The Talk ‘N Text TNT KaTropa Texters is scheduled for a head-to-head game against the Rain or Shine Elasto Painters at 6:45 P.M. on December 26, 2021 live from Smart Araneta Coliseum in Cubao, Quezon City.
The “Season of Joy” will resume this evening in Quezon City and it will be a battle of two teams that are looking to avenge respective previous defeats and improve their chances to climb higher in the 2021 PBA Governors’ Cup standings that will give them some perks when playoff time comes.
The struggle of the 2021 PBA Philippine Cup trophy winner, the KaTropa continue as they got another defeat against their sister team, the Meralco Bolts a few nights ago.
According to reports, TNT import McKenzie Moore still familiarizing himself with the basketball scheme of head coach Chot Reyes, a somehow similar formula that gives them success from the previous import-less conference. Though it’s still early in the Governors’ Cup yet that needed adjustment needs to be in place sooner rather than later.
The KaTropa currently sits at 1-2 record and it’s been a rollercoaster ride for them. On their last outing versus the Meralco Bolts, it was a close game but the reward went to the opposing team, 80-83. Moore only logged over 17 minutes and managed to contribute four points and seven rebounds.
For the Elasto Painters camp, on the other hand, they too are riding on a rollercoaster and still searching for consistent winning ways. They should be now looking on a 3-1 slate only if they were able to manage an escape win versus the Blackwater Elite which gave them hard time during that match similar to what they did against the Phoenix Super LPG Fuelmasters.
In that Phoenix duel which took place a few nights ago, the squad led by head coach Chris Gavina had a balanced attack as four of his wards scored at least 13 points.
