Here is the PBA live streaming video of the clash between the NorthPort Batang Pier and the Phoenix Super LPG which will take place at the Angeles University Foundation Sports Arena & Cultural Center in Angeles City, Pampanga. The game will start at 4:00 PM on October 15, 2020.
After a Kobe-inspired, explosion game from Mattew Wright against the Meralco Bolts, Wright wants to do it again for the Fuel Masters in today’s game.
“Honestly, this is the first game that I’ve played professionally since Kobe Bryant passed away. I know it’s been a long time. It’s been over eight months. But not a day goes by without thinking about him. That’s my hero,” Wright shared.
The guard played 37 minutes and scored 36 points. In addition to his great performance, he also hit 4 three-point shots.
Justin Chua and Jason Perkins, their two big men beneath the rim scored 34 combined points, 17 on each to compliment Wright’s big game. The two of them also hit 2 three-point shots.
Both big men will be tested in terms of their scoring production near the rim, because they will be surely guarded by “The Bulldozer” and the veteran Kelly Nabong.
Christian Standhardinger, the NorthPort’s very powerful big man below the rim, comes up short in their previous match up against the Blackwater Elite, “The Bulldozer” played for 40 minutes and scored 23 points while shooting 8-16 from the field, but he just could not deliver the win for his team.
Their veteran forward, Sean Anthony also played great in their previous game, Anthony scored 22 points while playing 32 points.
The NorthPort Batang Pier will still be missing Robert Bolick, because he will still not play for today’s game. Without their sensational gunner, the hopes of having a great performance in the Philippine Cup will slightly be brought down.
But despite of this, Pido Jarencio, Head Coach of the NorthPort Batang Pier is not concerned about the absence of Bolick and says otherwise.
“For us let’s not talk about Robert. Robert is out. So kung sino yung andito, yan na,” shared Jarencio “Kami we need Robert. But eto na kami, eto na yung team namin.” Pido Jarencio shared further.
