After "Salt Bae" ejection, Marcio dials down on celebrations

"Salt Bae" is taking a break for now but Marcio Lassiter is still keeping his options open for more celebrations, maybe starting as early as Game 4 of the Finals.

After getting ejected in Game 2 for taunting, San Miguel's Marcio Lassiter mostly kept it clean in the Beermen's Game 3 bounce back win.

Yep, no "Salt Bae" this time around for Super Marcio.

"No, there wasn't any. I kept [my hand] low. I had the hand up and I was about to [celebrate], so I had the left hand stopping it for some reason," Lassiter said, following a 17-point performance for the Beermen.

Celebrations aside, the San Miguel gunner is glad the Beermen got their win back to go up 2-1 in a race to four.

But still, he says he and his team should find a way to play even better as they prepare for an expected counter by the Gin Kings.

"I could've done better. I know we made a few mistakes on coverages, so we got to figure those things out," Lassiter said.

"We know it's not going to be easy, so we just got to make adjustments for Game 4 and just see what we did wrong and try to correct them," he added.

Back to "Salt Bae" though, is that thing going to way of Alex Cabagnot's "Arrow" after that costly ejection in Lucena City?

"We'll see what happens in Game 4. There'll be more," Lassiter said.
