The Blackwater Elite is scheduled for a head-to-head game against the Rain or Shine Elasto Painters at 4:15 P.M. on December 9, 2016 in Smart Araneta Coliseum.
Two teams are about to make separate ways. The other one will move up to the 2016-17 PBA Philippine Cup standings while the other one will be close on joining the losing teams.
Mac Belo who is magnificent in its first three games as a pro is currently averaging more than 20 points per game. His winning streak was only put on halt as Jayson Castro joined the TNT KaTropa last Friday.
Rain or Shine on the other hand will try to avoid back-to-back loss. During their last game against Barangay Ginebra, when the game was on its crucial stage, coach Caloy preferred not to put in his best offensive players. Jeff Chan and James Yap were both on the bench as they watched the game slipping out of their hands.
Probably that time, coach Caloy was experimenting other options and searching other Elasto Painters who knows how to deliver in crucial moments.
