WATCH: Arwind Santos bumps Jericho Cruz; Cruz retaliates with an elbow swing to the head!


With time down to less than 2 minutes and San Miguel comfortably ahead by 10 points over TNT, Marcio Lassiter stole the ball off Roger Pogoy and then completed it by passing the ball to a streaking Chris Ross who drove in for the easy two.

Arwind Santos acted as the trailer and as soon as Ross made his move, he gave Jericho Cruz a slight bump, something that did not sit well with Cruz. He immediately charged towards Santos and retaliated with an elbow swing to the head.

Cooler heads were then able to separate the two.

Cruz was charged with a Flagrant Foul Penalty 1 while Santos was called for a technical foul.

The 36-year old SMB team captain was ejected from game as it was already his 2nd technical.

The win catapulted the Beermen to the semis while the loss sent TNT out of the playoffs of the 2018 Philippine Cup.
