Here are the live scores, updates, and results of the 2022 PBA Commissioner’s Cup between the San Miguel Beermen and the Blackwater Bossing scheduled on October 5, 2022, at 3:00 PM.
The newly crowned All-Filipino champions Beermen will officially start their second conference campaign this afternoon and for sure they wanted to avoid the cloud nine effects as they battle the revamped Bossing which is also searching for their second victory this 2022 PBA Commissioner’s Cup. All of this basketball action will be witnessed at the Big Dome.
The popping of champagnes and the falling of the balloons from the rafters of Smart Araneta Coliseum during the 2022 PBA Philippine Cup is over and a new basketball saga for the San Miguel will kickstart this afternoon.
However, there’s a major challenge they have to overcome as their highly touted reinforcement was reported that might be replaced even before he sees his first official basketball action in the PBA. The NBA first-round pick and the initial import of SMB for his conference, Thomas Robinson is complaining of recurring back spasms since last week.
A team insider told PBA media that they requested a replacement and probably make a quick adjustment as they log their first game.
“Mahirap, baka pabalik-balik iyun kaya nagpakuha na kami ng replacement,” said the source.
Diamond Louis Stone will be the Beermen’s import who is a 2016 NBA second-round pick who sees action with the New Orleans Pelicans, LA Clippers, G-League, and the Taiwan Beer Hero Bears of the T1 League. According to those people who are familiar with the style of play, Stone is described to be a prolific scorer.
On the other hand, the Blackwater camp seems like their rollercoaster ride has begun and of course, the entire team wanted a result that could spark a winning streak instead.
That was about to take place in their match against the NLEX Road Warriors last September 30, 2022, where they led as many as 16 points. The Bossing was in control for the majority of the quarters but was unable to keep pace in the final period where they saw the Road Warriors register a 33 points fourth-quarter domination.
Amer Baser had a stellar performance during that match where he made 26 points and five dimes while Troy Rosario could be their missing link which only produced three points in a measly 1-of-9 shooting from the field.
