PBA Finals Game 7 today; Petron vs San Mig Coffee

The 2013 season of the PBA is down to an ultimate match for all the marbles. Petron Blaze and San Mig Coffee dispute the Governors’ Cup in Game Seven on Friday at the SMART-Araneta Coliseum, with each team looking to complete unfinished business.

The Boosters, who forced a deciding match after winning Game Six last Wednesday, are trying to get back the crown they won in the 2011 edition. That was the last finals appearance as well as the last title for the league’s oldest and winningest franchise.

For Petron, a victory will end two years’ worth of drama for the team, which has underachieved despite boasting one of the league’s most talented lineups.

The Mixers have a second chance at winning the Governors’ Cup this season after being foiled last Wednesday. They will be playing in Game Seven of the tournament for the second straight year, after narrowly losing to the title to the Rain or Shine Elasto Painters last season.

For San Mig Coffee, it’s a final chance to give coach Tim Cone a title this season, which would give the American coach his 15th PBA championship to tie the record currently held by the legendary Baby Dalupan.

Petron will once again rely on the heroics of import Elijah Millsap, who rescued the Boosters from elimination with a brilliant fourth quarter performance in Game Six.

Coach Gee Abanilla, who has a chance to win a title in his first tournament as a PBA head coach, is hoping that his team’s local crew led by season Most Valuable Player Arwind Santos, June Mar Fajardo, Alex Cabagnot, Marcio Lassiter and Chris Lutz can step up to provide Millsap with the necessary support.

They will go up against a San Mig Coffee side that will ride on the all-around game of import Marqus Blakely. Top guns James Yap and Peter June Simon have had their moments in the series, while Marc Pingris and Joe Devance have taken turns handling frontcourt scoring duties for the Mixers.

But San Mig Coffee hopes to get a bigger boost from the young point guard tag team of Mark Barroca and Alex Mallari, who faltered under the pressure in Game Six to combine for just two points.
