kept the Batang Pier at bay.
Christian Standhardinger and Kevin Ferrer led NorthPort with 23 points apiece. Garvo Lanete, Renzo Subido, and Jervy Cruz gave significant contributions, but those were still not enough to prevent NorthPort from absorbing its second straight loss that kept it at 11th spot on a 1-6 slate.
