MANILA, Philippines – There were a number of highlight plays in Game 2 of the 2017 PBA Philippine Cup Finals on Sunday, February 26, as Barangay Ginebra went on to survive the San Miguel Beermen in overtime, 124-118.
But few could top Japeth Aguilar posterizing his Gilas Pilipinas brother June Mar Fajardo.
Aguilar slammed the ball home over the defense of Fajardo early in the fourth quarter, as Ginebra fought to maintain its hold of the lead after blowing a 26-point advantage.
Aguilar went on to finish with 23 points and 11 rebounds while Fajardo settled for just 10 points and 7 rebounds as he fouled out with still 2:33 left in regulation.
The best-of-7 series is now tied at one game apiece and will continue on Wednesday, March 1. – Rappler.com
