The GlobalPort Batang Pier is scheduled for a head-to-head game against the Talk n’ Text KaTropa Texters at 7:00 P.M. on January 25, 2017 in Cuneta Astrodome.
Both teams goal for tonite’s game is to get out from the crowded middle position of the 2016-17 PBA Philippine Cup standings. However, there’s a catch and it’s obvious, one will go up while the other will slide to the last and eight spot.
TnT KaTropa was just cruising when they faced Mahindra last week. Troy Rosario was on fire and shoots over 63% from the field. He led Talk n’ Text in scoring with his 18 points along with 9 rebounds.
Terrence Romeo seems not comfortable playing outside Metro Manila as the scoring king only scored 16 points. That was Romeo’s lowest output this conference.
Prior to GlobalPort’s game against San Miguel in Lapu-Lapu City, the team was in number two spot. Taking back the slot is very important in order to have a twice to beat advantage during quarterfinals round.
