It will be speed against size in the coming Philippine Basketball Association All-Star Game 2019.
The starters for the annual All-Star meet to be held on Mar. 31 in Calasiao, Pangasinan were named yesterday.
Following back-to-back losses to start the season, veteran combo guard Jayson Castro took it upon himself to take the lead, resulting to TNT's two straight victories and a Cignal-PBA Press Corps Player of the Week to boot in the 2019 PBA Philippine Cup.
Nicknamed the "Blur", Castro averaged 16.5 points, 4.0 rebounds, 6.5 assists and 2.5 steals for the period of January 21-27 to lead the resurgent TNT to victories over sister team NLEX and four-time Philippine Cup champion San Miguel Beer.
COLUMBIAN Dyip hopes to extend its giant-killing ways in the PBA Philippine Cup as it takes on NLEX next on Sunday at the Smart Araneta Coliseum.
Although still winless in three outings, the Road Warriors are among the fancy bets in the season-opening conference following its off-season deal that netted them Mythical 2nd Team member John Paul Erram.
