Derailed their last time out, Columbian and NorthPort try to get back on track when they collide Wednesday in the PBA Governors Cup at the Smart Araneta Coliseum.
The well-rested Dyip are raring to bounce back following a 90-96 loss to Rain or Shine two Sundays ago Ditto for the Batang Pier, who are coming off an 80-96 drubbing from defending champion Magnolia Ang Pambansang Manok last Friday.
Both protagonists know their task is cut out for them.
“Siyempre, hindi naman sila ganoon kadaling talunin. Malakas na team iyung NorthPort,” said Columbian coach Johnedel Cardel.
The key, added Cardel, is for his Dyip to repeat what they did so well in a 117-110 win over Alaska on opening day, which is to combine Khapri Alston’s inside game with some perimeter shooting while making good decisions against the defense the other side puts up.
“Kung paano kami nanalo nung una, na kailangan may adjustments sa depensa nila,” offered Cardel.
