With the huge performance of JP erram, the Blackwater elite was able to cause an upset to the Grand Slam team Star hotshots as they showed a tough Blackwater elite squad by giving the opponent team a hard time to even have a large lead. The see-saw battle was showcased in this game today. With 3 minutes left in the clock the Elites lead by as much as 5 points and was able to protect the lead with outstanding defensive stops.
James Yap, somehow tried to salvage the win for the hotshots as he buried a couple of treys and mid-range shots with the help of Maliksi who buried a trey with 1:05 remaining on the clock which leads to a deadlock, 93 a piece and also gave them the lead at 98-97 with 14.9 seconds left on the clock. But the Blackwater import gave them back the lead by scoring at the post then got fouled and split his charities on the line which rewarded them with 2pt lead to end the 4th quarter.
