MANILA, Philippines – To end or to equalize?
Barangay Ginebra seeks to close out the 2018 PBA Commissioner's Cup finals while San Miguel aims to stay alive when they meet in Game 6 at the Mall of Asia Arena on Wednesday, August 8.
The Gin Kings, who seized a 3-2 lead in the best-of-7 clash following an 83-87 Game 5 win last Sunday, August 5, will try to prevent the series from going the distance.
The Beermen, meanwhile, will look to revive their winning ways after absorbing back-to-back losses to force a do-or-die Game 7.
Ginebra's Scottie Thompson will be a marked man for San Miguel after he scored 20 points to go with 11 rebounds and in assists in Game 5. (READ: Cone: Scottie Thompson 'reminds me of Westbrook')
