The Meralco Bolts is scheduled for a head-to-head game against the Talk n’ Text KaTropa at 7:00 P.M. on December 9, 2016 in Smart Araneta Coliseum.
Both Meralco and Talk n’ Text are looking to make a back-to-back wins in the ongoing 2016-17 PBA Philippine Cup.
Last Friday, Talk n’ Text court general and who is also know as the best point guard in Asia, Jayson Castro Williams made his first appearance in the new PBA season and straight away delivered a win for his team.
He logged 20 points, 5 rebounds and 5 assists against the young and emerging team the Blackwater Elite.
To limit the output of Castro, the Bolts have its own best point guard in the name of Chris Newsome. Additionally, the 2016 Rookie of the Year found a new help this season and that is Ed Daquioag Jr.
The two guards formed a formidable back-court duo for coach Norman Black. This might be the answer of Meralco to those teams which are relying its offense from point guard and shooting guard.
