Wow, what a thrilling finish between Alaska and Rain or Shine!

The Aces were down 3 when The Beast heave a desperation shot at 25 feet to tie the game at 81-all with 10 seconds remaining. In the ensuing play, Abueva foiled ROS import Bruno Sundov shot which led to a scramble. Baguio picked up the leather and scored the winning lay-up as time expired to give the Aces the victory.
