TNT out to end San Miguel's All-Filipino dynasty

TNT is looking to resurrect its own Philippine Cup dynasty by taking down that of the Beermen.
The dynasty duel between San Miguel Beer and Talk N' Text is nearing its end and the Beermen's current reign is in deep trouble.
Down 2-3 in the Philippine Cup semifinals, two-time defending champion San Miguel now has to beat the KaTropa twice in order to keep their chance of winning the Perpetual trophy alive.
With their dynasty in shambles, the Beermen's championship composure gets tested again as Game 6 unfolds Saturday at the Mall of Asia Arena.
After failing to get the job done in Game 5, San Miguel now faces a true do-or-die situation against a very confident TNT side looking to resurrect its own Philippine Cup dynasty by taking down that of the Beermen.
Following a Game 1 blowout, the KaTropa appeared to have solved the San Miguel puzzle and have won three of the last four games. However, the flagship MVP franchise now has the herculean task of closing out the champs, something that hasn't been done in three years now.
As if the job is not hard enough, TNT will have to do it without Troy Rosario as the talented swingman is highly doubtful for Game 6 as he's set to tie the knot for his wedding.
Game 6 will have an early tipoff at 5:00 p.m. Saturday at the MOA Arena.
