Mo Tautuaa and Troy Rosario were both not making big noise in their initial game against the Rain or Shine Elasto Painters. However, these two young-bloods bounced big in their next outing versus the Alaska Aces.
Tautuaa found early rhythm from the three-point area then continue all the way and logged 18 points with 2-of-2 from the rainbow territory. Rosario on the other hand added 21 points to lead his KaTropa and defeated the Aces.
San Miguel and Talk ‘N Text competed in the semi-finals round in last year’s All-Filipino conference then in the following 2017 PBA Commissioner’s Cup they meet once again in the championship round.
Both of those playoffs encounters were dominated by the Beermen and most likely coach Nash Racela wanted to avenge those losses.
