 Jayson Castro is again expected to lead TNT against GlobalPort on Friday. PBA ImagesMANILA — GlobalPort may be near the bottom of the PBA Commissioner’s Cup standings, but TNT coach Nash Racela maintains the Batang Pier remain a threat.

Racela, whose 3rd-ranked KaTropa team will battle the lowly Batang Pier on Friday at Araneta Coliseum, said there is no easy game for them as the eliminations near its halfway mark.

“It’s good to be where we are right now but the tough challenges are ahead of us,” Racela said in the PBA website.

The TNT-GlobalPort game is at 7 p.m., after the 4:15 p.m. faceoff between Alaska and Phoenix.

TNT, which currently sports a 4-1 record, will still have to face Barangay Ginebra, San Miguel Beer, Star, Alaska and Rain or Shine.
 
But before that, TNT will need to square off against GlobalPort, which is gunning for a second straight win following a breakthrough victory over NLEX.
