The only two PBA perpetual champions are set to square off for the first time this season as three-time defending All-Filipino champion San Miguel Beer take on rival TNT on the road Saturday.
Ending 2017 with a win, the Beermen are out to start their new year with a victory as well and take over the top of the standings.
San Miguel currently has a 2-0 card in the All-Filipino, the only team without a loss so far.
Meanwhile, the KaTropa are fresh from their first win of the season against Alaska, and a victory against the Beermen will force a six-way tie for first place early in the year.
Tip off for the San Miguel-TNT game will be at 5:00 p.m. at the University of San Agustin Gym in Iloilo City.
