PBA: Champion Beermen go for the kill against Phoenix
The four-time champion Beermen currently lead top-ranked Phoenix in the 2019 Philippine Cup semifinals, taking a commanding 3-1 spread after an impressive win in Game 4 Tuesday.

A fifth straight Philippine Cup Finals appearance is on the horizon for San Miguel Beer.

The four-time champion Beermen currently lead top-ranked Phoenix in the 2019 Philippine Cup semifinals, taking a commanding 3-1 spread after an impressive win in Game 4 Tuesday.

San Miguel overcame yet another physical outing to score perhaps its best win of the tournament so far, totally just outclassing its current no. 1 contender as soon as the second half started.

Now, the Beermen are on the verge of yet another Finals as they look to extend their dynasty in the All-Filipino.

Meanwhile, the Fuel Masters are officially on the ropes, needing a win just to fight for another day.

Phoenix needs to somehow put together three straight wins to advance and that starts with Game 5 Thursday. It’s all over if the Fuel Masters drop just one game.

Tip off for Game 5 of the Phoenix-SMB series will be at 7:00 p.m. live from the Cuneta Astrodome.
