    San Miguel to face Thailand in ABL semifinals

    May 15, 2013

    SAN Miguel will face the Sports Rev Thailand Slammers in the Asean Basketball League after the Singapore Slingers lost to Indonesia Warriors, 53-63, on Tuesday at the Singapore Indoor Stadium

    The Slingers’ defeat helped the Slammers clinch the No. 4 spot regardless of the result of their final elimination round game against the Saigon Heat on Wednesday in Bangkok.

    Thailand owns a 7-14 win-loss slate followed by Singapore with a 7-15 card but the Slammers will have the upperhand in case of a tie due to a 3-2 win-loss record in their head-to-head match-up this year.

    The Beermen will have homecourt advantage throughout the playoffs after clinching the top spot in the standings.

    Game One of the best-of-five semifinals between the Beermen and the Slammers will start on May 23 at 8 p.m. at the Ynares Sports Arena.

    Game Two is on May 25 before the series heads to Bangkok for Games Three and, if necessary, Four on May 28 and 30. The do-or-die Game Five is slated June 3 at the Ynares Sports Arena in Pasig City.

    The other semifinal pairing will pit No. 2 and defending champion Indonesia Warriors against third-ranked Westports Malaysia Dragons.
