The Meralco Bolts knocked down huge baskets in overtime to finally slam the door on the crippled but hard-fighting Star Hotshots, 91-88, on Thursday night, thus completing a sweep of their PBA Governors’ Cup semifinals and booking a return trip to the finals.

Jared Dillinger broke the game’s final deadlock with a booming three-pointer to give Meralco the lead, 86-83, with 4:08 left in overtime. Ranidel de Ocampo then nailed a long two-pointer with 1:21 left, giving the Bolts a five-point cushion.

Star’s Rafi Reavis hit an undergoal stab to cut Meralco’s lead to three. But Cliff Hodge responded with a back-breaking three-pointer, giving the Bolts a 91-85 edge. Mark Barroca quickly fired a trey of his own four seconds later to revive the Hotshots’ flickering hopes.

With seven ticks left, Star won a jump ball but Jio Jalolon’s last-gasp attempt at a game-tying three-pointer was off as the final buzzer sounded.

The Bolts now await the winner of the Brgy. Ginebra-TNT series.
