Gabby Espinas and Gian Abrigo combined forces and put up 21 points and nine rebounds together, but the rest of the Stars were also more busy forcing turnovers on their rivals, who turned the ball over 23 times.
Lester Alvarez pumped in 21 points and stepped up big in the absence of Jeff Viernes while Adrian Santos and Nikki Perez also made valuable contributions in leading the Tanduay-backed Athletics to a 76-54 demolition job of the SOCCSKSARGEN Marlins. #MPBL
The Bacoor Strikers were tested to the hilt before subduing Bacolod Master’s Sardines, 107-100, while the Rizal Xentro Mall Golden Coolers rallied from 20 points down to shock the Batangas City Athletics, 78-76. #MPBL
John Wilson, a player known for his scoring prowess, played an extra ordinary effort in finishing with 21 points and 10 rebounds to lead the Knights to their eighth straight win. Now 8-0, San Juan has just matched the best start in league history posted by Muntinlupa last season.
Game time is at 8:30 p.m., with the Knights, champion of the MPBL Datu Cup, trying to keep their clean slate and top spot against the Capitals, who tote a 4-3 card. #MPBL
