After a disastrous Commissioner's Cup, Alaska has the opportunity to quickly bounce back as the Aces open the 2017 PBA Governors' Cup on Wednesday against a rejuvenated NLEX squad.

Starting the mid-season conference at 4-0, the Aces lost eight straight on their way to an early elimination.

But with Buck Henton back in twon to serve as its import, Alaska looks to  have a quick headstart on the competition as the team hopes to revive a lost season.

Standing in their way are the Road Warriors, the last placed team in the the first two conferences.

However, NLEX added key veteran pieces at the end of the Commissioner's Cup, allowing the Road Warriors to finish the tournament with back-to-back wins for their first winning streak of the season.

Game time between the Aces and the Road Warriors is set for 7:00 p.m. at the Big Dome.

In the first game at 4:15 p.m., Phoenix will once again welcome Eugene Phelps as the Fuel Masters take on the re-branded Kia Picanto.
