San Miguel (SMB) vs TNT (Talk ‘N Text) | July 7, 2022 | PBA Live Streaming

by | Posted on: July 7th, 2022 | No Comments |

The San Miguel Beermen is scheduled for a head-to-head game against the Talk ‘N Text TNT KaTropa at 7:15 PM on July 7, 2022, live from the Smart Araneta Coliseum in Quezon City, Metro Manila.

The Beermen will try to take a solo leadership at the top of the 2022 PBA Philippine Cup standings by snagging their seventh victory of the conference while the KaTropa will make an attempt to make a major flip from their current number four position to the number one spot.

The battle between San Miguel and Talk ‘N Text could be a preview of this year’s All-Filipino Finals. During the pre-covid19, the Beermen is the team to beat after winning several All-Filipino titles led by their “Kraken” Jun Mar Fajardo. However, after the six-time MVP went down due to injury, their usual finish in the Finals was taken by other PBA teams and one of them is the TNT KaTropa.

Fast forward to today, the healing process of Fajardo looks on point, and slowly but surely his usual low post domination is coming back. Probably to make some adjustments to his game, Fajardo was seen adding more attempts from the perimeter and even hitting some three-point shots. Jun Mar also pumping up his assists production to give more spice to his already colorful PBA career.

That could be some of the reasons why San Miguel is still on the top of the standings despite missing the services of their star players like Terrence Romeo, Vic Manuel, and Chris Ross who are all nursing their respective injuries.

To take up the scoring slack, CJ Perez, Mo Tautuaa, and Marcio Lassiter need to add more minutes as well as their scoring production. Likewise, Rob Herndon the Beermen’s off-season acquisition starts to make noise from the bench as he dropped 21 points during their last outing.

“We came at it, picked up our defense in the fourth and we started hitting fastbreak points. Those were the keys (to the breakaway),” said Rob Herndon.

For the KaTropa on the other hand, their last season’s prized rookie is definitely back not only physically but also with the talents which made him the reigning Rookie of the Year and a member of the PBA’s Mythical Five. Should I need to mention that he almost matched the achievement earned by PBA legend Benjie Paras as the league’s only Rookie MVP?

With Mikey Williams back in TNT harness, expect that the squad led by coach Chot Reyes continues to be considered as the Beermen’s thorn back to the throne. Talk ‘N Text is the current defending champion of the conference and it’s no doubt they wanted to tell that to everyone tonight.
