Aces erase 15-point deficit to beat Road Warriors

By Dugout Philippines

Alaska stormed back from 15 points down to turn back NLEX, 90-84, at the resumption of the PBA Philippine Cup at the Smart Araneta Coliseum in Quezon City.

The Aces trailed, 56-41, in the third period as the Road Warriors' substitutes did much of the damage in the period.

But the Aces crawled their way back and tied the game, 67-all early into the fourth quarter.

NLEX reclaimed the lead and stretched it to seven, 81-74, later in the period.

But Alaska unleased the game-deciding 16-3 blast in the last four minutes of the game to complete the comeback.
