San Miguel eyes grand coronation

The San Miguel Beermen want nothing more than to crack open cans of beers and celebrate another championship tonight in Game 6 of the PBA Commissioner’s Cup Finals, but Arwind Santos stressed the need for a much-better start than the last time.

“Alam naman na kayang kunin pero di kami pwedeng dumeretso sa taas,” Santos said after his 27-point performance in the Beermen’s 111-102 victory over TNT KaTropa Friday. “Siguro umpisahan namin ng maganda, malakas (at) maayos yung Game 6, siguro makukuha namin yung goal namin.”

Should that be the case, San Miguel will have a better chance of finishing off TNT in tonight’s 6:30 p.m. duel at the Smart Araneta Coliseum and add a second title that will boost talks of a possible grand slam for the PBA’s most successful franchise.

But Santos and company know that pulling off a performance similar as Friday, when San Miguel rallied from a 15-point halftime deficit with a precision-like showing in the second half, will be harder as the KaTropa are capable of redeeming themselves.

“Maybe (Game 6) is a different kind of ballgame, dahil they keep on adjusting,” said San Miguel coach Leo Austria. “The good thing is sila nag-aadjust para sa amin and I think we have to anticipate whatever adjustment they have to make.”

Chris Ross, who bounced back from a miserable Game 4 with 10 points, 11 assists, five steals and four rebounds, is anticipating that TNT’s other players – namely Ranidel de Ocampo and Kris Rosales – would provide the offense it desperately needs like in Game 5.
