The winning streak continues for the TNT KaTropa after they escaped the Alaska Aces in overtime, 99-93.
TNT’s import KJ McDaniels once again lifted his team to victory after he dropped 37 points along with his 13 boards.
The former Houston Rockets player scored eight of the ten points in overtime proving that he’s really a go-to-guy in crucial situations.
Troy Rosario who is still fresh being named as one of the Best Player of the Week awardees delivered 23 points and eight boards.
As mentioned by PBA commentator Charlie Cuna, Talk ‘N Text is the first team to make a 7-0 start after the league expanded the total number of teams to twelve.
Though the team of coach Jeffrey Cariaso lurking in the basement of the 2019 PBA Governors’ Cup but they prove that they’re no pushover squad.
Alaska even had the chance to win it all in regulation after Jesper Ayaay found an open lane straight to the basket. Unfortunately, his gimme layup attempt was a miss.
That gave the KaTropa a chance to regroup and became as the real owner of the number one spot in the standings.
