San Miguel Beer and Barangay Ginebra, the Philippine Cup title protagonists, clash in a highly anticipated rematch with each side looking to push their drive in the PBA Commissioner’s Cup at the MOA Arena in Pasay City Sunday.
The two teams were tied at 5-1 before the resumption of the tourney from the SEABA break. The Beermen got ahead on a 114-108 win over the NLEX Road Warriors on Friday when the Gin Kings, on the other hand, dropped their match versus the Rain or Shine Elasto Painters, 118-112.
Thus, the Beermen enjoy the momentum going to their 6:45 p.m. tussle.
“Malaking bagay yung panalo namin against NLEX. We need some momentum to ride on as we face two tough games against Ginebra then Alaska Milk. It’s a virtual playoff time for us,” said San Miguel coach Leo Austria.
The Gin Kings, meanwhile, hope to recover right away from the blow suffered at the hands of the E-Painters and their returning import Duke Crews.
