The titanic clash between two PBA powerhouse teams continue.
The titanic clash between San Miguel Beer and TNT has been reduced to a best-of-3 affair and Thursday's Game 5 at the Big Dome is going to be the most important match of the series.
Entering the crucial contest tied at two games apiece, both the Beermen and the KaTropa now battle for a 3-2 lead and further in closer to a Philippine Cup Finals slot.
After losing back-to-back games, the champs regain some momentum by winning Game 4 to tie the series.
Now, San Miguel looks to return the favor of winning two straight to take control once again.
However, TNT should have other plans as the KaTropa hope to continue punishing San Miguel with their depth.
Only TNT has managed to take full advantage of its powerhouse lineup so far in this series as San Miguel opted to utilize a top-heavy rotation and production.
Game 5 is scheduled to tip off at 7:00 p.m. live from the Araneta Coliseum.
