No rest for the weary because there’s a championship to win.
The 2019 PBA Commissioner’s Cup Finals will tip off with Game 1 Sunday at the Big Dome. Top-ranked TNT KaTropa and no. 7 San Miguel Beer will duke it out for the title.
TNT dethroned Barangay Ginebra with a sensational four-game semifinals win last Friday. It’s the first time the KaTropa advanced to the Finals in two years.
Their previous opponent? San Miguel. The result? A six-game loss in the 2017 Commissioner’s Cup Finals.
Meanwhile, the Beermen have truly overcome a 2-5 start to make a third straight appearance in the Commissioner’s Cup Finals.
To get here, San Miguel beat no. 2 Northport in a quarterfinals sweep before eliminating Rain or Shine in a tough four-game series in the semifinals.
Tip off will be at 6:30 p.m. live from the Big Dome.
