Magnolia Pambansang Manok takes its second of three cracks at the quarterfinals “bonus” while TNT KaTropa resumes chase of a quarterfinals entry as they slug it out in a vital tiff Friday at the Ynares Sports Center in Antipolo.
The Hotshots and the Texters clash at 7 p.m. in the penultimate match in the round-robin elimination phase for both squads.
Magnolia targets win No. 8 that will ensure a Top Four finish for the ball club while the TNT shoots for a fifth win that will guarantee the Texters of a playoff crack at a quarters passage.
They clash in a virtual make-or-break duel as they face one and the same major road block in their last game in the elims – the reigning two-time Governors Cup champ Barangay Ginebra.
Both were stopped on their tracks in their recent outing.
