It's like the basketball gods made this happen.

After an incredible turn of events, we now have a best-of-7 Manila Clasico semifinals in the 2017 PBA Philippine Cup, and the whole thing starts Thursday at the Big Dome.

Get hyped y'all.

After a less-than-stellar campaign last season, Star has made a triumphant return to the PBA semifinals as the no. 3 seed, winning six straight games by an average of 27 points.

The Hotshots swept the Phoenix Fuel Masters in the quarterfinals.

Meanwhile, Ginebra had to overcome no. 2 Alaska's twice-to-beat edge to barge into the next round.

However, despite being the lower seed, the Gin Kings can boast of a little bit of psychological edge over the Hotshots as Ginebra hasn't lost a Manila Clasico encounter since the elimination round of last season's Philippine Cup.

The Gin Kings have won four straight games in this epic rivalry.

Both teams squared off in a similar series in the 2014 All-Filipino, the then San Mig Super Coffee Mixers won in seven games.

Game 1 is set to tip off at 7:00 p.m.
