Rain Or Shine and Air21 face off in PBA Governor's Cup and you can watch it live on Bet365.
Rain Or Shine and Air21 slug it out in the PBA Governor's Cup today.
Rain or Shine kicked off its campaign in the season-ending tournament with a 95-82 victory over B-Meg Derby Ace in an out-of-town game in Tacloban City last Saturday.
Import Arizona Reid was spectacular in his debut, scoring 36 points and grabbing 17 rebounds. The former Big South Conference Player of the Year, however, is reportedly not 100% fit for tonight's game at the Araneta Coliseum.
Gabe Norwood, Larry Rodriguez, Jeff Chan and Beau Belga also played well for the Painters against the Llamados.
"The key to winning in a short tournament is a good start. It's going to boost our confidence if we can follow up our win over B-MEG," said Rain or Shine head coach Yeng Guiao.
Air21, meanwhile, defied the odds by reaching the semifinals of the recent Commissioner's Cup despite barely making it to the playoffs.
Back to lead the Express is high-scoring import Alpha Bangura. Expected to back up the Libyan national are veterans Dondon Hontiveros, Danny Seigle, Dorian Peña and Josh Urbiztondo.
The Express also brought in new faces Nino Canaleta, Jondan Salvador, Elmer Espiritu and rookie free agent Patrick Cabahug, who is coming off an impressive stint with the KL Dragons in the ASEAN Basketball League.
"We're playing a team coming off a big win against a championship contender. We have to match their energy and play good defense to beat them," Air21 head coach Bong Ramos said.
