Magnolia Hotshots Team News
Despite a shaky performance and a double-digit deficit in the final quarter, the Hotshots almost managed to pull off a huge upset victory in the opener. After trailing for the entire game against the Converge Fiberxers, Timplados went on a run in the final frame and even had a chance to complete the comeback, but missed the game-winning three-pointer.
Converge and their coach were not confused by Magnolia´s tactical approach with a new high-quality import player, who hasn´t had a taste of Asian basketball prior to arriving to the Philippines. The game showed that Magnolia won´t be as successful as in the Commissioner´s Cup, but they still have enough to pose a threat to big teams.
TNT Tropang Giga Team News
Even though TNT have a quality and long rotation at their disposal, they still had issues against Phoenix and Rain or Shine. When they faced their hardest challenge yet against the NLEX Road Warriors on Wednesday, they were outfought on the glass and deservedly suffered their first loss.
In addition to defense which has been shaky, the presence of new reinforcements in their roster hasn´t been as beneficial as it should have. Tropa have excellent potential and managed to come away with wins while not playing at their best, but to become a real contender they will need to seriously improve their game as rounds progress.

Magnolia Hotshots vs TNT Tropang Giga Prediction
Eric McCree had a fantastic debut, but the rest of his teammates will have to provide more support and be more focused on rebounding to make Magnolia more consistent.
It is always an ungrateful task to spark a winning streak against a PBA heavyweight, so the right option to back this Friday would be TNT to win. Magnolia were a formidable force with Nick Rakocevic in the Commissioner´s Cup, but due to the Governors´ Cup import height limit they now lack the muscle in their frontcourt that was carrying them in the previous conference.
