Beermen, Painters resume hunt for top 4 slot

MANILA, Philippines – Grand slam-chasing San Miguel Beer and Rain or Shine face eliminated teams as they continue pursuit of a Top Four finish in the PBA Governors Cup eliminations at the Ynares Sports Center in Antipolo Wednesday night.

The Elasto Painters tangle with the Alaska Milk Aces at 4:15 p.m. then the Beermen tackle the Fuel Masters at 7 p.m., with ROS and SMB out to push their drives in a mad scramble among seven teams for the four spots with a twice-to-beat incentive in the quarterfinals.

It’s a seven-cornered fight among Barangay Ginebra (8-2), Meralco (7-2), NLEX (7-2), TNT KaTropa (7-3), San Miguel (6-3), Star (5-4) and Rain or Shine (5-4).

Blackwater is the eighth and last playoffs qualifier, but the Elite are out of the fight for the crucial quarters incentive with a 5-5 slate.

Meanwhile, Alaska (3-7) and Phoenix (2-8), along with GlobalPort (3-7) and Kia (0-10), are the early casualties.

But for sure, the Aces and the Fuel Masters can’t be taken for granted tonight as they’re determined to end their season on a winning note.
