4:15 p.m. – Blackwater vs TNT

7 p.m. – Phoenix vs Barangay Ginebra

WITH a four-game winning streak and looking more fearsome, Barangay Ginebra slugs it out with slumping Phoenix Petroleum to try and inch closer to a quarterfinal berth in the PBA Governors’ Cup.

Playing like a well-oiled machine and with plenty of time to get even better in their bid for a repeat, the Gin Kings are one of only a handful of sides given a chance of thwarting sister team San Miguel Beer’s Grand Slam bid.

Greg Slaughter is slowly getting back to peak form, and Japeth Aguilar has improved tremendously ever since Tim Cone took over as they form, hands-down, the most athletic, tallest frontline in the conference.

Tip-off time is at 7 p.m. at Mall of Asia Arena in Pasay where the Fuel Masters hope to author an upset and arrest a six-game losing skid to get back in the playoff hunt.

The other Ginebra weapons that complement its twin towers are import Justin Brownlee and a guard rotation in veteran LA Tenorio and Scottie Thompson, which could stand out as the most efficient in the league.

Thompson is an all-around talent who gets things – whatever is needed – done. In a 94-80 ripping of luckless Alaska on Saturday in Cebu City, the 6-foot-2 former Perpetual Help ace in the NCAA missed a triple double by just two points after getting 11 rebounds and 10 assists.

Meanwhile, another team that has a hot streak going, actually, its franchise-best run, will be shooting to win a fourth straight game earlier when Blackwater clashes with powerhouse TNT KaTropa in the 4:30 p.m. contest.
