Rain or Shine and San Miguel Beer will collide in a crucial match at 5 p.m. today in Season 44 Philippine Basketball Association Commissioner’s Cup at the Xavier University gym in Cagayan De Oro City.
The Elasto Painters must post their sixth win in 11 games in the last day of the elimination round to earn a quarterfinal spot.
RoS, led by new import Carl Montgomery, is coming from an 86-82 win over Magnolia.
“We felt really small against San Miguel Beer. They got a tall import who can really score while we have a lot of problems when it comes to height and rebounding,” said Rain or Shine coach Caloy Garcia.
San Miguel Beer is targeting its fifth victory in 10 games and its third straight win to stay in contention for a quarterfinal berth. The Beermen are coming from a 128-108 win over Phoenix Pulse
“There is an advantage and a disadvantage when you are taller than your opponent. We hope to sustain our momentum because this game is important for both of us,” said San Miguel Beer coach Leo Austria.
