SMB to stretch winning run; Blackwater battles for survival


Games on Wednesday

(Smart Araneta Coliseum, Quezon City)

4:30 p.m.-Magnolia vs. Blackwater

7:00 p.m.-San Miguel vs. Columbian

The Blackwater Elite has its back against the wall as it takes on Magnolia Hotshots as the PBA Commissioner’s Cup resumes at the Smart Araneta Coliseum in Quezon City on Wednesday night.

Still winless after seven games in the conference, the Elite needs to win its last four games, including the 4:30 p.m. showdown against the Hotshots, to at least get a chance to make the quarterfinals.

On the other hand, Curtis Kelly will try to bounce back from a sluggish debut against Rain Or Shine in a Magnolia loss on Saturday night as he leads his team anew.

In the nightcap at 7 p.m., San Miguel Beermen stakes its resurgence against Columbian Dyip.

Now with Renaldo Balkman around, the Beermen have racked up two straight wins, and they look to continue it against the Dyip, who has lost two straight games. (PNA)
