Barako Bull shocked the top-seeded Tropang Texters in Game One, holding them down to their lowest scoring output this season. Dorian Pena forced import Donnell Harvey into a tough night, and Danny Seigle took up the cudgels on the offensive end as he scored nine points in the crucial final period to close out the Texters.
Can Harvey and the rest of the defending champs shake off the rust from their long break in time for Game Two? Or will the sharp vets of the Energy put up another vintage performance for their fans?
