BOCAUE, Bulacan --- It could be safe to say that Kiefer Ravena likes playing at the Philippine Arena.

The Phenom has only played two games at the massive INC-owned facility and those two are some of his better performances so far in his rookie season.

His first time at the Philippine Arena in Christmas of 2017, he scored 20 points, dunked for the first time in the PBA, and got a win.

The second time on Sunday, he scored 23 points, punched his ticket to his first PBA playoff appearance and oh yes, he got another win.

Not too bad.

"It's not so often you play in this kind of atmosphere. Bihira lang maglaro PBA dito so make the most of the opportunity here," Ravena said.

Sunday at the Philippine Arena also gave the league a glimples of what the "K and K" backcourt could do.

While Ravena had 23 points, it was actually Kevin Alas that led NLEX in scoring with 25, a new PBA career-high.

If the duo ends up being a powerful combination for the Road Warriors, this game against Blackwater would be a nice origin story.

However, there's more important business for NLEX to handle right now and that's taking care of its playoff bid.

"Even though we're secured of the quarterfinals, we want to continue the momentum and finish as high as we can," Ravena said.
