MANILA--Ginebra and Blackwater collide for the first time since a blockbuster trade as the PBA Governors' Cup resumes play on Friday night at the Mall of Asia Arena in Pasay.
The Barangay and the Elite, which swapped two players each last week, will headline the twinbill that will also see the Alaska Aces and the GlobalPort Batang Pier locking horns.
Chris Ellis and Dave Marcelo will face their former team as they will don the Blackwater kit for the first time after sitting out the team's win over Kia last week.
Ellis, however, will be a gametime decision for the 7 p.m. tip-off as he has been on sick bay over the week.
Meanwhile, Raymond Aguilar may also get some minutes against his former club as he continues to learn Coach Tim Cone's triangle offense system at Ginebra.
"We expect Raymond to be a contributor. We like his skills and versatility," Cone said.
On the other hand, Alaska looks to begin a winning run after a long skid as the team goes up against GlobalPort in the 4:15 p.m. curtain-raiser.
