Ynares Sports Arena, Pasig
4 p.m. Tanduay vs Topstar ZC Mindanao
6 p.m. Blustar Detergent vs Racal
Make no mistake about it, Racal’s focus is on one of the coveted top two spots.
“We know we have to be in the top two to get an advantage and the players know our situation,” said Racal coach Caloy Garcia.
And today, the Tile Masters will continue on that quest as they go up against Blustar Detergent in the 2016 PBA D-League Foundation Cup at Ynares Sports Arena in Pasig.
Garcia points out to the twice-to-beat incentive in the semifinals as motivation for the team.
“We can’t let others control our destiny so we just have to win as many games as we can,” he said.
But Garcia knows that he can’t underestimate any team, especially the Dragons who they face at 6 p.m.
“They’re playing well din. I think after we beat them by 62, they beat Mindanao. So we know we can’t be complacent,” he said.
The Tile Masters easily dispatched the Dragons, 122-60 in their first round meeting last June 21.
In the first game, Tanduay eyes a return to its winning ways when it clashes against Topstar ZC Mindanao at 4 p.m.
The Rhum Masters are aching to bounce back after their 108-95 loss to Phoenix last Tuesday, while the Aguilas continue their search for their first win in the tourney.
