HIGHLIGHTS: San Miguel Beer vs Alaska (PBA PH Cup Finals game 1)
MANILA, Philippines – The Alaska Aces climb out of a 22-point hole to steal game one from the San Miguel Beermen, 88-82 on Wednesday, January 7, 2015 at the Araneta Coliseum.
Alaska finished with just 5 points in the opening period - the all-time lowest output for an opening quarter in PBA Finals history, as per PBA statistician Fidel Mangonon III. But they slowly fought back using suffocating defense to deny reigning PBA MVP June Mar Fajardo the ball limiting him to only 6 points the rest of the game after scoring 8 in the opening period.
Calvin Abueva led the way for the Aces with 22 points and 10 rebounds on 12/13 shooting from the foul line.
