Petron Blazers to face Ginebra today-A A +A
Saturday, December 21, 2013
THE Petron Blaze stakes its unblemished record when it takes on equally tough Rain or Shine while Barangay Ginebra battles Alaska Saturday in the 39th Philippine Basketball Association (PBA) Philippine Cup elimination round at the Mall of Asia Arena in Pasay City.
The Blaze Boosters, led by 6’10” center June Mar Fajardo remain unbeaten in seven matches, while the Elasto Painters are tied with Globalport Batang Pier at the fourth spot with identical 4-3 win-loss slate.
Coach Gee Abanilla's Petron faces Rain or Shine at 3 p.m. while Ginebra Kings collide with the Alaska Aces at 5:15 p.m.
A loss by the Blaze Boosters to the Elasto Painters coupled by a win by Ginebra Kings (6-1) over Alaska (3-5) in the second game would forge a two-way tie at the top of the standing between two sister teams Petron and Ginebra.
