San Mig Takes Lead 2-1 Against Rain Or Shine

San Mig Super Coffee Mixers striked again on Rain Or Shine 77-76 taking the lead 2-1 in the current PLDT myDSL PBA Philippine Cup Finals at the Smart Araneta Coliseum on a Wednesday night. The Mixers posted a back-to-back win on the Elasto Painters to changed the tide of the series on their favor after a heartbreaking defeat in Game 1. 

They stayed strong at the crunchtime that featured an anybody's ballgame of 18 lead changes and a single point margin at the end of each quarter. Rain Or Shine leads by 1 point for all three quarters but it was San Mig taking the last thus escaping with a thin 1-point margin victory. It was a hard earned Mixers' win, but not until in the last possession of Rain Or Shine with 10 seconds left that Jeff Chan missed a three-point shot that could have been the game winning shot for ROS.

The featured "Best Player of the Game" was no other than the birthday boy, Joe Devance with his 13 points, 9 rebounds and 4 assists while Peter June Simon lead all Mixers with 14 points. Two other Mixers scored in double figure, James Yap and Ian Sangalang with 13 and 12 points respectively.

Paul Lee had a game-high 23 points, Chan chipped in 11 points while Cruz had 10 points but it was not enough to hold off the Mixers from winning the tight game.

Game 4 will be on Friday, February 21, at the Smart-Araneta Coliseum at 7pm.
