After a sensational 23-point comeback in Game 1 Monday, the defending champion Beermen go for the sweep Wednesday as their 2018 PBA Commissioner's Cup quarterfinals series moves into Game 2.

Tip off for Game 2 will be at 7:00 p.m.

In the first game at 4:30 p.m., Ginebra also goes for a sweep ad the Gin Kings meet the Meralco Bolts for Game 2 of their own best-of-3 series.

Ginebra won a defensive struggle in Game 1 and the barangay is one win away from moving on to the semis anew.
