The best two teams of the Northern Division of the Maharlika Pilipinas Basketball League is now determined and both the Knights and Super Crunch-backed squad will try to snag the victory of Game 1 to gain the momentum. The outcome of the said will be revealed after the final buzzer of the first encounter is pressed tonight at the FilOil Flying V Centre.
Team Makati needed an extra period against the Manila Frontrow Stars to secure their Group A Finals spot last March 6 at the San Andres Sports Complex.
Joseph Sedurifa made headlines during that match as he exploded 12 points in that decisive Game 3 semis battle. Nine of his points came in the most crucial part of the game where he drilled three three-pointers in overtime.
Juneric Baloria was the top scorer of the Super Crunch while Joshua Torralba and John Rey Villanueva added 11 and 7 markers respectively.
For the defending champion, the team San Juan on the other hand, they have swept their semis round against the Pampanga Giant Lanterns and for sure they will use their extended rest to help them secure the victory of their Northern Division Finals opener.
Though the Knights had a hard time leveling the rebounding and the points-in-the-paint battler versus the Giant Lanterns it was in the forced turnovers they went supreme as they put their opponent to a difficult position and made 20 turnovers.
Several of those Pampanga turnovers were converted to 22 San Juan points.
John Wilson leads his squad with 26 points along with his five steals while Jhonard Clarito added 14 points and 14 rebounds.
