    CYRUS Baguio believes Alaska had a better chance to win Game Two of the PBA Commissioner’s Cup Finals against Rain or Shine on Sunday night if it would’ve gone into overtime.

    The Aces fell into a 2-0 hole after surrendering a 105-103 decision in Game Two that saw Paul Lee hit the game-winning jumper that beat the regulation buzzer.

    “Sayang, kung nag-overtime sana, may chance pa sana kami kasi marami sa kanila foul trouble,” Baguio said as Beau Belga had five fouls, while Lee, import Pierre Henderson-Niles, and three other locals had four fouls.

    Still, the Aces had a chance to steal the game in regulation and tie the series as they rallied from a late nine-point deficit, banking on a 12-3 run to knot the count at 103, only to have a defensive breakdown in the final play where they failed to box out Lee.

    “Siguro sa sobrang gusto naming manalo, nagkaroon lang ng konting gigil sa depensa,” Baguio admitted. “Nag-scramble eh. Bumagsak kay Paul 'yung tira, malakas 'yung tira ni Beau, bumagsak sa kanya. Walang tao so wala, para sa kanila talaga.”
