Monday is the final PBA game of the decade and it’s a big one.
TNT and Meralco will square off for a deciding Game 5 of their series, with the winner moving on to the PBA Governors’ Cup Finals.
The Bolts got up from the KaTropa’s early haymaker in Game 4, eventually forcing a 2-all tie.
Still, TNT can take solace in the fact that no team has one back-to-back games in this series and the KaTropa pretty much only lost their twice-to-beat advantage with the Game 4 letdown.
None of that matters in a do-or-die situation though as both teams should be expected to come out with guns ablazing. Winner gets Ginebra in the championship round.
Tip off for Game 5 is Monday at 7:00 p.m. live from the Ynares Center in Antipolo.
