The Commissioner’s Cup and the Governors’ Cup are the second and third conferences in the upcoming season.
The much-awaited battle of the giants between June Mar Fajardo and Greg Slaughter lived up to the hype, with “The Kraken” getting the last laugh as his San Miguel Beermen romped “Gregzilla” and Barangay Ginebra San Miguel, 100-82, in the SMART BRO PBA Philippine Cup Sunday at PhilSports Arena.

Slaughter got 21 points from twin tower partner Japeth Aguilar but Ginebra’s offensive struggles especially from downtown (0–of-12) doomed their chances as they couldn’t stop the Beermen juggernaut that went full steam in the second half.
After a tight game in the first two quarters, San Miguel pulled away in the third frame, turning a 47-43 halftime lead into a 70-54 deficit after an 11-1 run sparked by Lassiter’s back-to-back triples.
