The Rain or Shine Elasto Painters is scheduled for a head-to-head game against the Talk ‘N Text KaTropa Texters at 4:30 P.M. on May 28, 2017 in Ynares Center – Antipolo.
The chance to grab the twice-to-beat advantage is still much alive for the KaTropa while the Elasto Painters is looking to bring a winning momentum going to the quarterfinals round.
After an impressive win against Barangay Ginebra, Rain or Shine bowed down to GlobalPort Elasto Painters last Friday.
RoS still had the chance to win the game but it was the cold blooded shot of Terrence Romeo that iced the game.
Currenty, coach Caloy Garcia squad sits at the sixth spot of the 2017 PBA Commissioner’s Cup standings but Alaska Aces and GlobalPort Batang Pier is looking at its shoulder.
Losing this game means sliding to the seventh or worst to the eight spot. If the unfortunate will happen then they need to win twice to move to semi-finals round.
“It’s a must win for us if we want to have a chance for the top 6,” said Elasto Painters coach Caloy Garcia. “TNT is one of the best teams right now and we just have to match their intensity.”
Just like RoS, Talk ‘N Text will also be playing its last game in the second conference elimination round.
With Star Hotshots owns the top spot with 8-2 win-loss card, Ginebra and San Miguel’s record still within KaTropa’s reach.
Only if both the Gin Kings and the Beermen will end up losing its remaining games.
