PBA: Meralco and TNT fight for playoff bonus
Both TNT and Meralco still have no. 1 Rain or Shine (8-1) on their respective schedules so this game makes for a crucial first step towards getting that twice-to-beat edge.

The 2018 PBA Commissioner's Cup playoffs will start to take shape Friday.

In the main game at 7:00 p.m., sister teams Meralco and TNT clash in a showdown that could help determine the top-2 spots in the quarterfinals.

The Bolts are currently tied at second with a 7-2 mark with idle Alaska while the KaTropa, despite back-to-back losses, are at fourth with a 6-3 record.

Both TNT and Meralco still have no. 1 Rain or Shine (8-1) on their respective schedules so this game makes for a crucial first step towards getting that twice-to-beat edge.

In the first game at 4:30 p.m., Columbian (4-6) is in a do-or-die match against Globalport (4-5).

With six teams at four wins each and only four playoff spots left, getting to win no. 5 will be huge.

All games will be live at the Big Dome.
