TNT Tropang Giga Team News
TNT were not looking good in the first half of the opener. They were down by as much as 15 points at one point but managed to cut the deficit to 12 before the end of the half.
There is no doubt some harsh words were exchanged between TNT´s players and the coaching staff during the break. We will probably never find out what happened, but TNT looked like a completely different team in the second half.
They went on a tear in the third quarter which they won by 18 and were up by 6 points at the start of the final canto. However, the Beermen refused to go away and tied the game with just seconds left. What followed was pure heartbreak for their team as TNT´s Jayson Castro pulled up at the buzzer and delivered the dagger giving his team a crucial head start in the finals.
San Miguel Beermen Team News
San Miguel dominated the first half but never managed to put the game out of reach. In the end that cost them but their second half meltdown is nothing uncharacteristic. Just when we thought they matured into a title-winning team, they proved us wrong. Luckily for them it is a very long and grueling best-of-seven series so a lot of things can still change.
The opening game was full of drama and almost went into overtime. TNT´s game-winner was reviewed by the referees but in the end the play wasn´t disallowed and their players could start celebrating.
TNT Tropang Giga vs. San Miguel Beermen Prediction
Can the Beermen recover from this tough blow or will TNT take a commanding 2-0 lead? Very tough to say. However, there is one thing that suggests TNT are being underestimated in this final. Compared to their last title-winning team, the Beermen are in a process of rebuilding their dynasty with new star players.
TNT are a cunning and experienced team. They are also the defending champions and know very well how to approach these kind of games so we decided to back them in game 2 to cover the spread. It´s true their coach will be gone because of international duty, but overall that shouldn´t pose a huge problem as they should be able to cover the +4 spread.
