The Hotshots gain a 3-2 lead over Alaska in the best-of-seven finals affair
The Best Import of the Conference hit a game-winner with 1.3 seconds left as Magnolia moved on the cusp of bagging the 2018 PBA Governors' Cup title with a 79-78 win over Alaska in Game 5 on Friday, December 14.
With the Hotshots trailing 77-78 late, the capacity crowd at the Araneta Coliseum broke loose after Lee drained an open baseline jumper off a Romeo Travis miss to give his side the upper hand.
Lee shot 3-of-11 from the field prior to his game-winner but that didn't matter as he collared the offensive board and stopped from within 15 feet to sink the go-ahead jumper.
Game 6 is slated on Wednesday, December 19, at the Ynares Center in Antipolo City.
