    “That sense of urgency in terms of executing, in terms of consistency, the effort and the desire, nagawa naman namin,” said Magnolia coach Chito Victolero.

    The Hotshots stayed the course despite losing a 77-75 lead after Robert Bolick scored a three with 53.5 seconds left.

    “Wala akong masasabi about the effort of my players even in the last two games. It was about the breaks of the game the last two games and also on executing our plays in the end. Now, we did a good job on executing especially down the stretch. We had that discipline and character,” said Victolero.


    Paul Lee had 12 points in his return after suffering a back spasms on Sunday, while Aris Dionisio also had a solid outing with 12 points and nine rebounds.

    Mark Barroca extended his consecutive games streak to 496 after he finished with eight points despite nursing a calf injury.
