‘We know we can beat them and we have proven that’, says Beau Belga on QF match with SMB

PBA Media Bureau

Rain or Shine didn’t just get a new lease on life with its 103-80 win over Blackwater on Friday.

It also gave itself a chance to atone for its toughest loss this 2017 PBA Philippine Cup after arranging a quarterfinals date with San Miguel.

Though the Elasto Painters are the heavy underdogs especially with Raymond Almazan still out with a calf injury and with the top-seeded Beermen enjoying a twice-to-beat incentive, Beau Belga has no doubt his team can complete an upset.

“We know we can beat them and we have proven that. We just had some lapses in the end,” he said.

Rain or Shine fell to San Miguel, 107-100, in overtime last January 13, where it blew a six-point lead in the final three minutes of regulation and collapsed in extra time. – INQUIRER.net
