The San Miguel Beermen is scheduled for a head-to-head game against the Phoenix Pulse Fuel Masters at 7:00 P.M. on July 10, 2019 live from the Smart Araneta Coliseum in Quezon City.
The Beermen wanted to add another victory to their record while the Fuel Masters are aiming to make a quick bounce back when the 2019 PBA Commissioner’s Cup resume this evening at the Big Dome.
“A fresh look” that may be the words uttered by the SMB officials when they dispatched their original import Charles Rhodes and tapped a new one.
That new one and fresh look is Chris McCullough, a former NBA Draft first rounder who played with the Brooklyn Nets.
Immediately in his first game, McCullough demonstrated his athleticism as well as his range from downtown. To sum up, his PBA debut was stellar as he dropped 47 points but most importantly a needed win for San Miguel.
“We’re impressed with him in his first practice today,” SMB head coach Leo Austria said.
Tonight, his scoring prowess will be tested by one of the known defensive-focused squad in the PBA.
It was a tug-of-war kind of match between the two squads but when the Fuel Masters had the chance to get its lead in the last few seconds of the fourth quarter, the layup attempt of RJ Jazul got chased down and blocked by Glenn Khobuntin.
That loss was painful for Phoenix as they’re still trapped in the middle of the pact of the 2019 PBA Commissioner’s Cup standings.
Coach Louie Alas and his troops will try to keep their “Magic 8” inclusion as the Beermen are slowly climbing back.
The Fuel Masters on the other hand got slayed by the unpredictable squad, the Columbian Dyip last Saturday.
