Latest PBA News Today, EsballPH HaloWin Bet predicts the San Miguel Beermen will keep their winning record spotless as they face the Blackwater Bossing on Wednesday, February 1 for the 2023 PBA Governors Cup.
The San Miguel Beermen, under its new head coach Jorge Gallent, is poised to win its second win against the Blackwater Bossing when the two teams face off on Wednesday.
Before the match-up of the two teams, the San Miguel Beermen currently stands at a 1-0 win-lose standing after winning their match against the Phoenix Super LPG Fuel Masters, 114-93.
Meanwhile, the Blackwater Bossing have a 1-1 record, losing to the NLEX Road Warriors, 102-124, before barely escaping the Phoenix Super LPG Fuel Masters, 108-105.
Although the San Miguel Beermen have a new tactician in Jorge Gallent, the system of former head coach Leo Austria was still visible in the team.
The San Miguel Beermen would not have a major adjustment under coach Jorge Gallent since he once had been the interim head coach of the squad in their five-game winning streak in the previous Commissioners Cup before coach Leo Austria returned to the bench.
Meanwhile, Coach Ariel Vanguardia of the Blackwater Bossing only has two wins under his belt, one in the PBA Commissioners Cup and one in the PBA Governors Cup.
Between the San Miguel Beermen and the Blackwater Bossing, it is most likely that the San Miguel Beermen will take the victory.
San Miguel Past game VS the Phoenix Super LPG Fuel Masters
In San Miguel Beermen’s first game this Governors’ Cup, they proved that they don’t need any adjustments under head coach Jorge Gallent as they defeat coach Jamike Jarin and Phoenix Super LPG Fuel Masters. The Phoenix Super LPG Fuel Masters skid down to 0-3 win-loss standing, losing to teams TNT Tropang Giga and Blackwater Bossing.

The squad of coach Jorge Gallent also leads in the rebounding department with 50, and in the assists department with 34. The San Miguel Beermen also had 48 points in the paint, and 27 points from turnovers.
If the San Miguel Beermen continue to play how they played during their match-up against the Phoenix Super LPG Fuel Masters, they have a high chance of playing in the playoffs under their new head coach.
Blackwater Bossing Past Game Against NLEX Road Warriors
In Blackwater Bossing's first game this conference, the team suffered a 22-point defeat against the NLEX Road Warriors and its head coach Yeng Guiao. Blackwater Bossing import Shawn Glover is the lone bright spot for them with 26 points, five rebounds, and seven assists. However, Shawn Glover had eight huge turnovers.

The game was tied at 70 points in the last four minutes of the third quarter until the Blackwater Bossing ran out of gas and the NLEX Road Warriors continued its momentum and never looked back until the fourth quarter.
If the Blackwater Bossing learn how to play consistently in their matchups, they can win against several teams, especially with their import Shawn Glover at the helm.
Blackwater Bossing Past Game Against Phoenix Super LPG Fuel Masters
In Blackwater Bossing's second game this conference, they quickly bounced back against the Phoenix Super LPG Fuel Masters, 108-105. Blackwater Bossing's import Shawn Glover erupted for a double-double performance with 31 points and 13 rebounds, while Baser Amer added 17 points.
Renato Ular and Yousef Taha combined for 24 points, while Rashawn Mccarthy had nine.
The Blackwater Bossing once again led statistically with 46% shooting efficiency in 43 out of 92 shooting, 52% in two-point field goals, and 37% in three-point field goals. They also led in the defense with 55 rebounds and 28 assists.
The Blackwater Bossing only loses in steals, blocks, turnovers, personal fouls, points in the paint, points from turnovers, and fast break points. However, it would not deny them from getting victory.
Since the beginning of the game, the Blackwater Bossing dominated the match as they showed their consistency, with the Phoenix Super LPG Fuel Masters just leading for just a few minutes.
San Miguel Beermen and Blackwater Bossing Past head-to-head matchups
In the past five head-to-head matchups between the San Miguel Beermen and the Blackwater Bossing, the San Miguel Beermen won four but the only game that the Blackwater Bossing won was in the previous conference at the 2022-23 PBA Commissioners Cup.
With Cameron Krutwig as their import, the Blackwater Bossing managed to snatch the game in the hands of San Miguel Beermen, who was then under the tutelage of head coach Leo Austria, 109-106.
However, PBA News Today thinks this one win matters a lot for the Blackwater Bossing as it was the only win they have at the Commissioners Cup. If they want to continue winning against the San Miguel Beermen, who is the most winningest team in the PBA, they need to be consistent behind their import, Shawn Glover, who also needs to avoid having too many turnovers.
Unless a miracle would happen, the San Miguel Beermen would not lose against the Blackwater Bossing, especially under head coach Jorge Gallent, whose appointment as the team’s head tactician drew some issues for PBA Governors Cup.
A team that has a legacy like San Miguel Beermen would not be defeated by a team like the Blackwater Bossing, who only have 52 wins in its entire 8-year history.
