The Knights will try to stretch their winning streak to six while the Stars wanted to make a quick bounce-back game when the 2019 MPBL Lakan Cup resumes this evening in Misamis Oriental.
The San Juan squad is coming from a closed-game victory versus the Makati Super Crunch last November 25 at the Makati Coliseum.
Thanks to the heroics of the former De La Salle University Green Archers Justin Baltazar who drilled his free-throw late in the fourth quarter and a key swat that sent the home team packing.
John Wilson led the Knights offense with his 22 points and six boards while Baltazar added 16 markers and 18 rebounds.
For team Manila, on the other hand, they’re coming from a defeat versus the Davao Occidental Tigers last November 23 at the Davao City Recreation Center.
With 29 seconds left in the final frame, the Stars was leading by a point but the home squad don’t want to get humiliated in front of their hometown fans and was able to recover and snatched the victory.
Christopher Bitoon and Aristotle Dionisio led Manila in their scoring with 15 points apiece.
