The start of game 2 was probably nerve-wracking for SMB as they see themselves trail right off the bat scoring only 24 points against 32 points of Talk n Text.

After falling to the Tropang Texters in game one, a large lead ending the first quarter wasn't the start that the Beermen is looking for if they wanted to equalize the series.

Good thing the Beermen quickly woke up from the funk and did not look back behind after the second quarter run courtesy of the efforts of the locals led by JunMar Fajardo who scored 22 points and also grabbed 11 rebounds. Chriss Ross was also terrific with 20 points and was awarded player of the game honor.

Game 3 of the series will be this Sunday, June 25 at the Smart Araneta Coliseum

The scores:

SAN MIGUEL 102 - Fajardo 22, Ross 20, Santos 16, Cabagnot 13, Lassiter 8, Rhodes 7, Espinas 6, Reyes 4, Agovida 2, Semerad 2, Tubid 2, Heruela 0, Van Opstal 0.

TNT 88 - Castro 14, Semerad 12, Rosario 12, Smith 11, Rosales 9, Tautuaa 8, Carey 8, Williams 4, De Ocampo 3, Garcia 3, Hernandez 2, Nuyles 2, Tamsi 0, Golla 0, Pogoy 0.

Quarterscores: 24-32, 52-43, 90-62, 102-88.
