The 40th PBA season, as well as the season-ending Governors’ Cup, is already on its homestretch. And with the quick playoff format that the conference has, we already zoomed into the semifinals. Here are the matchups:

Alaska Aces vs Star Hotshots

Top seed Alaska put away the Barangay Ginebra San Miguel in the first try, while the Star Hotshots buckled down to work to eliminate the GlobalPort Batang Pier despite having a twice-to-win disadvantage. Alaska won its meeting against Star in the elims, but with Tim Cone’s Hotshots chugging along fine, expect this one to be a close series.

The Rain or Shine Elasto Painters went through the grinder against Barako Bull in the quarterfinals, having to overcome the Energy in double overtime. They will go up against the San Miguel Beermen, which had to overcome the Meralco Bolts in two games. The Beermen emerged on top against the Elasto Painters in their elimination round meeting, 104-91. The sidelight in this matchup is the brewing rivalry between ROS head coach Yeng Guiao and former E-Painters now current SMB import Arizona Reid.
