Phoenix takes on NLEX in crucial encounter; Northport guns for top spot against Meralco

The Phoenix Pulse Fuel Masters takes on the NLEX Road Warriors in a crucial encounter while NorthPort guns for the top spot against the well-rested Meralco Bolts in the resumption of the 2019 Commissioner's Cup at the Cuneta astrodome on Friday.

The Fuel Masters will be in a crucial game against the Road Warriors as they still trie to vie for a spot in the magic 8. Ohoenix had the chance to move further up in the standing but they got routed by the resurging San Miguel Beermen last Wednesday, 128-108

"May chance pa naman we just have to take care of business against NLEX... pwede pa naman eh, kaya lang ang hinahabol namin ngayon is six, seven or eight ata, because tiningnan namin yung mga scenarios, it's four way tie, ano kami eight and nine positions, battle for last position either against Alaska or Magnolia," said Alas after the game.

On the other hand, NLEX will be playing spoiler's role as they aim to use their Comm's Cup  assignments to prep up for the Governor's Cup with Olu Ashaolu leading the charge.

Meanwhile, in the second game, The Batang Pier will be gunning for the top spot as they take on the Bolts. Northport currently sit at the second spot of the standing but they can take the top should a tie between TNT Katropa and the Batang Pier happens. Batang Pier take the top spot by virtue of the winner over the other.

Out to stop them, however, are the Bolts who are in dire need of a win to keep their chances for a spot in the playoffs alive. Should they win their final assignments, the Bolts could go up to a 5-6 record in the standings but they will need the help of the other teams to secure a spot.
