The GAME 2 of the best-of-7 semi-final series between the San Miguel Beermen and the Barangay Ginebra San Miguel was very exciting. The Beermen was able to win the game even though they are trailing the whole time after Marcio Lassiter tipped the ball in, in the dying seconds of the over time period.

SMB capitalized a whopping 30 points from Ginebra's mistakes while Ginebra got 23 from SMB's turnovers.

The breakout game of Prince Caperal was spoiled wherein he scored a career-high of 26 points.

For GAME3 which is on March 13 at MOA Arena, it is a must-win game situation for Ginebra because they cannot afford to go down 0-3 against SMB. A win will give them a breather and can even take the tie in GAME4.
