Game 7 Tonight Is 22nd in PBA History


Tonights game between Petron Blaze and San Mig Coffee will mark the 22nd time that a Game 7 will be played in a Philippine Basketball Association (PBA) finals. Interestingly, the two teams have been in this situation seven times before. Both have identical records three wins, four losses. Petron beat San Mig Coffee, and, playing by its former name San Miguel Beer, won against Purefoods in the 1988 Open Conference and again in 1992 All-Filipino Conference. San Mig Coffee head coach Tim Cone has a 5-4 record in Game 7, and 1-1 with the team as B-Meg downed Talk N Text in the sudden-death in last seasons Commissioners Cup but lost to Rain or Shine in the Governors Cup. Petron Blaze mentor Gee Abanilla, on the other hand, is eyeing to become the second coach in PBA history to win a title in a Game 7 after Ryan Gregorio steered Purefoods TJ to the 2002 Governors Cup versus Alaska (then under Cone).

There were 11 PBA teams that went on to win Game 7 after taking Game 6, and the last team to do the trick was San Miguel Beer in 2009 opposite Barangay Ginebra in the Fiesta Cup.

Here is what they say. James Yap (San Mig Coffee) 3rd career Game 7 Finals Lahat ng games sa Finals all-out, pero ito do-or-die na to. Focus and kung sino ang consistent sa defense yun ang malaking chance na manalo. Nakuha nila Game 6, so move on lang kami. Physical ang Game 6, mas physical sa Game 7. Ganun naman sa Finals, walang gusto magpa-talo. Kaya lahat ng natutuhan mo sa basketball, ilabas mo na sa Game 7. Marc Pingris (San Mig Coffee) 3rd career Game 7 Finals Kung sino yung may pinaka-malaking puso na manalo, kung sino ang may pinaka-malaking puso na mag-laro sa Game 7, yun ang mananalo. …
