Platinum tops 3×3 Leg 5

Platinum Karaoke glittered like gold on Sunday as it brought down Cavitex in a come-from-behind win, 17-15, and ruled Leg 5 of the PBA 3×3 Third Conference Season 2 at Robinsons Place Las Piñas.

Yves Sazon was the man of the hour for Platinum, draining back-to-back deuces to clinch the title and complete the team’s tough journey on the way to the top.

Sazon finished with eight points and four rebounds to lead the charge of coach Anton Altamirano in pocketing the top prize of P100,000.

Terrence Tumalip finished with four points, and Brandon Bates and Nico Salva with three and two points each as Platinum finally won a leg title this conference after a runner-up finish behind Barangay Ginebra in Leg 4 two weeks ago.

The loss was a heartbreaker for Cavitex, which led for the most part and held a 15-13 edge with 60 seconds left to play.

But Dominick Fajardo’s jump shot proved to be the Braves’ final basket of the game as Sazon took matters into his own hands.

The runner-up finish was worth P50,000 for Cavitex, whose bid for a back-to-back title was likewise spoiled.

TNT fought Meralco tooth and nail before pulling through for a 21-20 win in the battle for third place.

The Tropang Giga got seven and six points from Samboy de Leon and Almond Vosotros in claiming the P30,000 prize purse.
