In a crucial Wednesday night game at the Sta. Ana. versus the Taipei Fubon Braves. Rondae Hollis-Jefferson teams up with his brother Rahlir at Rosa Sports Complex in Laguna; it’s their first playing partnership.

Rahlir is a key asset for TNT because of his considerable experience, which includes stints in the NBA G League, Europe, and Canada. The squad’s determination to maximize their roster for victory in the EASL is demonstrated by the choice to add Rahlir, who is Rondae’s senior by four years.

With their chances of making it to the playoffs in the East Asia Super League (EASL) Home and Away season hanging in the balance, the TNT Tropang Giga takes on the Taipei Fubon Braves in a crucial match. TNT is now the lone team without a victory in the regional tournament; they were surprised to lose to PBA team Meralco 97 to 88 in overtime in their most recent meeting.

With a 0–4 record and a spot at the bottom of Group A, the Tropang Giga is now fighting for a win and to stay in the competition. The difficulties in the competition and Meralco’s recent upset highlight how urgent it is for TNT to turn things around.

The presence of Rahlir Hollis-Jefferson, 32, who was courtside at the Smart Araneta Coliseum for TNT’s recent triumph over Blackwater, adds excitement to the situation. TNT hopes to win the vital game against the Taipei Fubon Braves and improve their prospects of making it to the EASL Home and Away Championship by working together.

Regarding his first-ever NBA team collaboration with his brother, the former player continued, “The arrangement is extremely big. So I really appreciate (mentor) Jolas as well as MVP (owner Manny V. Pangilinan) along with everyone regarding those guys for making it possible for this to become a reality. Definitely, a dream can become a reality for us.”

Rondae was not present when the Tropang Giga suffered a 75 to 66 defeat at the hands of the Chiba Jets in their inaugural home game at the same Laguna location.

The P.League team from Taipei, which is currently on the visiting side, is currently tied with TNT in the Group A standings with a record of 1 to 2. Their only win came a single month ago when they played at the Taipei Heping Basketball Gymnasium, where they defeated the Tropang Giga 106 to 97.
