The Barangay Ginebra San Miguel is scheduled for the 2017 PBA Philippine Cup Finals Game 2 against the San Miguel Beermen at 6:30 P.M. on February 26, 2017 in Quezon Convention Center.
The biggest stage of the Philippine Basketball Association is already set and the best-of-seven series between Ginebra and San Miguel will resume this evening in Lucena City, Quezon.
The San Miguel Beermen is currently leading the series at 1-0.
The Beermen has shown no mercy to their 2017 PBA Philippines Cup counterpart Barangay Ginebra as they demolished the “Never-Say-Die” in front of their fans during Game 1 of the series.
San Miguel’s strategy was clicking on both ends. They have re-initiated their offense which gave them 10-1 record in the elimination round and went 2-0 when they started the playoffs.
It was only adjusted when Talk ‘N Text KaTropa Texters were able to decipher their hi-low offense and went down 1-2 in Semi-Finals round.
In defense, both Ginebra’s big men Japeth Aguilar and Joe Devance weren’t able to operate inside the paint.
Even the energetic Scottie Thompson unable to pull much needed rebounds as he only gave 5 defensive boards to his team.
In order to stop the bleeding inflicted by the Beermen, coach Tim Cone shuffled his entire bench as all of his players was able to experience what’s PBA Finals feels like.
From the opening quarter until the last buzzer has sounded it was also Beermen. Probably the only highlights which gave both SMB and GSMB fans excitement was the insertion of Jericho de Guzman and Arnold Van Opstal late in the final quarter.
The only missing part on that match up was that their teammates weren’t able to recognize what fans really wants until Heruela detected it few minutes in the fourth quarter.

With the basketball in his hands, Heruela circled around just to find Van Opstal in the post. When Opstal received the rock, he went strong to the basket and got fouled by the 6’11 Jericho de Guzman.
The entire Beermen cheered as well as their fans inside the Mall of Asia Arena. The only problem though, Van Opstal wasn’t able to convert all his free-throws and ended the game scoreless.
Coach Tim Cone definitely seen enough in Game 1 and a major adjustment is expected tonight in order to avoid 0-2.
Both coaches advertises that this will be a long and exciting series but if SMB continue to dominate then we’ll witness a different 2017 PBA Philippine Cup Finals.
