PBA Scenes: Petron Blaze Boosters vs Rain or Shine Elasto Painters Semifinals Game 3

Best of the Night. Arwind Santos scored 22 points, grabbed 18 boards, and shot perfect from the line, making sure there's no 2nd half collapse this afternoon. Good way for the reigning MVP to bounce back after a rollercoaster conference. Santos' efforts helped his team take one win from their best of 7 series against the sneaky Rain or Shine Elasto Painters, who still have a 2-1 series edge. Aside from these, Arwind did a little bit more.

Worst of the Night. Yeng Guiao's bald, hot head. Speaking of Arwind Santos doing a little bit more, Petron's star got into the opposing coach's nerves. Standing by the sideline late in the third having a technical foul from the previous quarters, coach Yeng Guiao did a silly choice taunting Santos. That altercation brought him his second technical which basically resulted into an early meeting with the locker room. Knowing Guiao's gut and system, he could have done something in the fourth for them to chop and overtake. The problem was he wasn't even present in their huddles anymore.

Blowout. 106-73. The Blaze Boosters, by the way, won by 33 points. They did, and they just need to.

Compression Shirt Watch. Chris Ross is still wearing that weird, white, oversized compression shirt, but he dropped 8 magnificent points and played solid leadership, so everything's just fine.

Quotation. "This win is a big lift for us. Coming into Game Four, we’ll have more confidence, but we have to manage our emotions. We don’t want to turn it into something outrageous." - Petron headcoach Gee Abanilla.


-Chris Lutz actually contributed good numbers this afternoon, that's a first in this series.

-Alex Cabagnot too.

-The long awaited JuneMar Fajardo vs Rain or Shine big, bully boys fist fight didn't happen yet,

next game maybe.

-Chris Tiu is the worst Chris in Game 3. He had 7 points.

-So it's not a bad night for the Chrises, except for Ross' compression shirt.

Game 4 is on Monday, 8pm.
Tomorrow's game features Barangay Ginebra taking on San Mig Coffee in their own semifinals Game 3.
