(Rio Deluvio/Manila Bulletin)Another down the wire finish is expected between sibling rivals San Miguel Beer and Barangay Ginebra San Miguel as they dispute a 2-1 lead in their best-of-five PBA Governors’ Cup semifinal series today at the Smart Araneta Coliseum.

The Beermen avoided a dreadful 0-2 hole last Wednesday when they hacked out a thrilling 95-92 victory behind the heroics of import Elijah Millsap and a wounded reigning Most Valuable Player June Mar Fajardo.

Millsap scored 23 points, including a two-handed slam that sealed the final score while Fajardo finished with 18 points and 23 rebounds despite sustaining a cut in his right eyebrow.

San Miguel coach Leo Austria, whose team bounced back from a 115-108 defeat in Game 1, is bracing for a much-difficult encounter at 7 p.m. with a chance at moving a victory shy of advancing to the finals....

June Mar Fajardo speaks with the media following San Miguel Beer’s 95-92 win over Barangay Ginebra in Game 2 of their best-of-five semifinals series on Wednesday, Sept. 28, 2016, at Smart Araneta Coliseum. Mark Giongco/INQUIRER.netBlood coming from a nasty cut above the right eye trickled down June Mar Fajardo’s face as he scored against a Ginebra double team underneath the basket.

Fajardo took an inadvertent elbow from San Miguel Beer import Elijah Millsap in the second quarter, but not even a gash and a bandage limiting his vision could slow down the most dominant Filipino player today.

“My vision was blurry so I kept wiping it and there’s blood coming out,” said Fajardo in Filipino after leading the Beermen to a 95-92 win over the Gin Kings Wednesday night to level their semifinals series at 1-1....

“It’s not that big of a deal,” Cone said after Ginebra’s 115-108 victory over defending champion San Miguel Beer in Game 1 of their best-of-five PBA Governors’ Cup series last Monday.

Game 2, however, is a big deal for Cone as another win would put Ginebra up 2-0 and pull within a win shy of advancing to its first finals appearance since a runner-up finish in the 2013 Commissioner’s Cup....
