Here are the live scores, updates, and results of the 2020 PBA Philippine Cup between the San Miguel Beermen (SMB) and the NorthPort Batang Pier, scheduled on November 10, 2020, at 6:45 PM.
San Miguel leaned on its always reliable big man Mo Tautuaa’s 20 points and 11 rebounds to bounced right back into contention for a quarterfinals spot at the expense of their “sister team” Barangay Ginebra San Miguel Gin Kings, 81-66.
Chris Ross also played spectacular, finishing with a double-double of 11 points and 14 caroms as the Beermen make up for their sorry-lose to the NLEX Road Warriors on Friday that put them on the brink of missing out on one of the last quarterfinals berths.
Now with a 6-4 record and tied with Meralco and Magnolia for the fifth-running spot, the Beermen still needs another win to be at least safe within the middle of the last eight advancing to the next round.
Meanwhile, the Batang Pier, already eliminated in the bubble, fell anew to a worthy opponent that is the Magnolia Hotshots, 83-76.
Christian Standhardinger and Kevin Ferrer are the only two players in the NorthPort side who scored in double figures in this match, with the former collected 17 rebounds.
