Purefoods Advance In The Semis Keeping Their Hopes To Reach The PBA Governor's Finals

The Defending Governors Cup Champion Purefoods Star Hotshots, advance in the semi finals after beating the Global Port Batang Pier yesterday in a 101 –  94 win by the Hotshots.

The Hotshots  is the #5 seed while the Global Port is the #4 seed , who they must beat twice in order to advance in the semis and keep their high hopes alive in defending their last title after grabbing the Grand slam champion last year.

The Hotshots beat the Batang Pier, in the first game of Quarter Finals. The first game was clearly dominated by the Hotshots after beating the Batang Pier with 53 points. One of the most blown out Playoff games in PBA history. The Hotshots forced a Game 2, in a do or die game.

In Game 2 , Purefoods start the game hot and looks like another blown out game as they take as much as 21 point lead in the first quarter. But the Batang Pier, came back in the 3rd quarter as they tied the game with a few minutes remaining in the 3rd.

But the Hotshots, did not give any chance to Batang Pier, to bring their momentum in the 4th quarter, as they take charge and regain their lead in a double digit lead and take game 2 to advance in the semis.

Purefoods who was then San Mig Coffee Mixers, is a two time defending Governor’s cup Champion and will have their chance to reach another finals appearance and chance to defend their title? Unless if they will pass the #1 seed Alaska Aces.

The semis  match will feature #1 Alaska Aces Vs Purefoods star Hotshots in a best of five, winner will advance in the PBA Finals. While the series against the Rain or Shine  Elasto painter are still waiting to the winners of San Miguel  Beer and Meralco Bolts.
