FIGHTING for the crown in the last conference, San Miguel Beer and TNT fight for survival this time.
The Beermen, at least, are on the fringes of the Top 8, but the Tropang Giga are on the brink of elimination as they clash in a virtual playoff match in their penultimate outing in the PBA Commissioner’s Cup elimination round at the PhilSports Arena in Pasig Saturday.

Another advantage for the Beermen is the fact that they’re back in full force on the return of June Mar Fajardo and Terrence Romeo (at least he’s back in uniform) while Jayson Castro seems out for the conference for TNT with a sprained ankle.
At 5-5, the Beermen try to improve their position while the Tropang Giga, at 4-7, fight for dear life in their 6:45 p.m. dispute.
“We have to beat San Miguel and even then, di pa rin namin hawak ang fate namin,” said coach Chot Reyes whose TNT troops are suddenly a hard luck squad after stellar showings in the last three conferences, topped by their successful run in the all-Filipino Bacolor bubble.
