    Napakalabo para sa Phoenix manalo sa series na ito. SMB is too much for them, experience wise and talent wise. Pero sana lumaba padin ang Phoenix. #FightToThePhoenix

    Mapapalaban ang SMB sa physicality ng Phoenix. Buti may mga bala si Coach Alas sa mga bigs, may Kramer, Marcelo at Chua na may magandang leverage na pwede bumantay kay JMF pero mahihirapan pigilan. 

    Sana magtuloy tuloy ang shooting slump ni Marcio para naman may laban ng Phoenix ng konti :lol: Sana naman kumamada ng maganda si Wright. Arwind vs Perkins, lamang si Perkins sa youth at strength. Lamang naman si Arwind sa experience, beterano na si Boy Bagyo ang tagal na sa liga niyan. Sa Guards naman eh medyo mahirap contain yung Ross, Cabagnot tapos may Terrence pa off the bench. Dun medyo kulang ang Phoenix. Pero lets see.

    PHX will be a tough match up for smb, but beating the Beermen four times in seven games is unlikely, especially if SMB finds enough motivation to go all out like they did in Game 3. TnT thought they had smb figured out, and the first two games does seem TnT can go all the way, then suddenly smb woke up in the nick of time and decided its time to show what champions are made of. A loaded TnT was facing a 26-point deficit in a do-or-die game, that is unheard of, unless the other team is so locked in as the Beermen were.
    PHX will surely make it interesting and they have the tools, same as TnT, to match up against the Beermen, but if Junmar will be 100% in this series and his injured knee suffered in the quarters doesnt bother him, then PHX will be left thinking dapat nag no2 seed na lang sila hehe... but surely this is not a walk in the park, pag chill lang ang laro ng beermen dito and they take it easy they will surely go down. Likely SMB in 5 or 6

  • jolabuevajolabueva Member PEx Influencer ⭐⭐⭐
    Dehado kami dito! Pero sabi ko nga mahirapan man lang ang SMB at sana makachamba isa man lang panalo OK na ako... Di na ako maghahangad ng iba! Sobrang achievement na nila na makarating sa semis! Di na ako magpapakaipokrito gaya ng iba dyan! :dizzy:

    SMB IN 2. :rofl:

    I really want Phoenix to win this series. Not only it will end yung dominance ng SMB sa AFC, makakakita pa tayo ng bago sa Finals.

    But looking at SMB's lineup and on how June Mar carried his team on the decider game vs TNT, paano mo tatalunin yung ganun kalakas na team? Yung ganun ka dominanteng player? May nabasa ako na pag nakapasok daw SMB sa Finals, pinagtatalunan nalang kung sino magiging runner up. lol

    Ginebra has the tools to beat smb, and the coach to make it happen... not saying they will likely go all the way since tambak din inabot ng Ginebra sa smb nung elims but they have the realistic manpower at least on paper. The challenge for PHX is how to impose that double team without leaving the shooters, and smb has a lot of that. The beermen struggled in their triples sa quarters partly they were just missing them but the bigger factor was that there were very few clean open looks coming off the double team since TnT was employing a delayed double but junmar adjusted and attacked early instead of waiting for the double to arrive, so the shooters didnt get the clean looks but junmar dominated the paint. Its a pick ur poison, smb has very little weaknesses at this point to exploit. If its a short series ulit and smb plays relaxed bball then that’s when they are most vulnerable PHX definitely can pull off an upset. But its a best of 7, in every long series, the better team always comes out on top, makatsamba ka man ng 1 or 2 games, you will need four.
    The one thing going for PHX is they are healthy and have a lot of quality players at their disposal and also have a legit go-to-guy in matthew wright plus being the top seed and having beaten smb in the elims should give them confidence, tho smb played without CS in that game, and we know how CS played in game3 sa quarters to complement junmar’s inside game. Should be a fun and well matched semis series.

    PHX also playing ispired basketball. reaching semis and topping the elims as no. 1 is already a big feat. taas morale ng mga to. SMB should match it.

    SMB in 5 or 6. :)
