TNT will look to take over as the no. 1 team in the 2019 PBA Commissioner’s Cup Saturday.
The KaTropa enter their 4:30 p.m. showdown against the Meralco Bolts as one of the hotter teams in the league with a three-game winning streak.
With a 5-1 record, TNT is tied with idle Northport for the lead but a win against the Bolts allows the KaTropa to grab solo first in the mid-season joust.
Meanwhile, the Bolts are at at even 3-3 after a recent two-game run came to an end at the hands of the Alaska Aces last week.
The main game of the Petron Saturday Special is the 6:45 p.m. meeting between Alaska and Phoenix.
Also armed with a three-game winning streak, the Aces are at fourth place with a 4-2 mark while the Fuel Masters are at 1-3 with a three-game losing skid.
