Meralco has just showcased its ability to make stops when it mattered most right after a game in which NLEX displayed superior firepower to vanquish an outgunned opponent.
Whether the Bolts’ souped-up defense can stymie the Road Warriors’ recharged offense would be known Friday when they dispute the early leadership in the PBA Governors Cup at the Smart Araneta Coliseum.
The protagonists are targeting a second win in as many games and continuing to do what they did so well in their first game would surely point them in the right direction.
Meralco has already shown its defensive grit by taking down defending champion Magnolia Ang Pambansang Manok 98-92 last Saturday.
In that game, the Bolts managed to overhaul a 23-49 second quarter deficit by holding the Hotshots to just 35 second half points and completely scoreless inside the last 4:40 of play.
