San Miguel and Star tangle at 5:15 p.m. after the opening game between the Meralco Bolts and the Mahindra Enforcers at 3 p.m. Both games will be aired live on TV5.
The Beermen (5-1) slid to a share of second place with Rain or Shine as they are currently behind Alaska (6-1), but a win for San Miguel can change that, possibly continuing their tug-of-war for the top spot.
San Miguel escaped Barako Bull, 106-105, last November 22 in a game where Arwind Santos provided the heroics by scoring the game-winning putback at the last second....
MANILA, Philippines – Having gone nearly all over the country, the annual PBA All-Star spectacle breaks new ground as it holds its first foray abroad, bringing cheers, fun and excitement to OFWs in Dubai next year.
PBA business development director Rhose Montreal said they have had an agreement with a Dubai organizing group for the staging of the 2016 PBA All-Star event in the UAE capital city on March 4-6.

MANILA, Philippines – Barangay Ginebra starting slotman Greg Slaughter and two-time league MVP June Mar Fajardo are currently engaged in a toe-to-toe battle for the Best Player award in the season-opening Smart Bro-PBA Philippine Cup.
But between the two, Slaughter appears even more motivated this season as evidenced in his PBA career-best numbers of 22.8 points, 15.3 rebounds and 3.3 assists, halfway through the single-round eliminations of the All-Filipino conference.
The 6-foot-11 Ginebra big man amassed 43.8 statistical points to lead the pack in the BPC, helping the Kings climb to an even 3-3 win-loss record after a slow start this conference....
Arwind Santos saved the day for the San Miguel Beermen as his putback with just 0.6 of a second left helped them ward off the gutsy Barako Bull Energy, 106-105, in the SMART BRO PBA Philippine Cup Sunday at Ynares Center in Antipolo.
Down by one with just 10 seconds left, Santos got the offensive board off a miss by teammate Marcio Lassiter. “The Spiderman” then scored a follow-up shot through traffic to win the game for the Beermen.
The Energy still had less than a second left to snatch the game back but RR Garcia’s heave from downtown didn’t even hit the rim....
San Miguel and Barako Bull tussle at 3 p.m. before the game between Barangay Ginebra San Miguel and Mahindra Enfocers at 5 p.m. Both games will be aired live on TV5.
