The Phoenix Petroleum Fuel Masters is scheduled for a head-to-head game against the Talk ‘N Text KaTropa Texters at 6:45 P.M. on April 28, 2018 live from the Ynares Center-Antipolo.
Both the KaTropa and the Fuel Masters are looking to have the 2-0 win-loss card and and early leader of the 2018 PBA Commissioner’s Cup standings. However, that prize will only be given to one team.
In his first game with the KaTropa Texters, Terrence Romeo struggled to find his scoring touches as he registered an awful 4-of-13 from the field. Good thing that the Talk ‘N Text mainstay able to contribute and give them their first win against the GlobalPort Batang Pier.
Despite of Romeo’s not so good performance, coach Nash Racela believes that his latest player acquisition will give him good results.
“He’s practically out for a whole conference,” said Racela.
This is now marked as the third year of James White in the PBA. He was the former import of the Mahindra Floodbuster (now Columbian Dyip) and his familiarity with the Pinoy basketball is an advantage to him.
In his initial game against the Blackwater Elite, James just easily scored 31 points along with his 14 rebounds including five swats.
Coach Louie Alas is hoping that the winning momentum they have started will continue this evening especially facing up with one of the league’s elite team.
“Hopefully, ma-sustain against TNT which is a good team,” said Phoenix coach Louie Alas.
