SAN JUAN, MM--Caida tries to begin pulling away from the rest of the PBA D-League Aspirants Cup pack as the club will take on Wang's in the tail-end of a Tuesday doubleheader at the FilOil Flying V Centre.

The Tile Masters will clash with the Couriers at 4 p.m. as they look to go up to 3-0 and wrest the provisional solo lead in the team standings.

For Coach Caloy Garcia, Caida will bank on its talent-laden roster, which became more evident when it trumped AMA by a huge margin last week.

"In the long run, you have to use those players, and it's just going to be an advantage on our part," Garcia said about utilizing the depth of his lineup led by Jio Jalalon and Rey Nambatac.

On the other hand, Wang's goes for a second straight win after a breakthrough 97-88 overtime victory over Mindanao on Thursday.

In the curtain-raiser at 2 p.m., AMA takes on Phoenix-FEU.
