Red-hot SMB put winning streak on the line vs. Ginebra

After coming out to a relatively slow start by their own awesome standards, two-time defending Philippine Cup champion San Miguel has put together an impressive run as of late, blowing out everybody for a league-leading 6-1 mark. And with a quarterfinal berth already secured following five straight wins, the Beermen start working on taking one of the two playoff bonuses as the PBA continues Sunday at the Big Dome. Standing in their way is sister team Brgy. Ginebra, the same team that elimated them in the semifinals of the past Governors' Cup. Unlike the Beermen, the Gin Kings have suffered a bit of a championship hangover to start the season, stumbling to a 3-3 record so far. However, a big win last Christmas was a boost for Ginebra as they play their first game of the new year. Gametime is set at 7:00 p.m. In the first game at 4:30 p.m., Rain or Shine and Phoenix duel for solo second place, hoping to create some space between them and a crowded set of teams with four victories each. With TNT losing to NLEX Saturday, the Elasto Painters currently sit alone at the no. 2 spot with a 4-2 mark while the Fuel Masters, winners of back-to-back games, enter with a 4-3 record. .....»»
