Crucial game between San Mig Coffee and San Miguel Beer in Saturday’s lone matchup

The San Mig Super Coffee Mixers battle the San Miguel Beermen on Saturday in a matchup that will have major playoff implications in the PLDT Home TVolution Commissioner’s Cup.

Tipoff is set at Mall of Asia Arena at 6 p.m. with live broadcast over TV5.

The winner of the match will have an inside track on the second seed in the playoffs, which comes with a twice-to-beat advantage in the quarterfinals.

San Miguel Beer (5-2) is currently just a half-game ahead of San Mig Coffee (4-2) for second place in the standings.

The two squads are coming off contrasting results in their last outings.

The Beermen, coming off a long layoff following the All-Star Weekend, lost in their last match against the Alaska Aces last March 29. That game saw import Kevin Jones struggle in his worst game in the PBA, as he finished with lows of 11 points and 10 rebounds in San Miguel Beer’s 89-78 loss.

The Mixers, meanwhile, are coming off a rousing 97-84 beatdown of the Air 21 Express last Wednesday. That victory allowed San Mig Coffee to get back on the winning track as it snapped a two-game losing skid.
