Magnolia is Back in PBA Finals

Magnolia Hotshots are Back in the PBA Finals 2024

The Magnolia Chicken Timplados Hotshots have advanced to the PBA Finals after defeating the Phoenix Super LPG Fuel Masters 89-79 in Game 4 of the Semifinals during the league’s Season 48 Commissioner’s Cup. The triumph occurred Wednesday night at the Mall of Asia Arena in Pasay City.

Coach Chito Victolero and his side avoided a repetition of Game 3, when they gave up a significant lead in the second half, allowing Phoenix to extend the series to a fourth game.

While the Fuel Masters attempted a comeback in the third quarter, cutting the lead to two points (53-51 with 6:53 remaining), the Hotshots answered forcefully. A 15-0 run, capped by a three-pointer from Paul Lee, changed the tide significantly in Magnolia’s favor, clinching the victory and eliminating the tenacious Phoenix team.

Despite Phoenix’s efforts to mount another comeback in the fourth quarter, including a three-pointer by Sean Manganti that cut the lead to 78-68, Magnolia held fast. Tyler Bey’s slam dunk and Mark Barroca’s three-pointer effectively ended the Fuel Masters’ season.

Magnolia will now meet the San Miguel Beermen in the Finals, with a best-of-seven series beginning on Friday. Magnolia’s grit and dedication were on full display in their triumph against Phoenix as they prepared for the difficult match against San Miguel.
