Sanctions for the utility personnel of both squads have yet to be determined but they have been instructed to not report for Game 3.
On Friday, January 9, 2015, the San Miguel Beermen levelled the best-of-7 finals series vs the Alaska Aces but not after some intense physical and verbal confrontations between some of the players.

One of the plays even resulted to a bloodied forehead of former MVP Santos. He left the game briefly but returned to help his team even the series at one game apiece.
