Barangay Ginebra San Miguel and Meralco take on separate opponents to determine their respective playoff seedings in the final playdate of the Philippine Cup elimination round Sunday at the SM Mall of Asia Arena.
The Bolts take on the San Mig Coffee Mixers in the opener at 4 p.m. before the Gin Kings battle the Talk ‘N Text Tropang Texters in the nightcap at 6:30 p.m.
Meralco and Ginebra are tied at fifth and sixth places, and their quarterfinal opponents will depend on the results of Sunday’s games.
Because Meralco won its lone match with Ginebra this conference, a win by the Bolts or a loss by the Gin Kings will result in a playoff pairing between Meralco and Alaska as well as Rain or Shine and Ginebra. Each of those matchups will be a best-of-three series.
A win by Ginebra and a loss by Meralco would allow the Gin Kings to leapfrog the Bolts. That would set up a quarterfinal clash between Rain or Shine and Meralco as well as Alaska and Ginebra.
The games don’t hold any meaning for Talk ‘N Text and San Mig Coffee, which are assured of finishing first and second after the eliminations, respectively. The two teams are locked in against their playoff opponents, with each squad enjoying a twice-to-beat advantage.
The Tropang Texters will be taking on eighth seed Air 21, while the Mixers will face No. 7 Petron Blaze in the quarterfinals.
