Fearless Forecast: Who’ll move on to the Finals? Brgy. Ginebra or Star



This is a much-anticipated matchup between two storied franchises. Their last semifinals meeting was in the 2014 Philippine Cup where the Hotshots (still under San Mig Coffee name) went on to win in seven games and eventually the championship at the expense of Rain or Shine.

Fast forward to 2017 when plenty of new faces were added to the cast of the Manila Clasico. So, what happened during their only game in the eliminations during Christmas day? That game was held at the Philippine Arena and over 20,000 fans watched them play. Barangay Ginebra won that game with a score of 86-79. The Gin Kings have won their last 4 meetings against the Star Hotshots.

Now, the Hotshots are an entirely different team. They finished as the 3rd seed and are currently enjoying a 6-game winning streak, making them the 2nd hottest team in the PBA after SMB.

Can Ginebra (#7 seed) topple another team higher than them? Can Star finally end their personal losing streak versus Ginebra?
