WATCH: Magnolia vs Meralco Game Highlights [May 18, 2018]


Vernon Macklin delivered another win before leaving the Magnolia Hotshots to attend a commitment in the Chinese league.

With a far better clip from the line than Arinze Onuaku, Macklin lifted the Hotshots past the Meralco Bolts, 81-79, in a tight, low-scoring duel in the PBA Commissioner’s Cup at the Smart Araneta Coliseum Friday night.

The Hotshots eventually escaped with a third straight win as Chris Newsome muffed a potential game-tying alley-oop shot at the buzzer.

Magnolia caught up with Alaska Milk at 3-1, half-game behind Rain or Shine (4-1) and TNT KaTropa (4-1), while Meralco dropped down to 3-2.
