San Miguel sends Alaska to 6th straight loss
Alex Cabagnot led five San Miguel players in double-figures and the Beermen dominated the Alaska Aces, 109-97, in the 2017 PBA Commissioner’s Cup Saturday night at Ynares Center in Antipolo.
Cabagnot, the veteran point guard, fired a game-high 25 points and had 10 rebounds, six assists and three steals while import Charles Rhodes also notched a double-double with 24 points and 10 rebounds.
The Beermen bounced back from a 107-99 loss to the Barangay Ginebra Gin Kings on Sunday and they did it with a strong third quarter, outscoring the Aces, 31-18.
Marcio Lassiter and Chris Ross added 19 and 18 points, respectively, while Arwind Santos nearly posted a double-double with 10 points and eight rebounds for San Miguel, which tied Ginebra in second place with a 7-2 card.
The Aces, who missed the services of Calvin Abueva and JVee Casio, have now lost six consecutive games after going 4-0 to start the conference.
