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.

Talk N Text wins 114-89

With 7 players from Talk N Text scoring double figures led by Marc Cardona with 23pts, the defense of Derby Ace faltered and Talk N Text retained their No. 2 position in the current PBA fiesta conference. The firepower of Talk N Text with recent acquisitions, Kelly Williams and Ryan Reyes scoring 14 and 11 pts respectively, was too much for the Llamados, specially in the 3rd quarter where Talk N Text scored 31 points while limiting Derby Ace to only 14pts to win 114-89.

James Yap scored 28pts but was closely guarded by Harvey Carey most of the game and was not able to score much in the 3rd quarter where Talk N Text pulled away. Derby Ace Import Clif Brown had a monster game off the boards with 23 rebounds (14 offensive) but could not lead Derby Ace to a win and halting their winning streak to just 3 straight.

Jimmy Alapag was named best player contributing 15points and 10 assists.
