MANILA — San Miguel Beermen went on a tear to steal a 99-94 win and close out Game 5 of the PBA Commissioner’s Cup Finals against TNT KaTropa at the Smart Araneta Coliseum in Quezon City on Wednesday night.

The Beermen finished the game with a 30-9 rally capped by an 8-0 run highlighted by Chris McCullough’s game-winning floater with 26.2 seconds left to take a 3-2 lead against the KaTropa in the best-of-seven series.
