It was playoff James Yap.
Averaging 7.3 points in the first three games of the 2019 PBA Philippine Cup semifinals, Yap drilled one big shot after another as Rain or Shine clawed back from 21 points down to make it a nailbiter late in the fourth.
Rain or Shine assistant coach Chris Gavina, who was calling the shots in lieu of the ejected Caloy Garcia, designed a play for the two-time MVP with 3.1 ticks remaining.
Yap, who has countless of game-winners under his belt, got the ball and dribbled for a couple of seconds at the top of key before missing on a three-point attempt that could have sent the game into overtime.
Magnolia went on to take Game 4, 94-91 and evened the best-of-seven series at 2-all on Monday at the Smart Araneta Coliseum.
