Game Seven are the Two Most Exciting Words in All of Sports
On September 4, 2019, at the Smart Araneta Coliseum, the San Miguel Beermen and the TNT Tropang Giga will square off in the seventh and deciding game in their battle for the 2022 PBA Philippine Cup championship. It is a win-or-go-home situation for both teams.
When San Miguel and TNT go head-to-head on the hardwood on Sunday, both teams have a lot riding on the outcome.
The Beermen are trying to get back to the promised land and win their first Philippine Cup title since 2019, while the Tropang Giga are trying to stay on top and keep their All-Filipino title. A lot is riding on the outcome of this matchup.
Marcio Lassiter, Simon Enciso, and CJ Perez combined for 15 of the team’s 16 three-pointers, allowing the Beermen to dominate the Tropang Giga from the beginning to the end of Game 6 and keep their hopes of winning the championship alive.
With their backs against the wall, the Beermen relied on the red-hot shooting of Marcio Lassiter, Simon Enciso, and CJ Perez.
Expect another double-double performance from six-time PBA Most Valuable Player June Mar Fajardo, who is likely to earn the Finals MVP if San Miguel wins the series.
Expect the three spitfire guards to maintain their fiery forms in the highly anticipated rubber match.
On the other hand, expect TNT star scorer Mikey Williams to make a major comeback after he was held to only 2 points and shot an abysmal 1-of-13 from the field in Game 6.
Williams, the reigning Most Valuable Player of the Philippine Cup Finals, has not yet found his scoring flow in the seven-game series against the Beermen.
Through the first six games of the series, Williams has averaged only 14.1 points on shooting 32% of the time.
You can also expect on Roger Pogoy, who erupted for 31 points in the last game, to put on a show and carry the scoring burden once again for the Tropang Giga.
This is especially important given that Jayson Castro’s prognosis for Game 7 remains unknown due to the ankle strain he sustained in Game 5.
