SMB's road to Philippine Cup title goes through TNT anew
As the no. 1 overall seed, the Beermen (8-3) will have a twice-to-beat edge over the no. 8 KaTropa (5-6), a team that had to beat Phoenix two days ago just to advance.

San Miguel's road to an unprecedented four Philippine Cup titles in four years start now as the three-time defending champion Beermen open the first round of the playoffs against rival TNT.

As the no. 1 overall seed, the Beermen (8-3) will have a twice-to-beat edge over the no. 8 KaTropa (5-6), a team that had to beat Phoenix two days ago just to advance.

This is also a rematch from last season's Philippine Cup semifinals and Commissioner's Cup Finals. The Beermen won both series, 4-3 and 4-2 respectively.

Still, San Miguel should still be wary of TNT as the KaTropa scored to impressive wins to keep their conference alive after a 4-6 start.

Tip off will be at 4:30 p.m. at the MOA Arena.

In the second gam at 7:00 p.m., no. 2 Magnolia shoot for a fourth straight semis appearance against the always-dangerous Globalport Batang Pier.
