SAN Miguel stakes its unbeaten slate when it goes up against Magnolia on Friday in the PBA Governors’ Cup at the Mall of Asia Arena.
The Beermen go up against the Hotshots at 7 p.m.
San Miguel plays its first game in Manila after beating NLEX, 98-94, in Dubai last Friday thanks to a game-winning lay-up by Dez Wells, keeping its record unblemished through three games.
The Beermen go up against a Hotshots squad that is on a roll, winning three straight games to take a share of fourth place in the team standings.
Magnolia beat Alaska, 95-90, to extend its winning streak even on back-to-back games last weekend.
Magnolia coach Chito Victolero has described their match against San Miguel as a “very hard” game.
“Kung ano man ‘yung binigay sa amin, tatanggapin namin ‘yun. One point, two points, three points, 10 points, 20 points, kahit ano pa ‘yan. Basta a win is a win. Very happy kami kasi nakalusot kami sa back-to-back games namin,” said Victolero.
In the first game, Columbian faces Blackwater at 4:30 p.m. The Dyip hold a 2-2 record, while the Elite own a 1-2 card.
Columbian is looking to bounce back after losing to TNT, 125-120, last Saturday, as Blackwater goes for its second straight win after beating NorthPort, 107-98, to clinch its first victory of the conference.
