Certified Contender: NLEX Road Warriors 

NLEX Road Warriors moving to 6 wins in the 2017 PBA Governors Cup proved that they are vastly improved team especially after defeating the mighty team, Beermen. They are a certified contender this conference.

SMB and NLEX battled it out until the end as both teams were unwilling to give leverage against each other. Road Warriors' game against SMB was one of the real test of their true skills and boy they delivered in crunch time handing SMB their second defeat in the conference.

Coach Yeng Guiao was still in disbelief after the win against top team SMB.

“Parang mahirap pa makapaniwala. Tinalo namin ang San Miguel in a game down the stretch, we are developing some maturity, composure in the endgame” -  NLEX head coach Yeng Guiao.

NLEX Road Warriors kept themselves in the game especially in the fourth quarter as they delivered much-needed points to put away the resilient SMB team. Larry Fonancier and JR Quinahan proved lethal for SMB as both players with combined score of 33 points including a great play at the end game as Road Warriors and SMB scrambled for the rebound. Quinahan was able to gain control of the ball and threw it outside to Fonacier to hit the dagger three that sealed the deal for the Road Warriors.
