MANILA, Philippines – One team may seem more desperate for a win, but expect Magnolia and Alaska to bring the same intensity on the floor when they clash in Game 3 of the 2018 PBA Governors’ Cup finals.
The Hotshots shoot for a commanding 3-0 lead in the best-of-seven championship series after claiming the first two games, but the Aces look bent on trimming the series deficit to avoid a potential sweep.
After Magnolia romped their way into the 100-84 series-opening win , it had a harder time against Alaska in Game 2.
But it pulled through in crunchtime en route to a 77-71 triumph for a 2-0 series lead.
But Alaska head coach Alex Compton didn’t exactly like how that match turned out as he blasted the PBA officiating for what he deemed were non-calls on Magnolia guards Jio Jalalon and Mark Barroca.
Despite the frustration, the Aces vie to keep their focus now that they have their backs against the wall.
Game 3 is at 6:30 pm on Sunday, December 9, at the Ynares Center in Antipolo City.
