JMF after Game 1 win:
The Beermen would like to handle their business right from the start. After Saturday's Game 1, San Miguel is up 1-0 after a convincing 92-79 win.

The last time San Miguel faced Alaska in the playoffs, the Beermen had to come back from a 0-3 series deficit.

You know, the whole Beeracle thing.

But as the Beermen and the Aces meet in the playoffs again, this time for the 2018 PBA Commissioner's Cup semifinals, San Miguel will be having none of that.

The Beermen would like to handle their business right from the start. After Saturday's Game 1, San Miguel is up 1-0 after a convincing 92-79 win.

"Syempre malaking bagay kasi sabi nga ni coach pivotal daw yung first game eh," center June Mar Fajardo.

"So yun, malaking bagay so sana makuha ulit namin yung Game 2. Sana tuluy-tuloy na," he added.

Fajardo led the reigning champions in scoring in Game 1, posting 17 points.

As the attention shifts to Game 2, June Mar says the Beermen should just be locked in on winning.

More than other teams, they know that series leads can evaporate just like that.

"Alam naman namin na hindi pa tapos yung game, I mean, yung series. Kailangan pa namin manalo ng dalawa. And then, kailangan pa namin i-panalo yung next game para mahirapan sila makabawi," Fajardo said.

"Alam naman namin kung gaano kahirap yun kasi next game, for sure, magba-bounce back sila. Ta-try nila mag-bounce back. Dapat ready kami," he added.
