After an instant classic Wednesday, the 2019 PBA Commissioner’s Cup is back to square one.

Flagships TNT and SMB have fought to a 1-1 stalemate early in this best-of-7 series and Friday’s Game 3 presents a golden chance for one to take over.

For the KaTropa, they’d like to regain series lead especially missing out in Game 2. After erasing a 17-point deficit, TNT was in position to win the game outright both in regulation and in the first overtime.

For the Beermen, Game 3 is a chance to turn this series in their favor. A double-overtime win in the previous outing can certainly set up a nice run in these Finals.

Tip off for Game 3 is at 7:00 p.m. live from the Big Dome.
