(Ynares Sports Arena,
4 p.m. – Topstar ZC vs Tanduay
6 p.m. – Racal vs Phoenix
With their old form slowly coming back, the unbeaten Phoenix Accelerators eye their sixth straight win when they battle the Racal Tile Masters today in the PBA D-League Foundation Cup at the Ynares Sports Arena in Pasig City.
Phoenix posted its most lopsided win of the tournament last Monday when it pummeled Topstar ZC Mindanao, 126-77 in a performance that could be the turning point for the team coached by Eric Gonzales.
“It gave me confidence na pag ganyan ang ipakita ninyo, kahit sino ang iharap sa atin, magpo-profit tayo dahil grabe ang hard work nila sa practice,” said Gonzales.
However, Gonzales warned that Phoenix will be tested anew when it faces Racal in the second game at 6 p.m.
Racal is currently tied for third with Tanduay at 4-2 after losing to defending champion CaféFrance, 78-72, on Tuesday.
Tile Masters mentor Caloy Garcia has yet to be satisfied with his team’s showing this conference, particularly on defense which they lacked against the Bakers.
Meanwhile, Tanduay aims tow boost its semifinals bid as it plays Topstar ZC in the 4 p.m. curtain raiser.
The Rhum Masters are out to avoid another lackluster showing after their scary 105-102 win over the Blustar.
