PBA moves Game 7 to Sunday

The Philippine Basketball Association has listened to its fans.

Due to public demand, Game Seven of the 2022-23 PBA Commissioner’s Cup Finals will take place on Sunday at the gargantuan Philippine Arena in Bocaue, Bulacan.

Initially, the series decider was scheduled for Friday.

“Sa kahilingan ng mga fans, ang Game Seven ay gagawin natin sa Sunday sa Philippine Arena at 5:45,” said PBA commissioner Willie Marcial moments after Bay Area’s 87-84 Game Six win over Ginebra that drew 22,361 fans.

The Finals series between the Barangay and the Dragons has been a blockbuster hit for the league that is badly in need of draws.

Game One at SM Mall of Asia Arena drew 18,252 fans, while Game Two over at the Big Dome had a spectator count of 16,044.

The next three MOA games would draw 15,004, 17,236, and 21,823 fans. Then came the 22,361 on Wednesday evening.

The league is hoping to break the 54,048 record attendance that they drew during Game 7 of the 2017 Governors’ Cup Finals, also at the Philippine Arena.

Oddly enough, Ginebra has won all the odd games in the series. And they are hoping that seven will be their lucky number.

Bay Area, though, is hoping to break the trend to become the third guest team to win a PBA title.

The second game of each PBA gameday is live-streamed on SMART Sports.
