The Bacoor City Strikers battle it out against the Imus Bandera in the MPBL Lakan Cup eliminations. The Strikers aim to bounce back after losing in their first homecourt game this season versus the San Juan Knights. The Gab Banal-led crew fine-tunes its defensive plays and works on with its in-game confidence. The Bandera, on the other hand, look to maintain their momentum following a morale-boosting victory over the Caloocan Supremos. The Khaleb Shawarma-backed squad focuses on improving its rebounding aspect as it continues to build chemistry with its revamped lineup.
