PBA: Blackwater shoots for fifth straight win vs. NLEX
The Elite are now 4-0 for first place in the 2018 PBA Governors' Cup and Blackwater's drive for a perfect five will pit them against the NLEX Road Warriors Wednesday at the Araneta Coliseum.

Blackwater is out to extend it's franchise-best start in the PBA.

The Elite are now 4-0 for first place in the 2018 PBA Governors' Cup and Blackwater's drive for a perfect five will pit them against the NLEX Road Warriors Wednesday at the Araneta Coliseum.

For their last win, Blacwater took down two-time defending champion Ginebra in overtime and the Elite are looking to take that momentum and run away with it.

Meanwhile, the Road Warriors will officially welcome back head coach Yeng Guiao and Asi Taulave to the fold after both served the national team.

NLEX went 3-2 without two of its veteran pillars. Tip off for the Blackwater-NLEX tiff will be at 4:30 p.m. Wednesday.

In the second game at 7:00 p.m., Rain or Shine (0-1) and Magnolia (2-1) look to bounce back from separate defeats from their last game.
