Despite a challenging conference, San Miguel is still in the playoffs. And as we all know, you don’t simply count the Beermen out when it comes to postseason play.
At best, San Miguel Beer enters the 2019 PBA Commissioner’s Cup playoffs as the no. 6 seed.
Worst-case scenario for the team is to advance as the no. 7 seed.
Wednesday’s loss to Meralco put a dent in the Beermen’s playoff drive but still, the team is choosing to stay on the positive side of things.
After all, despite a challenging conference, San Miguel is still in the playoffs.
And as we all know, you don’t simply count the Beermen out when it comes to postseason play.
“Di pa naman kami out. Positive lang,” five-time MVP June Mar Fajardo said.
“Mataas naman yung kumpyansa namin. Kaya naman namin, tiwala lang sa team, at tiwala lang sa sistema. Kayang kaya naman. Positive lang,” he added.
Whether they’re in a best-of-three series or facing a team with a twice-to-beat advantage, the goal is still the same for San Miguel says Fajardo.
They Beermen need to win two games to advance to the semifinals and they plan on doing just that as the playoffs start later this week.
“Malaki yung kaibahan ng best-of-three sa twice-to-win disadvantage. Pero tinitignan na lang namin yung positive side. Pareho lang, kailangan lang namin manalo ng dalawang beses,” Fajardo said.
“Wala kaming right mamili. Kahit sino ang makalaban namin. Ibibigay namin ang best namin. Good thing lang, nasa playoffs pa kami at di pa kami laglag,” he added.
