Barangay Ginebra San Miguel went through a very rough path before getting their 2nd win in the semi-finals series against the San Miguel Beermen giving them a inch distance away from their finals appearance where they will face the winner of the series between Meralco and TNT.

It was a tight ball game from the tip off to the final period having the two teams exchange leads from time  to time and even had multiple deadlocks through out the quarters. The beermen continues to show their successful three point skills which have been dangerous from the start of the series.

Junmar Fajardo was limited with playing minutes because of foul trouble having 5 fouls listed in the 4th quarter which made coach Leo Austria to bench him out for long minutes, Ginebra took advantage of this edge and gets their points from inside the pain and penetrations.

At the fourth quarter with 30 seconds left on the clock the beermen was on the driver seat with a precarious 1 point lead. Ginebra has the possession and decided not to call a time out to go back to the drawing board. Justin Brownlee fired a three and missed then Scottie Thompson gets the possession and attempted a lay up and was also not successful. LA tenorio got the ball with 8 seconds on the clock and dished it to Sol Mercado who immediately attacked the basket which lured the SMB defense leaving Japeth Aguilar at the wing side, Sol Mercado passed the ball to Japeth then Aguilar took a jumper with approximately 1 second on the clock and sinks the winning jumper.

Best Player of the Game:

Scottie Thompson 12 points, 10 rebound and 10 assists
