2017 PBA Governors’ Cup schedule for July

Just a little over two weeks since the Commissioner’s Cup wrapped up, the action resumes in the PBA as the 2017 PBA Governors’ Cup kicks off on July 19.

Rebranded Kia Picanto opens the hostilities when it faces Eugene Phelps-led Phoenix in the curtain-raiser at 4:15 p.m. at Smart Araneta Coliseum, followed by the tussle between the rejigged NLEX crew against Alaska at 7 p.m.

Last season’s Governors’ Cup runner-up Meralco hopes to rekindle the magic with Allen Durham as it takes on Blackwater in the first game on July 21 while GlobalPort and Rain or Shine clash in the night cap.

The four teams in the conference opener switch foes on July 22 at Mall of Asia Arena when NLEX and Kia face off at 3 p.m., followed by Alaska and Phoenix at 5:15 p.m.
