PBA: Reloaded Northport battles Blackwater in crucial tiff
The Batang Pier sport a 6-1 mark and should welcome guys like Kevin Ferrer, Sol Mercado, and Jervy Cruz to the fold.

The 2019 PBA Commissioner’s Cup continues with another big pair of games Saturday at the Cuneta Astrodome.

In the first game at 4:30 p.m., two of the top-3 teams in the current standings face off as no. 2 Northport takes on no. 3 Blackwater.

The Batang Pier sport a 6-1 mark and should welcome guys like Kevin Ferrer, Sol Mercado, and Jervy Cruz to the fold.

Northport got the haul after trading star guard Stanley Pringle to Ginebra earlier this week.

Meanwhile, the Elite are in 3rd place with a 5-2 record and will debut Jameel McKay as import to replace the ailing Alex Stepheson.

In the second game at 6:45 p.m., Magnolia (2-2) and Phoenix (2-3) battle each other out for a much-needed victory.
