SOURCEESPN5


Magnolia came out well prepared from a 16-day break and blasted NLEX, 116-89, to assure itself of at least a playoff shot at the last quarterfinal berth in the PBA Commissioner’s Cup at the MOA Arena in Pasay City Wednesday night.

Wayne Chism marked another PBA return with a 27-point game while Paul Lee came through with 21 markers as the Hotshots repulsed the Road Warriors and thus tied the GlobalPort Batang Pier and the Barangay Ginebra Kings at 5-5 with two play dates left in the elims.

GlobalPort and Ginebra fight for an outright playoff entry at 7 p.m. over at the Cuneta Astrodome Friday. Magnolia also shoots for an automatic playoff passage in going up against San Miguel Beer at 6:45 p.m. Saturday at the MOA Arena.

The Batang Pier, the Gin Kings and the Hotshots all automatically advance to the quarters, though, if the Phoenix Fuel Masters, at 4-6, drop their game against the Alaska Milk Aces Friday.
