The Alaska Aces is scheduled for a head-to-head game against the Rain or Shine Elasto Painters at 7:00 P.M. on February 1, 2017 in Cuneta Astrodome.
The final game of the elimination round is too important for Alaska and Rain or Shine.
The Aces is bound for a twice-to-beat advantage if they’re able to snag a win while the Elasto Painters can avoid a do-or-die game against Blackwater Elite if they’re able to take home the W this evening.
Alaska Aces is currently on a roll by winning its back-to-back games. Actually they’ve won its three games out of their last four outings.
Just like Star Hotshots, the other team which is currently in the second spot of the standings, started slow during the start of 2016-17 PBA Philippine Cup.
Then fast forward to February, they’re now the teams fighting for the twice-to-beat position in the upcoming quarterfinals round.
Rain or Shine on the other hand was one of the teams always seen at the second or third place in the standings early this conference.
However, after their what-seems-to-be a winnable game against San Miguel Beermen, the Elasto Painters dropped its next two games.
Meralco and GlobalPort were the other teams gave RoS its two games losing skid.
Another loss for Rain or Shine will give a chance to Blackwater Elite for taking the last seat going to the next round.
