Two more wins and San Mig Coffee will seal a date with history.

On Thursday, the Coffee Mixers will shoot for a pivotal win against Rain or Shine in the PBA Governors' Cup finals.

San Mig rallied past the Elasto Painters 104-101 Tuesday to take the lead in the best-of-five series and draw closer to achieving a historic Grand Slam (winning all three conferences in a season).

James Yap scored 10 of his 14 points in the final period to lead the Mixers to victory. The two-time league MVP buried back-to-back baskets in the final minute as San Mig successfully came back from 17 points down in the third period.

Yap's three-pointer gave the Mixers a 99-98 edge with 57.8 seconds remaining and followed it up with another jumper to push his team's lead to three points with 16 seconds left.

Rain or Shine had a chance to tie the game but Gabe Norwood muffed a triple and San Mig import Marqus Blakely grabbed the rebound and was immediately sent to the free throw line. The do-it-all reinforcement sank two free throws to give San Mig a 103-98 cushion with 8.1 seconds left.

Rain or Shine went to import Arizona Reid in its next possession and he was fouled while taking a three-pointer. The dreadlocked cager converted all his charities to put his team within two. The Painters quickly sent PJ Simon to the free throw line with 3.6 ticks left. The usually steady shooter missed the first and made the second, giving Rain or Shine a chance to tie the scores and send the game into overtime.

In its final posession, Rain or Shine went to Lee who tried to fish a foul on Marc Pingris as he attempted a three-pointer. There was contact but no foul was called, allowing the Mixers to escape with a victory at the Mall of Asia Arena.

Aside from Yap, six Mixers scored in double digits. Simon led the way with 18 points and seven rebounds while Pingris had 14.

Blakely tallied 13 points and 14 rebounds while Mark Barroca contributed 11 off the bench. Joe Devance and substitute Allein Maliksi chipped in 10 apiece.

Reid led all scorers with 35 points and grabbed 12 rebounds.

Jeffrei Chan added 17 points while Lee contributed 12 points and four assists. Beau Belga had 11 points and seven rebounds.
