MANILA, Philippines – San Mig Coffee finally crossed the finish line of their season-long marathon and trumped the Rain or Shine Elasto Painters, 92-89, in a classic Game 5 in the Finals of the 2014 PLDT Home Telpad PBA Governors’ Cup to finally stamp their claim in history with a Grand Slam.

The Mixers took home their fourth straight silverware and the third one for the rare and coveted Triple Crown. It is also the second Grand Slam feat for the now 18-time champion coach Tim Cone, who last accomplished the same in 1996 with Alaska.

Finals James Yap, whom Cone himself said he was saving for big games and big moments like a winner-take-all Game 5, could do no wrong on Wednesday night on his way to 29 markers and keeping the Mixers afloat all game long.
