SAN Miguel Beer tries to complete a three-game sweep of the eliminations when it battles Ginebra while Purefoods goes for its first win when the UNTV Cup PBA Legends Faceoff resumes today at the Pasig City Sports Center.
A San Miguel win in its 1:30 p.m. encounter with Ginebra would enable the Beermen to clinch the top spot in the playoffs where they will face the No. 4 team in the event held for the PBA Legends Foundation.
The Purefoods Hotdogs collide with the Alaska Milkmen at 12 p.m. with four-time MVP Alvin Patrimonio determined to lead his team to their first win after dropping their first two games.
The Beermen are coming off an impressive 76-61 drubbing of the Milkmen that saw former MVP winner Allan Caidic score 15 points – all from the 3-point zone.
Expected to provide additional firepower for the Beermen are two-time MVP Danny Ildefonso, Kiko Adriano and Dondon Hontiveros.
But the Beermen need to play smarter and sharper on both ends since the Gin Kings are still fresh from a 100- 83 win over the Hotdogs.
MPBL-bound Jayjay Helterbrand and Vince Hizon starred for the Gin Kings by erupting for 28 and 25 points, respectively.
The Gin Kings would emerge as the top seed should they beat the Beermen on account of the winner over the other rule.
UNTV president and CEO Daniel Razon said a tax-free P2 million will be donated to the PBA Legends Foundation in its effort to help former PBA players who are either sick or in need of financial help.
