The Makati Super Crunch and the Caloocan Supremos battle it out in the elimination round of the MPBL Lakan Cup. Both teams try to halt a two-game skid and secure a playoff spot in the North Division at the expense of each other. With their sights set on a home court advantage, The Super Crunch-backed cagers aim to further improve their 20-6 win-loss slate as they currently sit at the third spot in the leaderboards. They also look to snag their first win under new head coach Beaujing Acot. The Supremos, meanwhile, are expected to fight for survival as they linger at the ninth spot with a 14-12 win-loss card.
