With time down to under a minute left in the payoff period and the San Miguel Beermen up by 8 over bitter rival TNT KaTropa, June Mar Fajardo received a pass down low from Marcio Lassiter. The 6-foot-10 three-time MVP then proceeded to attack the basket against Mo Tautuaa. Fajardo dribbled once then went up for a one-handed floater which hit nothing but net.
Upon landing however, Fajardo visibly grimaced in pain and limped a bit on the way to the other side of the court. He was also seen communicating with the SMB bench and clutching his right calf.
A timeout was called after Roger Pogoy buried a triple and Fajardo was immediately substituted.
