SAN Miguel battles Rain or Shine on Saturday in the PBA Commissioner’s Cup at the Hoops Dome in Lapu Lapu City.
Gametime of the Petron Saturday Special is at 5 p.m.
The Beermen are expected to play with an import again after John Holland has already joined the team in Lapu Lapu City.
The 31-year-old Holland has NBA experience, having played for Boston Celtics and the Cleveland Cavaliers. The Boston University standout also played overseas in Spain and Europe.
The Beermen are looking to break out of a tie with Barangay Ginebra for fourth place in the team standings. The Gin Kings recently won against TNT in overtime, 96-93, to take a 6-3 win-loss record.
San Miguel is fresh from a 99-96 overtime win against Blackwater last Wednesday, with Dez Wells sitting out the game due to a sprained left ankle.
The Elastopainters, meanwhile, are looking to end their two-game losing streak with an upset win over San Miguel in the out-of-town game.
Rain or Shine lost to NLEX, 111-91, last October 30 to drop its record to 2-7, to tie Phoenix Pulse at 10th place.
