Manila Clasico will kick off the 2018 PBA Governors' Cup semifinals.

Two-time defending champion Brgy. Ginebra continues its title defense Saturday against rival Magnolia.

The Gin Kings, the no. 1 seed in the season-ending joust, made the semifinals after an impressive victory over NLEX in the quarterfinals.

Meanwhile, the no. 4 Hotshots survived Blackwater in the first round to advance.

The best-of-5 semifinals is the first Manila Clasico in the playoffs since the 2017 Philippine Cup semifinals.

Ginebra overcame a 2-3 deficit to win that series in seven games.

Game 1 of the 2018 Governors' Cup semifinals will tip off Saturday at 6:30 p.m. at the Ynares Center in Antipolo.
