The Beermen starts their proper title defense Friday as they take on the Gin Kings for Game 1 of the 2018 PBA Commissioner's Cup Finals.

After a 0-3 start, San Miguel managed to make it back to the championship round and they shoot for back-to-back titles in the mid-season joust and in return, keep its Grand Slam bid alive.

The Beermen will be bannered by their usual fab 5 led by June Mar Fajardo but San Miguel now also has Renaldo Balkman as import and Christian Standhardinger waiting on the bench for backup.

For the Gin Kings, Justin Brownlee is making his third Finals stint and Ginebra will finally have Greg Slaughter to match up against Fajardo at the post with a title on the line.

Tip off for the series opener will be at 7:00 p.m. from the Big Dome.
