Rain or Shine Elasto Painters Team News
The Elasto Painters have had a very shaky season start and only managed to win their opening game against the FiberXers. After their star scorer Javee Mocon left the team during preseason, it immediately became clear Rain or Shine were going to be in for a tough year. The situation worsened during the first couple of rounds after two of their key starters, Gabe Norwood and Rey Nambatac, picked up injuries leaving their team shorthanded.
However, in their last game against the Fuelmasters both of those players were back. Rey Nambatac led their team with 27 points but it wasn´t enough as the Phoenix Fuelmasters prevented a late comeback. Rain or Shine now find themselves in an early must-win situation but their opponents are not the ones you would want to face when in a middle of a losing streak.
FINAL: 106-102 in favor of the Phoenix Super LPG Fuelmasters!

TNT Tropang Giga Team News
TNT are not playing at their highest level but still managed to maintain a solid 3-2 record after the opening two weeks. Despite missing their deadliest offensive weapon in last year´s MVP Mike Williams, they still have enough grit and experience to get the job done. Against teams from the top of the table the absence of their main scorer was felt however, but his team still managed to built a strong foundation with three wins after the opening five rounds.
Mike Williams is expected to make immediate impact in his comeback game, but even without his presence on the floor today, TNT will still enter the game as huge favourites. Their lack of scoring shouldn´t be a big issue against the Rain or Shine whose struggling team is the worst in the league offensively along with bottom-placed Terrafirma.
