Justin Brownlee and the Gin Kings look for a sixth straight win against defending champion Rain or Shine as the PBA returns to action.
Basketball never stops.
A day after the 2017 SEABA Championsips wrapped up, the 2017 PBA Commissioner's Cup returns to action with a double-header Friday at the Cuneta Astrodome.
In the first game at 4:15 p.m., league-leading San Miguel Beer will battle a winless NLEX side.
After losing its first game for a 5-1 mark, the Beermen are looking to bounce back and keep their road to a twice-to-beat advantage for the playoffs in the right direction.
On the other side, NLEX, after making a bunch of trades, are looking to improve upon its woeful 0-8 record and actually win only its second game for this year.
In the second game at 7:00 p.m., Ginebra, tied with San Miguel at the top of the standings, will be facing defending champion Rain or Shine that has brought back fomer import Duke Crews.
With the Elasto Painters struggling to a 4-4 record, the champs replace Shawn Taggart with Crews who suited up for ROS in the 2011-2012 season.
