The fifth game of the PBA All-Filipino Conference finals is a do-or-die match between two of the most formidable teams in history; the San Miguel Beermen and the Barangay Ginebra.
The former wanted to end the battle just to snag the coveted Perpetual Trophy while the latter wanted to stage a comeback by any means necessary. With SMB leads at 3-1, looks like the fight for the title is a narrow difference between a win and a loss.
At last, in the eyes of thousands of spectators gathered at the Smart Araneta Coliseum, the San Miguel Beermen made history after defeating the Barangay Ginebra at the score of 91-85. The team's MVP, Arwind Santos, scored 21 points, 8 rebounds, and 2 blocks, despite performing less than what Brgy. Ginebra's Japeth Aguilar did.
This is the second time the Perpetual Trophy is handed to the winning team since the Talk N Txters.
Congratulations for the Beermen's historical win!
