The San Miguel Beermen has tied the series to 2-2 after they have beaten the Magnolia Hotshots Pambansang Manok, 114-98.
Similar to their Game One clash, June Mar Fajardo has surpassed the 30-point mark but the big difference is that the tonight’s result is a victory for his squad.
“The Kraken” poured 31 points and snagged 14 rebounds and proved that he is indeed the 2019 PBA Philippine Cup Best Player of the Conference.
However, winning that award isn’t his priority instead his eyes are focused on the ultimate prize which is All-Filipino crown.
“Hindi yun yung goal ko yung BPC pero thankful ako nakuha ko,” said Fajardo. “Buti nakuha namin ang panalong ‘to nagstep-up kami lahat nasunod namin yung game plan namin,” he added.
Terrence Romeo who struggled in the first three encounters came out very much efficient in Game Four. The former scoring champion sunk three three-pointers and was sharp from the field as he registered 18 points and five assists
Jio Jalalon and Mark Barroca each scored 22 points in a losing effort.
Rafi Reavis who was in his best performance in Game Three got shutdown as he was only limited to nine points and five rebounds.
The 2019 PBA Philippine Cup Finals will resume on Wednesday for its Game Four match.
Game Five of the 2019 PBA Philippine Cup will resume on Friday and will be played at the Big Dome.
