ALASKA goes for a tie in the PBA Governors’ Cup finals on Wednesday in Game Four when the Aces go up against Magnolia at the Smart-Araneta Coliseum.
The Aces trail the series, 2-1, heading into their 7 p.m. match-up at the Big Dome.
Alaska finally claimed a win in the best-of-seven series on Sunday, beating Magnolia, 100-71, in Game Three at the Ynares Center in Antipolo City.
Alaska coach Alex Compton, however, doesn’t expect another lopsided result in the series.
“Game Four, I don’t think will be anything like this whatsoever,” said Compton. “You ask me, the team that has been playing the best basketball in the PBA is not Alaska. It’s been Magnolia, consistently, throughout the conference.”
“While it would be great to hope that this would happen every game, that’s like a fairy tale. That’s not going to happen,” said Compton.
The Aces hope to string up another big game from Mike Harris, who scored a series-high 36 points for his team in the Game Three win.
Magnolia coach Chito Victolero hopes his wards can bounce back quickly and move closer to the Governors’ Cup title.
“Give credit to the Alaska team. They were aggressive and their energy na binibigay nila, siguro medyo hindi kami makasabay,” said Victolero.
