MANILA--The PBA Commissioner's Cup playoffs are on!
The quarterfinal phase of the mid-season conference will commence starting on Monday night at the Smart Araneta Coliseum in Quezon City.
TNT and San Miguel will face off in the first game at 4:30 p.m., while Ginebra battles Meralco in the second game at 7 p.m. as their best-of-three series begin.
The four aforementioned teams ended up at their respective seeds following the results of the matches on Saturday night.
The KaTropa locked in the third seed with a win over the top-seeded Rain Or Shine Elasto Painters, while the Beermen, despite a loss to the Magnolia Hotshots, kept them from scoring a rout to secure the sixth seed. The development also led to the sealing of the Bolts-Barangay series.
