SOURCESports5


The Magnolia Hotshots proved to be too big a roadblock for NLEX to hurdle.

The Hotshots produced a more all-around effort, especially down the stretch, in stumping the Road Warriors, 96-89, Tuesday at the Smart Araneta Coliseum to advance to the PBA Philippine Cup finals series.

Ian Sangalang, Mark Barroca and Jio Jalalon shone the most for Magnolia as it wrapped up the best-of-seven semi-finals duel, 4-2, and made it to a similar race-to-four matchup against titleholder San Miguel Beer in a championship series that starts Friday.

Sangalang bucked early foul trouble to finish with 15 points and 11 rebounds while Barroca also had his own double-double with 14 and 10.

Jalalon finished with a series-high 13 assists to go with his 11 points, aside from alternating with Barroca and Rome dela Rosa in defending Kiefer Ravena. Even seldom-used Kyle Pascual did his part with 10 markers.
