San Miguel Beermen Team News
The most decorated team in the history of the league has been struggling after winning three straight PBA Cups between 2015 and 2017. This year the competition is fierce as always, but they are on the right track to finally lift the trophy after an impressive 9-2 record in the regular season.
Led by their six-time MVP and one of the most imposing centers in the league June Mar Fajardo, the Beermen are expected to take care of business against Blackwater. Throughout this PBA Cup season they have been dealing with some absences and injuries but all of that didn´t prevent them from winning games and asserting their dominance.
Blackwater Bossing Team News
During the last Governors´ and PBA Cup, Blackwater looked desperate and suffered 29 consecutive defeats. After getting what they wanted in the draft, they were eager to redeem themselves and have to be more than satisfied after making the playoffs.
They opened the new season with a surprising win over TNT but then suffered a tight loss to the Ginebra Kings. After that they went on an unexpected rampage and won four straight games. However, they currently find themselves in a 5-game losing streak and haven´t won a game in almost three weeks. Even though they recently started losing again, Blackwater were mostly competitive and managed to sneak into the playoffs.
Since they are taking on the main title favourites, their playoff stint is expected to be short-lived. In addition, their life became much more difficult after losing their primary rebounder Yousef Taha right at the end of the regular season.
San Miguel Beermen vs. Blackwater Bossing Prediction
Blackwater will enter this quarter-final matchup as heavy underdogs and without their main center and rebounder. Since they are going up against one of the most formidable centers in the league, they should have a lot of problems on the boards. The Beermen don´t have a complete roster either but they have more than enough depth and talent to take advantage of Blackwater´s troubles.
