San Miguel Beer held off Barangay Ginebra, 91-85, in Game 5 of their best-of-seven championship series to win its third straight PBA Philippine Cup title Sunday night at Smart Araneta Coliseum.
Barangay Ginebra just did not have enough wind to extend the series. All starters look tired and anemic, could be from the 2 grueling series that they need to go through to reach the finals; they needed to beat Alaska twice, then a 7 game series against the Star Hotshot.
Even if they win game 5, they still need to win 3 in a row to beat SMB, which is highly unlikely. Congratulations to the San Miguel Beermen for winning the 2017 PBA All Filipino Cup!
