8 p.m. NLEX Road Warriors vs Magnolia Timplados Hotshots
Coach Chito Victolero acknowledges that there’s still room for Magnolia to get better even after a massive comeback against Barangay Ginebra left the Hotshots the only unbeaten team in the PBA Commissioner’s Cup.
“We just have to remind our players to start strong and finish stronger,” said Victolero ahead of the 8 p.m. match against NLEX at Philsports Arena in Pasig City.
Victolero hopes to see the Hotshots heed his call Friday when they attempt to stretch a perfect start to five games against the Road Warriors, who recently made an import switch while activating a vital cog that has had some time off due to an injury.
