Marcio Lassiter and the Beermen finally meet the Kia Picanto in the Philippine Cup.
Rain or Shine has three chances to punch its ticket to the 2018 PBA Philippine Cup playoffs.
And Friday against the wounded Aces, the Elasto Painters look to do it in one try.
At 5-3, ROS is currently sitting at third place and a win against Alaska will not only push them to the next round but it will also grant them a shot at a top-2 spot with two games to go.
Meanwhile, the Aces are already assured of their spot in the playoffs but Alaska would like to enter the quarterfinals with momentum.
After six straight wins, Alaska has lost back-to-back games for a 6-4 mark. Tip off will be at 7:00 p.m. live from the Big Dome.
In the first game at 4:30 p.m., San Miguel Beer (7-2) meets Kia (1-9) in what should be an unconventional showdown between no. 1 and no. 12.
