    MANNY V. Pangilinan expressed his disappointment over the officiating of Game 3 of the PBA Philippine Cup Finals between TnT and Magnolia.

    Fans who responded to Pangilinan’s tweet mostly cited a foul called on TnT guard Brian Heruela. Video replays showed Heruela barely touched Paul Lee in the disputed play in the second quarter.

    Game 3 was without a doubt the most physical in the best-of-seven series by far and it led to Troy Rosario being sent to the hospital after sustaining a dislocated left pinkie finger.

    The incident happened at the 3:02 mark of the third when Rosario landed hard on the floor after a flagrant foul penalty one called on Jackson Corpuz.

    Corpuz was ejected since he already committed a technical foul early in the game.

    Despite the loss, TNT still holds a 2-1 lead in the finals series following two lopsided wins, thanks to the offensive brilliance of rookie Mikey Williams.
