San Miguel vs Star Hotshot (replay) result, recap – June 14, 2017, PAUL Lee gallantly played through the pain in Game Three of the PBA Commissioner’s Cup semifinals between Star and San Miguel after sustaining a leg injury the last time the two teams met on Monday night.
Lee hurt his leg after colliding with Chris Ross at center court during the third quarter of Game Two which the Beermen won, 77-76, to level the best-of-five series at 1-1.
The 29-year-old Lee played hurt the rest of the game following the collision with Ross. He missed three crucial shots in the end game, including a potential game-winning jumper at the buzzer, and finished with only three points on 1-of-8 shooting.
Coach Chito Victolero opted not to start Lee on Wednesday and instead, had rookie Jio Jalalon taking his place.
But obviously Lee shrugged off the injury as he scored nine points on 4-of-5 shooting in the five minutes he saw action in the first quarter which ended at 32-28 in favor of San Miguel.
