The PBA Philippine Cup eliminations resume on Saturday, January 4, with two exciting games to open the new year. The Alaska Aces are hoping to notch another win against the Talk ‘N Text Tropang Texters in the 330PM game to be aired LIVE on TV5 and AksyonTV. Sophomore Calvin Abueva has found his groove in leading the charge of the Aces. Meanwhile, the Philippine Cup defending champs are still looking for the right formula to sustain their winning ways. In the second game on Saturday, Meralco Bolts hopes to stop its four-game skid against a dangerous Air 21 Express.
Barangay Ginebra hopes to secure another win against the Super Coffee Mixers after winning their Opening Day game last November in ‘Manila Clasico’ airing LIVE this Sunday at 515PM on TV5. Japeth Aguilar will be looked upon to lead the charge for Barangay Ginebra while San Mig Super Coffee guard James Yap will be looking for some support from his teammates after the team’s disheartening showing last week where they lost two games before the year ended. In the first game on Sunday, the Rain or Shine Elasto Painters prepare to fortify their third place standing against the GlobalPort Batang Pier.
