The 2006-07 PBA Philippine Cup Finals was the championship series of the 2006-07 PBA season's 2006-07 PBA Philippine Cup of the Philippine Basketball Association (PBA). The series was a best of seven affair and was the 92nd championship disputed in the league. The teams competing are first-seed Barangay Ginebra Kings and the second-seed San Miguel Beermen, two of the four San Miguel Corporation-owned teams.

San Miguel won the first two games of the series, with Game 2 going down the wire; Ginebra then won the next two games with 30-point leads. On the pivotal fifth game, the Beermen faltered on the end game as the Kings lead the series for the first time. With their backs against the wall, San Miguel managed to lead with a big margin on Game 6 but the Kings cut the lead and eventually came from behind to win the game, and their seventh championship, with Ginebra point guard Jayjay Helterbrand winning Finals Most Valuable Player honors.

Barangay Ginebra Kings

San Miguel's Danny Seigle is the younger brother of Ginebra's Andy Seigle. Both Ginebra and San Miguel are owned by San Miguel Corporation (SMC). Ginebra coach Jong Uichico was San Miguel's coach when they've last won the championship; Uichico was transferred to Ginebra when Chot Reyes was hired by SMC as the new Beermen coach, after Reyes coached the SMC-backed national team and the Coca-Cola Tigers, another SMC-owned PBA team. Siot Tanquincen, Ginebra's head coach, was demoted to assistant coach capacity; he was previously Uichico's assistant at San Miguel.

Prior to the game, the new perpetual trophy was presented.

The Beermen had an unconventional starting lineup, with Olsen Racela sitting on the bench being replaced by L.A. Tenorio, which caused Jayjay Helterbrand's offensive game to start badly as Tenorio kept tight defense. Red Bull transferee Lordy Tugade, on his third straight Finals appearance, converted three pointers as Mark Caguioa wasn't able to get support from his teammates.

The Beermen, especially Dorian Peña were able to convert several "and one" conversions. Ginebra fell behind by 20 points by halftime and weren't able to catch up.

Facing elimination, the Beermen broke away from the tightly-contested first quarter to lead by 12 points at halftime.

Beermen Chot Reyes benched Best Player of the Conference runner-up Danny Seigle at the start of the third quarter; Ginebra then managed to cut the lead with plays from Helterbrand and Caguioa. With Ginebra rallying and the Ginebra crowd getting louder, Seigle suited back up for the Beermen at the middle of the third quarter as they managed to keep safe distance between them and the Kings.

At the start of the fourth quarter, Ginebra leaned on Johnny Abarrientos and NCAA MVP Sunday Salvacion to cut the lead; Reavis and Mamaril struggled from the foul line even though Beermen generally struggled from the field with Ginebra's zone defense. Ginebra led 92-91 but Lordy Tugade held off Ginebra's advances, with a three-pointer to lead 94-92. Salavacion, who scored eight points in the payoff period, converted a long two-pointer to tie the score, 94-all.

Dondon Hontiveros then missed a lay-up on the other end. San Miguel then grabbed the offensive rebound, with Tugade missing the three-pointer. Helterbrand, on his way out of bounds, caught the ball and called a time-out.

With Kings coach Jong Uichico drawing the play, Reyes put defensive specialist Willy Wilson into the game for the first time. After the inbounds pass, Helterbrand drove towards to the basket. Although Helterbrand missed the lay-up attempt, Wilson was called for a shooting foul, which caused Helterbrand to shoot two freethrows, with 2.9 on the clock.

Helterbrand converted both freethrows as San Miguel sued for time. On the inbounds pass, Olsen Racela passed to a tightly-guarded Tugade at the corner; Tugade missed the three-pointer; Racela rebounded the ball as time expired when his putback off the glass, which could have sent the game into overtime.
