The GlobalPort Batang Pier is scheduled for a head-to-head game against the Blackwater Elite at 3:00 P.M. on April 8, 2017 in Mall of Asia Arena.
One thing is certain this afternoon, one winless team in the PBA will finally get a victory. The question is, which team is more desperate to take it?
GlobalPort’s coach Franz Pumaren looks like he carefully prepared this matchup as Batang Pier shipped back its import (Sean Williams) and will be parading a new one.
So far, coach Pumaren squad is relying its scoring heavily on Stanley Pringle as Terrence Romeo still searching his shooting stroke this second conference.
Talking about preparation, Blackwater had all of the time in the world prior to their 3 o’clock game.
They are coming off from a week rest and most likely had the time to correct their system execution.
Despite of absorbing four straight losses, the Elite still keeping Greg Smith who is one of the agressive imports this 2017 PBA Commissioner’s Cup.
Coach Leo Isaac squad will still be missing the services of Mac Belo and Art dela Cruz due to injuries. Blackwater’s two young guns were instrumental for the Elite in its playoff run last conference.
