MANILA, Philippines – The Talk ';N Text Tropang Texters are gunning for a fourth consecutive victory when they take on the Barako Bull Energy Sunday afternoon in PBA Commissioner’s Cup action at the Araneta Coliseum.

A win over Barako will give TNT a 4-0 record and allow them to tighten their hold on the top spot of the league standings.

Import Richard Howell is expected to lead the charge for TNT anew after a 38-point, 20-rebound performance against the San Miguel Beermen in their previous game last Friday.

Meanwhile, Barako reinforcement Josh Dollard is seeking redemption after scoring only 12 points and grabbing only nine rebounds in the Energy’s loss to Air21, also last Friday.

Dollard had averaged 44.5 points and 18.5 rebounds in Barako’s previous two games.

The Energy currently have a 1-2 slate.

Game time is at 3 p.m.
