The Fuel Masters are fresh from a huge win over defending champion Ginebra and they’re out to keep their place in the top-6 with another victory.
The top of the standings in the 2019 PBA Commissioner’s Cup is slowly taking shape but the middle and bottom half is still pretty crazy.
Saturday back at the MOA Arena, we could start getting some clarity.
In the first game at 4:30 p.m., Phoenix (4-4) looks to continue its uprising as the Fuel Masters take on the Columbian Dyip (2-6).
The Fuel Masters are fresh from a huge win over defending champion Ginebra and they’re out to keep their place in the top-6 with another victory. Meanwhile, the Dyip are trying to avoid elimination.
In the second game at 6:45 p.m., Alaska (4-5) and Rain or Shine (3-5) battle for a crucial win as both team’s playoff hopes are fading fast.
Both are holding on to the 7th-8th spots and both enter Saturday’s game with alarming losing skids. Alaska has lost three straight while ROS has lost back-to-back including three of their last four.
