No team has won 2 straight in this series and Purefoods hopes to break that tonight in Game 5. James Yap has to keep himself aggressive driving inside and getting fouled and Purefoods defense has to be very tight since San Miguel has many players that can score. Purefoods has to share the ball to keep the defense guessing as evident in Game 4 where Purefoods had 24 assists.

A win today will keep Purefoods one step ahead of returning back to the All-Filipino Finals vs the Alaska Aces who swept Ginebra in their 7 game series.

Please support the Purefoods TJ Giants! This is a very crucial game for our team. Go Giants!
