Aces rout E-Painters, take 2-1 semis edge

By Dugout Philippines

Alaska built a double-digit advantage early into its third PBA Philippine Cup semifinal meeting against Rain Or Shine and breezed to a 94-78 win at the Mall of Asia Arena to go up, 2-1, in their best-of-seven series.

The Aces banked on a 13-0 run spanning the first two quarters to open a 26-12 cushion.

The Elasto Painters could only come to within seven points as a late run pulled their opponents away for good.

Both teams will take a two-day break before resuming their series on Christmas Day at the said arena.
