TNT vs SMB face off one last time in Philippine Cup
Focus will be on top guard Jayson Castro as the top-seeded Tropang Giga look to advance.
It has been a seesaw series with neither team getting consecutive wins, but the showdown finally ends.
San Miguel will be banking on its rich experience as former PBA Philippine Cup champion heading to its do-or-die semifinal match against top seed TnT Tropang Giga.
Coach Leo Austria is unbeaten in four Game 7s with San Miguel, all in the Philippine Cup.
Chot Reyes, on the other hand, is 2-3 in these do-or-die matches during his first spell as TnT coach.
The last time Austria won a Game 7 was in the 2019 PBA Philippine Cup Finals where the Beermen overcame Magnolia, 72-71, thanks to key baskets by Alex Cabagnot.
