San Miguel just won’t let its all-Filipino reign end yet.
With their backs against the wall, the Beermen summoned tremendous resolve and fortitude, and fashioned out an emphatic 98-86 win over the Magnolia Hotshots, thus sending their PBA Philippine Cup title showdown to full distance.
The two teams fight for all the marbles at 7 p.m. Wednesday at the Smart Araneta Coliseum.
Also at the Big Dome before a good weekend crowd, the Beermen worked on another mighty fightback, enabling them to bounce back from their Game Five loss and forge a third Game Seven in the last five all-Filipino tourneys.
Interestingly, the Beermen were also involved in the two previous Game Sevens, winning on both occasions – both against the Alaska Aces.
Coach Leo Austria and his troops hope to keep their good record in the “deciders” in a bid to stretch their all-Filipino reign to five years.
