Arwind Santos hustled hard and locked himself in an intense fight for possession with Mark Barroca and Jio Jalalon in one play in the fourth quarter.

That best demonstrated the energy and intensity the San Miguel Beermen brought in from a six-day breather.

And it came aplenty as the Beermen walloped the Magnolia Pambansang Manok Hotshots, 111-87, in their Easter showdown for the crucial 2-1 lead in their PBA Philippine Cup best-of-seven championship series at the Smart Araneta Coliseum.

The Beermen started strong and finished even stronger to make it two in a row in the series following a 92-77 victory in Game Two a week ago over at the MOA Arena in Pasay City.

They will be out to move in the threshold of an all-Filipino four-peat in Game Four at the Big Dome Wednesday.

Like in the previous game, San Miguel was a dominant side in Game Three, eventually putting Magnolia away at 92-71 on a lethal 15-0 run in the fourth quarter.

The scores:

San Miguel Beermen 111 — Lassiter 24, Fajardo 21, Ross 14, Santos 14, Heruela 11, Espinas 9, Cabagnot 5, Ganuelas-Rosser 5, Pessumal 4, Semerad 2, Vigil 2, Lanete 0, Mamaril 0.

Magnolia Hotshots 87 — Barroca 22, Lee 15, Ramos 12, Simon 10, Dela Rosa 6, Gamalinda 6, Jalalon 6, Sangalang 6, Brondial 0, Herndon 0, Mendoza 0, Pascual 0.

Quarters: 29-22, 50-49, 75-68, 111-87.
