TNT shoots for a 2-0 lead, while Magnolia eyes for an equalizer following an uninspired Game 1 performance where it lost by 18 points

Another lackluster performance would doom Magnolia as TNT guns for back-to-back victories in the PBA Philippine Cup finals when they tangle in Game 2 on Friday, October 22.

The Hotshots – according to chief PBA statistician Fidel Mangonon – set an all-time finals record for lowest field goal percentage with a measly 27.4% in Game 1, which the Tropang Giga handily won, 88-70.

Magnolia fell into a 2-20 hole and never recovered as it also committed a league conference-high 28 turnovers.

All eyes will be on TNT rookie Mikey Williams after he lit up Game 1 with a personal playoff-high 21 points to go with 10 rebounds, 5 assists, and 2 steals in 28 minutes of play.

The Tropang Giga, though, may miss veteran big man Kelly Williams after the team listed him as “doubtful” due to back issues.

Meanwhile, the Hotshots seek to get the usual production from star trio Paul Lee, Calvin Abueva, and Ian Sangalang as they eye to knot the best-of-seven affair at 1-1.

Sangalang scored just 5 points and saw action in only 10 minutes in Game 1 after also experiencing back pain.

Tip off is at 6 pm.
