PBA Replay San Miguel vs Ginebra

PBA Replay San Miguel vs Ginebra. The San Miguel Beermen leaned on Arwind Santos’ prowess in the clutch to stave off the hard-fighting Barangay Ginebra San Miguel, 72-70, in their intense Oppo PBA Philippine Cup clash on Sunday at SMART-Araneta Coliseum.

Santos finished with a double-double of 10 points and 12 rebounds and came up with huge plays down the stretch to spoil the Gin Kings’ comeback from 10 points in the fourth quarter.

San Miguel extended its win streak to six games for a league-best 7-1 record.

The defending champions were on the verge of securing the win with over two minutes left after building a 10-point lead, 72-62, off a 14-4 spurt.

Santos was instrumental in that run, scoring six points to ignite that run in a closely fought game.

But Ginebra refused to go down and displayed its “Never Say Die” attitude. Joe Devance and LA Tenorio fired two consecutive triples to spark an 8-0 run that trimmed their deficit to just two points, 72-70, with 54 seconds left.
