A victory by the Meralco Bolts will allow them to enter the playoffs as the number one seed.
The PBA playoff picture will finally be revealed as the Governors' Cup wraps up its elimination round Sunday.
As it stands, there are only two things that are sure in the quarterfinals of the season-ending conference. The first thing is that Blackwater is 8th and TNT KaTropa already has a twice-to-beat advantage.
Everything else will be settled after the final two games featuring four other playoff teams.
In the first game at 4:30 p.m., NLEX (7-3) takes on Star (6-4).
The Meralco (8-2) vs. San Miguel (7-3) matchup will come at 6:45 p.m.
Things could still get crazier depending on how the quotients playout especially since there could be a five-way tie for first place if San Miguel and NLEX both win.
If that's the case, the Beermen and the Road Warriors will finish with an 8-3 record together with the Bolts, the KaTropa, and defending champion Ginebra.
It would be easier if all of us should just stay tuned after all as this is practically the start of the playoffs. All games are live from the Araneta Coliseum.
