WATCH: San Mig Coffee's Joe Devance talks Alaska knockout game

MANILA, Philippines - The talk at the grand opening of the NBA Cafe at SM Aura in Bonifacio Global City on Friday, April 25 centered around the NBA playoffs, but at least one player was more concerned with his own postseason dreams.

Joe Devance, San Mig Coffee All-Star forward, had his mind wrapped around his team's knockout game against the Alaska Aces on Saturday, April 26. A win would mean a trip to the Commissioner's Cup semifinals while a loss would mean an early exit for the Mixers, who won it all just last conference.

Devance was willing to offer his thoughts on who will come out on top in the NBA (he's predicting a Miami Heat three-peat) but is more cautious about not "jynxing" his own squad's chances.

Alaska won Game 1 86-77 on Monday while San Mig Coffee rebounded well to take Game 2 on Wednesday in overtime by the score of 70-65. -
