The Talk ‘N Text KaTropa Texters is scheduled for a head-to-head game against the Blackwater Elite at 4:15 P.M. on August 30, 2017 live from Mall of Asia Arena.
A rare four-game winning streak is what the Elite are after in their afternoon’s clash while the KaTropa is looking to author a new winning streak.
For the first time in Blackwater’s franshise, coach Leo Isaac has delivered the best winning conference so far, a three-game winning streak.
Initially this 2017 PBA Governors’ Cup it seems that they’re heading once again to another losing campaign but after Henry Walker joined the club, their story changed.
Apart from his awesome average of 32 points and 20.6 rebounds a games, Walker brings leadership to the Elite’s table.
To boost their chances and extend their chances of winning four games in a row, Mac Belo is set to return with Blackwater.
Belo was supposed to replace Carl Bryan Cruz in Gilas’ campaign in the just concluded 2017 Southeast Asian Games but was denied by the event organizers.
“We will go for a win,” stated Isaac, whose team has not won over TNT in their eight previous meetings.
“So many things are at stake,” added Isaac. “A first-ever four-game win streak for our franchise and a first-ever win over TNT since we joined the PBA.”
“Also, a first for Henry Walker to win over TNT since he started playing here in the country.”
For Talk ‘N Text on the other hand, finally they’ll be in full force once again. A team that always reached at least in the semi-finals round in the past two conferences.
Apart from his locals, coach Nash Racela will once again unleash his new acquired import. Rice Jr., shoots better in his second game in the PBA and resulted to a win.
“Blackwater is at their best right now,” noted Racela. “The locals have been playing well with (Henry) Walker’s leadership. We need to study and prepare hard to have a chance.”
