B-Meg Derby Ace Llamados has a 3-game win streak as they battle league leading Talk N Text who has won 13 straight wins including a blow-out game vs Derby Ace last May 19, 114-89. Derby Ace Import Clif Brown who is rumored to be replaced soon, will still be active for this game and will be evaluated on a per game basis. Derby Ace has a respectable 7-3 record with Brown, but he lacks offensive punch but has been consistent off the boards specially offensive rebounding.

If Derby Ace decides to change Import, chemistry will be an issue again since they have only 2 more games left in the elimination round (vs Barangay Ginebra and Barako Coffee) after the game vs Talk N Text.
