There’s really no mercy in the all-MVP derby in the 2019 PBA Governors’ Cup semifinals.
After TNT caught a rusty Meralco off guard in Game 1, the Bolts responded with a rather electrifying performance in Game 2.
Now, the best-of-5 series is tied at one game each making Game 3 all the more crucial for both MVP squads.
For the KaTropa, bouncing back from a rare bad performance is necessary as a win puts them one game closer to a second straight Finals.
However, the Bolts are a different team in the Governors’ Cup and a win by Meralco in Game 3 put them one step closer to a third Finals appearance in four seasons.
Something has to give and TNT and Meralco will settle the score Thursday at 7:00 p.m. live from the Big Dome.
