Business as usual for NorthPort
MANILA, Philippines — NorthPort is rocking and rolling in Bacolor without its regular coaching staff.
Using their coaches’ situation as a rallying point, the Batang Pier tripped Terrafirma, 104-84, for back-to-back wins in the PBA Philippine Cup yesterday in Bacolor, Pampanga.
The fired up Batang Pier unleashed a searing windup in the second quarter to lay the foundation for the 20-point rout that came off the heels of their 98-73 mangling of Blackwater two days ago.
The Batang Pier hiked their overall record to 3-3 and rose to No. 7 in the standings, doing this with mentor Pido Jarencio and his assistants still recovering from COVID-19.
“We’re dedicating the games to our coaches back in Manila,” said interim coach Bonnie Tan.
Later, Phoenix also started a two-game streak for 4-5 overall after a 114-92 romp over winless Blackwater (0-9).
