Marcio Lassiter banked in a crucial stepback three-point shot to give the San Miguel Beermen a pulsating 111-110 Game 3 win and a 2-1 series edge over the Star Hotshots Wednesday at the Smart-Araneta Coliseum.
Chris Ross was beasting all-game long as he tallied 27 points (18 in the second half), eight rebounds, eight assists, and three steals.
Charles Rhodes also delivered an all-around outing, with 36 points, seven boards, four dimes, three steals, and three blocks.
Ricardo Ratliffe’s 44-point, 19-rebound performance was put to waste as they failed to bring home the victory.
The Beermen are now a win away from getting back to the finals but Austria knows that they have to keep their focus.
