Fastbreak: Alaska ousts Tim Cone, San Mig
2013 PBA Commissioner's Cup Semifinals
Alaska Aces (83) - (78) San Mig Coffee Mixers
The Best: So many improbable things happened in this game -- from Rob Dozier scoring just 6 points, the Aces roaring back from a double-digit deficit, and Calvin Abueva scoring all but two of his points in the fourth period. Such a well-earned series win by the Aces.
The Worst: James Yap and Marc Pingris, easily the two most popular SMC Mixers, were both non-existent here. Yap missed the game entirely, while Ping was limited to a paltry 5-point output. The result? Bye bye title defense.
Irony: Tim Cone left Alaska when the Aces were struggling. He signed up with SMC and led them to last season's Commish Cup title. He swept the Aces in the elims of the current Commish Cup. And then he gets beaten in four games by his former apprentice with a number of the same players he left behind. In the process, Cone's new team was dethroned by his old team. Fate, you're pretty funny. - Rappler.com
