The Tigers opened their MPBL bubble campaign with an impressive victory yesterday as they toppled the defending champions, Knights, in their race-to-three victory and capture the Lakan Cup trophy.
Mark Yee sparked the Davao Occidental squad along with teammate Bonbon Custodio late in the fourth quarter where they pushed Game 1 to another five minutes of basketball action. Yet, it was their team’s defense that boosted their chance to take the series advantage led by “Ilonggo Superman” Billy Ray Robles. Robles swatted the possible game-winner layup attempt from Mike Ayonayon.
The Knights were looking good in the fourth quarter particularly at the 2:24 mark where they’re leading by eight points. However, Davao Occidental has something to offer that spoiled that comfortable lead.
It will be certain that the boys from San Juan wanted to avenge their Game 1 defeat yet they only have one day to tweak their plays in order to reduce the Finals series to only best-of-three.
