The San Miguel Beermen and the Air 21 Express battle for a seat in the PLDT Home TVolution semifinals in Friday’s lone matchup at SMART-Araneta Coliseum.

Tipoff is set at 8 p.m. with live coverage over TV5.

The underdog Express forced an elimination game with the second seed Beermen with a stunning win last Tuesday.

Sean Anthony led Air 21 with 21 of his 25 points in the second half to shoot down San Miguel Beer.

“It’s a great opportunity. In reality there’s nothing to lose,” he said.

“We have nothing to lose and everything to win. We just have to go out and play our hearts out.”

Air 21 veteran center Asi Taulava also outplayed younger San Miguel Beer counterpart June Mar Fajardo.

Taulava finished with 17 points and eight rebounds while Fajardo only had five points and 10 rebounds as he battled through foul trouble.

“Naiinis nga ako eh, na-outduel ako ng mas matanda sa akin,” Fajardo told about his match up with the 41-year-old Taulava.

“Pero babawi ako sa next game.”
