Magnolia puts away NLEX in Game Six, earn right to face SMB in PBA finals. MAGNOLIA finally got over the hump after last season’s heartbreaks, eliminating NLEX, 96-89, on Tuesday night to advance to the finals of the PBA Philippine Cup.

After falling short of the finals the last three conferences, the Hotshots found the killer’s instinct this time, finishing off the Road Warriors in six games in their best-of-seven series.

Ian Sangalang and Mark Barroca hit the biggest shots down the stretch as the Hotshots pounced on a shorthanded Road Warriors side that lost JR Quinahan due to an early ejection apart from injured Kevin Alas.
