The San Miguel Beermen is scheduled for a best-of-seven championship round match against the Magnolia Hotshots Pambansang Manok. Game 7 is at 7:00 P.M. on May 15, 2019 live from the Smart Araneta Coliseum.
The climax of the 2019 PBA Philippine Cup is here. One thing is only sure tonight that after the final buzzer one team will be proclaimed as the All-Filipino champion.
After scoring 22 points in Game Five and made a game-winning shot Mark Barroca got clamped down in Six.
“The Flying B” was only held to 6 points and 0-of-3 from the three-point territory.
On the other hand, San Miguel Beermen marksman Marcio Lassiter entered the game with a clean riffle and logged 20 points.
Lassiter who is struggling almost the entire series has regained his shooting touches from downtown and that’s bad news for Magnolia.
Chris Ross was also shooting well in that match most especially from beyond the three-point arc where he converted five out of his eight attempts.
Magnolia head coach Chito Victolero is most likely backing up their roller coaster ride in their 2019 PBA Philippine Cup campaign.
“From the start, all we want is a chance. And for as long as there’s a chance, we’ll try to take it,” said Magnolia coach Chito Victolero.
2019 PBA Philippine Cup Best Player of the Conference June Mar Fajardo sees tonight’s game is a fair match as either teams carries no big advantage.
“Hindi pwedeng sabihin advantage kami sa experience, kasi experienced din ang Magnolia. Galing nga sila sa championship. So walang may advantage dito. Lamang kung sino ang mag-e-exert ng mas malalim na effort,” said Fajardo.
