Here are the results of the PBA games scheduled on February 8, 2019 (Friday).
The first game was between the Phoenix Pulse Fuel Masters and the NLEX Road Warriors.
The Fuel Masters has made it and they’re now achieved the elusive five-game winning streak.
The other best thing for the squad of coach Louie Alas is that they’re still undefeated.
The Road Warriors had the chance to win the game with only two seconds remaining in the fourth quarter but shot of Bong Galanza got swatted by Calvin Abueva.
Phoenix almost given up the game where they led as much as 17 points in the second quarter.
“Medyo naging complacent kami ng second quarter nu’ng lumamang kami ng 17, as if nanalo na kami ng game,” Alas said.
