MANILA, Philippines—It might take a few more games but Marcio Lassiter can leapfrog to the top of the list of the PBA’s all-time leader in three-pointers made.

And the San Miguel shooter has an ideal scenario on when he wants that to happen.

“I’m not a good mathematician with numbers like that but it would be great to do it if it’s given to me in the Finals,” said Lassiter after their 101-98 win over Rain or Shine on Friday at Mall of Asia Arena.

“That’d be cool, to capture it in the Finals but I know that’s a long way [to go].”

Currently, Lassiter is fourth on the list of players with the most made three-pointers with 1,216, just two shy of Ginebra guard LA Tenorio’s 1,218.

Lassiter can ideally pull off his dream scenario, considering the Beermen still have a number of games to go before the conference’s end—that’s if they make it to the Finals.

After Friday, Lassiter also moved closer to Allan Caidic and record holder Jimmy Alapag, who have 1,242 and 1,250 triples, respectively.

Though, that scenario isn’t the top priority for Lassiter.

“The way this series is going, it’s going to be a long one. [This game was] very close and neck-and neck the whole game.”

“They’re a young team so we just have to really come out, keep playing our brand and limit their easy shots and our turnovers. I see this series is going to be a long one.”
