MANILA, Philippines – Not today.

The Aces stepped up their energy some more after avoiding a sweep in Game 4 as they executed down the stretch and controlled the pace of the game with their stingy defense.
Newly-minted Best Player of the Conference Calvin Abueva starred anew with a game-high 20-point performance including 13 rebounds and two blocks.
He also made back-to-back key plays that gave Alaska enough cushion against a Rain or Shine last-ditch comeback.
Rain or Shine, on the other hand, struggled with its offense with only two guys in double figures – Jeff Chan (17 points) and Paul Lee (16 points).
Import Pierre Henderson-Niles had only 6 points with 8 rebounds as he went 3-of-9 from the field.
