The San Miguel Beermen is scheduled for a head-to-head game against the Rain or Shine Elasto Painters at 7:00 P.M. on February 28, 2018 live from the Mall of Asia Arena.
The Beermen are looking to end their All-Filipino conference on a high note and solidify their position at the top of the standings while the Elasto Painters don’t want to complicate their situation and avoid the twice-to-win disadvantage.
Rain or Shine fell short on beating the Alaska Aces and that puts their chances to end as the top two teams at the end of 2017-18 PBA Philippine Cup. Maverick Ahanmesi exploded in the second half as he registered 23 points but wasn’t enough to topple their opponent.
The Beermen on the other hand will try to capture a three-game winning streak. A winning momentum which coach Leo Austria wanted to establish as they enter the Quarterfinals round.
“We want to enjoy a winning momentum going into the playoffs,” said San Miguel coach Leo Austria, underscoring their desire to end their elims stint on a winning note.
San Miguel almost lost a game against the lowly Kia Picanto in their last outing. Thanks to the heroics of Arwind Santos as they able to escape an upset.
SMB’s main man June Mar Fajardo will be back in the lineup after serving his duty with the Gilas Pilipinas while Gabe Norwood will be also joining back his Rain or Shine Elasto Painters squad.
