The San Miguel Beermen looked good in their first tune up game after June Mar Fajardo's injury, hacking out a 77-63 victory over Rain or Shine Elastopainters in their tune up game at the Acropolis Gym in Quezon City.
San Miguel head coach Leo Austria saw a lot of positive for the Beermen during the game.
"This game give us some confidence dahil Rain or Shine is a very strong team because they have a lot of big players and wing man," said Austria who also commended his players for following their adjustments with Fajardo expected to be out for the Philippine Cup
"Wala kaming big man except si Mo pero hindi na-take advantage ng kalaban namin yung kakulangan namin ng big man and I'm happy for the players because they're trying to do our system which I think nag work para sa amin," said Austria.
The Beermen took control of the game right in the opening period exploding for 25 points while limiting the Elastopainters to just seven points.
SMB then kept their feet on the gas pedal with Tautuaa and Romeo doing most of the damages for the Beermen.
SMB led by 19 at the half, 44-25 and even ballooned by as much as 26 points, in the final frame.
