LIVE BLOG: PBA semifinals game 5 – Ginebra vs San Miguel
MANILA, Philippines – Barangay Ginebra San Miguel and the San Miguel Beermen will play one more semifinals game for the last Finals ticket in the 2016 PBA Governors' Cup on Tuesday, October 4, 7 pm at the Smart Araneta Coliseum.
The Beermen, champions of 3 of the last 5 conferences and defending champions this conference, are looking to extend their reign of dominance with another Finals appearance.
San Miguel forced the do-or-die match on the strength of Marcio Lassiter's hot shooting and its defensive play in game 4.
Ginebra, on the other hand, wants to end a 3-year Finals appearance drought and more so an 8-year championship dry spell.
The winner of game 5 will go on to face the Meralco Bolts in a best-of-7 Finals affair starting Friday.
