James Yap. The man famously known as “Big Game James” Yap will be back in action for Purefoods. He had a hot start this conference (although in a losing effort) against Alaska. Sidelined with a hamstring injury the past 2 games, James Yap (enter conference averages) looks to sustain his deadly form in this game against Ginebra. Will we see another “Big Game” moment in this game?

Mark Caguioa. People say he’s old and he’s done but Caguioa just lets his game do the talking. In Ginebra’s last game against Blackwater, Caguioa, the veteran that he is, led his team to another victory with (enter stats). Will Mark once again provide the “Spark” for Ginebra?

James Yap vs. Mark Caguioa. Purefoods vs. Ginebra. 2 teams. 1 goal.

Who will win the 1st Manila Clasico match-up this season? Purefoods has rest as their edge but I think Ginebra’s powerhouse line-up turn this into a blowout game if the Hotshots let their guard down. However, if it goes down the wire, Purefoods’ experience will come into play giving them their 2nd win this conference.
