Tuesday, January 8, 2013
MANILA —Odds are about even when defending champion Talk ‘N Text and challenger Rain or Shine collide today in Game One of the best-of-seven championship series of the 38th Philippine Basketball Association (PBA) Philippine Cup at the Araneta Coliseum.
Coaches and players of both teams are expecting a tough and extremely physical battle as the Tropang Texters are aiming for their third straight All-Filipino crown, while the Elasto Painters are looking for their second straight title after winning the Governor’s Cup last August. They will clash at 6:45 p.m.
“This is going to be a hard series as both are strong teams. Rain or Shine is in its second finals, so I think it will be tough,” said TNT’s Ali Peek.
