Pregame – The San Mig Coffee Mixers will try to close out its 2013-2014 PBA Philippine Cup finals series against the Rain or Shine Elastopainters this Sunday afternoon. The Mixers lead the best of-seven series 3 games to 1 after winning Game 4 last Friday, 93-90.

Only one team in PBA history has been able to recover from a 3-1 deficit during a finals series. During the 1991 First Conference, the Ginebra San Miguel squad led by playing coach Robert Jaworski won three consecutive games to defeat Shell Rimula X for the championship. Rudy Distrito’s jumper with only five seconds left in regulation sealed the win for them.
