MANILA, Philippines — It took 3 games, but the San Miguel Beermen finally learned their lesson.
San Miguel shoved the Alaska Aces down a double-digit hole in the first quarter and made sure they stayed there as they took Game 4, 88-70, to level the best-of-7 Finals series at 2-2 in the 2015 PBA Philippine Cup on Wednesday, January 14 at the Smart Araneta Coliseum.
The Beermen, who were victims of huge comebacks from the Aces in Games 1 and 3 of the series, took a 17-point 33-16 lead at the end of the first and later notched their biggest edge at 29 points, 55-26, early in the third to keep Alaska down for good the rest of the way.
Alex Cabagnot started for the first time in the series and sizzled for San Miguel with 22 points on 4-of-10 three-pointers.
