TERRIFIC 12: TNT goes for win to cap Macau trip
The flagship MVP franchise wraps up Group D play against Japan’s Niigata Albirex Thursday at the Tap Seac Multi-sport Pavillion.

MACAU — TNT can no longer make the semifinals of the Terrific 12 here but the KaTropa can still make their trip worth it with a win.

The flagship MVP franchise wraps up Group D play against Japan’s Niigata Albirex Thursday at the Tap Seac Multi-sport Pavillion.

TNT pushed China’s Lioaning to the near limit Tuesday but Lance Stephenson and the Flying Leopards ultimately prevailed, 96-91.

Lioaning then beat Niigata Wednesday, sealing its spot in the semifinals with a 2-0 mark, rendering the TNT-Niigata clash a no-bearing game.

It might not affect the playoff seedings here but the KaTropa would definitely like to pick up their first win in the East Asia Super League before coming back to Manila for the 2019 PBA Governors’ Cup.

Tip off for TNT-Niigata is at 3:00 p.m. live from Macau.
