    Magnolia seeks No. 6 spot in clash with San Miguel

    Jul 7, 2018

    SAN Miguel and Magnolia clash even as Rain or Shine and TNT face off on Saturday in matches vital for playoff positioning in the PBA Commissioner’s Cup at the Smart-Araneta Coliseum.

    The Beermen and the Hotshots square off in the Petron Saturday Special at 6:45 p.m., while the Elastopainters and the KaTropa battle at 4:30 p.m. at the Big Dome.

    Already assured of a quarterfinal berth, San Miguel, which holds a 6-4 win-loss record, can still reach No. 5 with a win over Magnolia but also face the danger of finishing at No. 7 with a defeat depending on the losing margin.

    The game has much importance for Magnolia, which needs to win by 14 points or more to clinch the sixth-seed and play in a best-of-three series against the team that finishes third place at the end of the elimination round.

    A loss or even a Magnolia victory by a winning margin of 13 points or less will drop the Hotshots to seventh, which means they will have to win twice over second-seed Alaska to advance to the semifinals.

    The Elastopainters, on the other hand, have already clinched the top seed as they hold a 9-1 win-loss record. Even with the first place in the bag, Rain or Shine would want to extend its winning streak to seven games entering the playoffs.
