The Terrafirma Dyip is scheduled for a head-to-head game against the NLEX Road Warriors at 10 AM on November 11, 2020, live from the AUF Sports Arena and Cultural Center in Angeles City, Pampanga.
Terrafirma handed not only the top spot to the Barangay Ginebra San Miguel but also a twice-to-beat incentive going into the quarterfinals when they failed to win anew, 102-80.
The Gin Kings banked on a furious 2nd-quarter surge to crush the Terrafirma Dyip.
In the third quarter, the Dyip narrowed the gap to just 8, 65-73, after back-to-back triples from Reden Celda; however, the lead Ginebra built in the first half is insurmountable for the cellar-dwellers Terrafirma to overcome in the end.
CJ Perez and Juami Tiongson scored 16 points apiece for the hapless Terrafirma, which dropped to 1-9 and stayed at the bottom of the team standings.
Meanwhile, despite Kiefer Ravena’s 30-point, seven-assist performance the last time out against Alaska, the Road Warriors still suffered heartbreak at the blazing hands of the Aces, 122-119.
With the defeat, NLEX not only saw their three-game winning streak come to an end but also their own playoff bid in the PBA restart. The Road Warriors saw their three-game winning streak come to an end, and they dropped to 4-6 in the conference.
JR Quinagan performed well with 24 points and nine rebounds. Jericho Cruz and Kevin Alas, on the other hand, chipped in 18 and 13 points apiece.
Already eliminated, NLEX and Terrafirma’s goal now is to end their PBA bubble with a bang.
