Alaska. Ginebra. Do-or-die. Yay.
Only one spot remains open for the 2017 Philippine Cup semifinals, either Alaska or Ginebra will take it as the PBA quarterfinals continue Tuesday at the Big Dome.
Following a huge 85-81 win last Sunday, the Gin Kings have erased Alaska's twice-to-beat advantage to set up this knockout game vs. the Aces.
The winner will move on to face the Star Hotshots in the next round.
Down by as much as 17 points in Antipolo City, the Gin Kings once again proved their never say die spirit to steal the victory from Alaska.
Still, the Aces were the no. 2 team in the All-Filipino for a reason so don't expect Alaska to not fight for its playoff life.
The lone Tuesday night game at the Araneta Coliseum is set to tipp off at 7:00 p.m.
