Knights target best MPBL Lakan record

The San Juan Knights shoot for the best record in the Maharlika PIlipinas Basketball League Lakan Season when they tangle with the Muntinlupa Cagers on Wednesday at Filoil Flying V Centre in San Juan.

Other games pit the rising Bataan Risers against the Paranaque Patriots at 6:30 p.m. and the Rizal Xentro Mall Golden Coolers against the Imus-Khaleb Shawarma Bandera at 4 p.m.

On top of the 16-team North division with a 16-2 record, the Knights will move ahead of the Davao Occidental Tigers, also at 16-2 and the 15-team South division pacesetters, if they beat the Cagers in the 9 p.m. tussle.

Powered by star gunner John Wilson and high-leapers Mike Ayonayon and Jhonard Clarito, the Knights downed the Valenzuela SVP Top Marketplace, 78-68, on Oct. 15.

They will again be the solid picks over the once-formidable Cagers, who are now at the bottom rung at 4-14.

The new-look Risers have won three in a row, the last a 102-71 dumping of the cellar-dwelling Soccsksargen Marlins on Oct. 15, to boost their card to 10-8 and enjoy the favorites’ role over the Patriots (7-12).

Toting a 4-13 slate, Imus, with former PBA MVP Jayjay Helterbrand and actor Geraldd Anderson in tow, is slightly favored over Rizal (3-12), which is reeling from four straight defeats.
