On Wednesday, August 31 at 5:45 PM, the decisive Game 5 of the best-of-seven series will take place at the Araneta Coliseum as San Miguel and TNT compete for control of the PBA Philippine Cup finals. 

Jayson Castro, who is now 36 years old, showed he is still among the best in the league by leading the Tropang Giga to a crucial 100-87 victory in Game 4 to square the series at 2-2. This prevented the Tropang Giga from slipping into a hazardous 1-3 hole. 

Castro stole the show by posting a finals-high 26 points, 6 rebounds, 4 assists, and 3 steals on the same night Beermen star June Mar Fajardo earned his ninth Best Player of the Conference plum. TNT also received timely contributions from Roger Pogoy and Mikey Williams, who fired 21 and 15 points, respectively. 

However, given that they have not dropped back-to-back games in this conference, the Beermen are anticipated to fight back with all of their might. 

In order to maintain his strong finals form, Fajardo in particular is adamant about aiding San Miguel in regaining the upper hand. 

The six-time PBA MVP, through four games, averages 20 points, 17.5 rebounds, and 1.3 blocks. 

But Fajardo cannot win alone; the Beermen are also counting on players like starters CJ Perez and Marcio Lassiter, as well as the bench group of Vic Manuel, Jericho Cruz, and Mo Tautuaa, to perform well.
