Two of the most successful teams in the PBA's 40-year history collide in what is expected to be a blockbuster Game 7 of the PBA Philippine Cup, which fans can witness LIVE on TV5 starting at 7PM tonight.
Clashing for an epic do-or-die Game 7 to conquer the prestigious Philippine Cup title are the equally hungry teams of the Alaska Aces, which last won the title in 2000, and the San Miguel Beermen who captured it in 2001.
The San Miguel Beermen are on the verge of their 20th PBA Championship, with Coach Leo Austria having found the right mix of players that has brought him his first PBA Finals appearance.
Best Player of the Conference Junemar Fajardo has been dominant for the Beermen where he has posted double-digit figures in scoring and rebounding. Point guards Alex Cabagnot and Chris Ross have been able to find ways to find scoring opportunities for their teammates, while former MVP Arwind Santos and Marcio Lassiter have been the most consistent in the series.
The Alaska Aces, on the other hand, want to win their 14th PBA title and make it the first one for coach Alex Compton, who is just in his second conference of handling the team. The team was propelled into the finals by the magnificent play of Calvin "The Beast" Abueva, averaging double-double in points and rebounds. Alaska hotshots Dondon Hontiveros and Cyrus Baguio have helped in carrying the fight for the Aces, with Ping Exciminiano and JVee Casio have showcasing their spark throughout the series.
Who will take PLDT Home DSL Philippine Cup title? Will the Beermen prevail and claim victory? Or will Alaska stage another comeback and capture the trophy?
