The 2019 PBA Governors’ road to Finals will return this evening at the Big Dome and this time around it’ll be the turn of the KaTropa and the Bolts to determine which of these MVP-owned teams is much superior this season-ending tourney.
After its stellar seven consecutive wins to start the 2019 PBA Governors’ Cup, Talk ‘N Text suffered three tough blows and seems like they’re a machine that loses winning fuel.
The most probable of that losing skid was when Jayson Castro absorbed an injury and needed to be sidelined for several weeks. Yet, upon the “Blur’s” return to action, the winning momentum also strikes back.
TNT is coming from huge victories against two SMB teams. At the tail-end of the elimination round, they have toppled the San Miguel Beermen and secured a twice-to-beat advantage in the quarterfinals where they met the defending champion, the Magnolia Hotshots Pambansang Manok.
In their most recent outing, they needed to overcome an 18-point deficit and made a dramatic finish to gain entry to the semis. However, there was a cost, RR Pogoy injured his back and he was barely able to walk out from the stadium after that match. Their fans are hoping that the new “Cebuano Gem” will be available tonight.
“Game 1 is a must-win game,” said KaTropa head coach Bong Ravena on the eve of the match. “We have to come out really strong for we are the underdogs, not them.”
For the Bolts, on the other hand, coach Norman Black’s concern is the result of the long break because of the 2019 SEA Games.
“The main concern is coming off the long layoff and how it will affect our execution,” said Black.
However, his team had benefited from that two weeks respite as calf injury of Raymond Almazan seems like it’s already healed.
“We are healthy going into the series,” Black said.
