The Blackwater Elite is scheduled for a head-to-head game against the Mahindra Floodbuster at 3:00 P.M. on December 25, 2016 in Phillipine Arena.
Just a year ago, these two teams were frequently seen at the bottom of the PBA standing.
Mahindra surprised everyone last 2016 Governor’s Cup season as they joined the elite teams at the top of the standings and seen their first playoffs under the Mahindra Enforcer franchise.
This 2016-17 PBA Philippine Cup season, it appears that it’s Blackwater Elite turn to make everybody’s head turn as they found themselves lurking high in the current standings.
Led by its talented rookie, Mac Belo, the Elite is now in its elite performance. Winning today’s game will give them the taste of being the number one team in the league.
Mahindra still struggling and now its on its five game losing skid. Adding Gary David and Rey Guevarra seems not a big help.
Probably the addition of Jeric Teng might help the squad not in terms of scoring but in player rotation.
The former University of Santo Tomas standout will add depth in the Floodbuster lineup.
