The Talk ‘N Text KaTropa Texters is scheduled for a head-to-head game against the Alaska Aces at 6:45 P.M. on May 25, 2019 live from the Smart Araneta Coliseum in Quezon City.
The KaTropa wanted to make a back-to-back victories while the Road Warriors are hoping that their new hired import will put their squad in the winning column when the 2019 PBA Commissioner’s Cup resume this evening at the Big Dome.
High expectations when Terrence Jones set his foot in the local pro-league. The former first round pick in the NBA didn’t failed the TNT fans as he exploded with 41 points plus a lopsided victory against the NLEX Road Warriors.
Coach Bong Ravena is pleased with the offensive arsenal brought by their import but also looking forward that Jones will also be more involved in the defensive plays.
“Scoring-wise okay talaga siya. Wala kang hahanapin sa kanya offensively. He can score anytime he wants. Pero mas importante sa amin ang team defense. Gusto namin makatulong siya sa amin sa sistema namin sa depensa,” said Ravena.
Without their ace player Chris Banchero who got sidelined due to an injury, the offensive flow of the Aces went scramble.
They got humiliated by the NorthPort Batang Pier last Wednesday in Ynares Center, 81-103.
In the first half, Alaska import Chris Daniels exploded with 16 points but in the following two quarters seems like he disappeared as he only contributed five points.
Coach Alex Compton is hoping that their foreign hire will make a bounce back and help them to return to the winning tracks.
