PBA: Phoenix puts no. 1 spot on the line vs. champion SMB
Phoenix maintains first place with an 8-2 mark but a number of teams, including the four-time champion Beermen, are in hot pursuit.

Based on simple eye test and actual record, the no. 1 contender to San Miguel Beer in the 2019 PBA Philippine Cup is Phoenix.

Saturday, that will be tested as the Fuel Masters challenge the Beermen in Panabo with the no. 1 ranking on the line.

Phoenix maintains first place with an 8-2 mark but a number of teams, including the four-time champion Beermen, are in hot pursuit.

Stakes are high in this Phoenix-San Miguel game as the Fuel Masters can wrap up the top overall seed with a win.

Meanwhile, if the Beermen extend their winning run to five games and improve to 7-3, the race for the two playoff bonuses will become a free-for-all with five teams having legitimate shots.

Tip off will be at 5:00 p.m. at the Panabo Multi-Purpose Center in Davao del Norte.
