MANILA, Philippines – On Friday at the MOA Arena, RAIN or Shine, who is down but not out, will try to perform a prank on San Miguel Beer when they resume their PBA Philippine Cup semi final match.

Last Wednesday, the top-seeded Beermen defeated the opposition 117 to 107 to take a 3 to 0 lead and put themselves in position to win the best-of-seven series.

It is imperative that the SMB team approaches the final game with a desperation that rivals Rain or Shine, according to coach Jorge Gallent.

Following that I think the team will be okay,” said Gallent. In the event it (descend) is there, the regulation is there. If not, we as a species must continue to work more diligently in Game 5.”

Even coach Yeng Guiao was forced to concede that his Elasto Painters are facing an almost impossible task, but it doesn’t imply a major setback will prevent them from winning.
“At 3 to 0, your only concern now is to win one game and avoid being swept,” Guiao remarked after the enthusiastically packed third game at Cavite’s Dasmarinas Arena.

Even then, Guiao is unsatisfied with the result of Game 3, which came after several plays by his team that made it much closer than the 89 to 106 thrashing they suffered in Game 2.
June Mar Fajardo accomplished with 22 fastbreak points shortly after scoring 17 in the first two games of the series, while Rain or Shine was able to restrict him to only 4-of-11 field goals for 11 points, around 11 less than his series average.

With six huge triples from Beau Belga and three apiece from Santi Santillan, Keith Datu, and Andrei Caracut, the E-Painters complimented their speed when running with an 18-of-46 clip that went beyond the arc.

SMB’s 63 to 51 advantage of offensive rebounds was accentuated by a plus-15 count in its second attempt at points, more than making up for its four fewer three-pointers. The team shot an effective 34 of 67 from inside the arc.

When seven Beermen ended in double digits, including CJ Perez with 23 points and a career-high fourteen rebounds, and Marcio Lassiter with 21 points centered on five three-pointers, Fajardo’s lack of scoring was more than enough to compensate for.

“We are disappointed by that opportunity.” Perhaps this would have been our greatest opportunity to win against San Miguel. We should have been brought back into the race. It was an important contest. You go downward 0 to 3, it’s practically impossible to get back,” said Guiao.

Don Trollano, who finished Game 3 with 20 points as well as 10 rebounds, stated, “We ought to avoid becoming complacent. The series of games is not done.”
we won’t be uncritical even though we are champions 3 and 0.”

In their crucial 3 to 1 victory over the struggling Gin Kings, the energized Bolts

As the Bolts look to build an overwhelming 3 to 1 lead in their PBA Philippine Cup best-of-seven semifinal series at the MOA Arena on Friday, MERALCO has taken the upper hand against an evidently worn-out and wounded Barangay Ginebra team.

The club is suffering from the loss of its best wing players from Ginebra, and Meralco is eager to make the most of this opportunity in order to win three straight and secure a spot in the round of sixteen.

With a maximum of forty-eight hours separating the two teams from Game Three, the Bolts are keen to take advantage of their opportunity to take on the Kings, who are now struggling with exhaustion.

“No letdown,” Meralco coach Luigi Trillo declared when asked about their strongest weapon to defeat the Kings despite being severely shorthanded and without Jamie Malonzo and Jeremiah Gray due to injuries.

And it appears that exhaustion is catching up to them after all these years of hard work.
Their valiant effort to win Game One, 92 to 88, is one example. Their efforts to win Game Two likewise required a lot of work, and in Game Three, they appeared to be completely exhausted.

Trillo, however, feels uncomfortable with that lead and emphasizes that they still have a difficult task ahead of them.
