ANTIPOLO CITY, Rizal --- Magnolia is not too worried about losing first place to San Miguel.

After suffering an absolute collapse to the Beermen Sunday at the Ynares Center here, the Hotshots will still take their 6-2 record and move on to the next one.

As long as they're in the upper-tier coming into the playoffs, the Hotshots are good to go.

"Okay pa rin naman, nasa magandang posisyon pa rin kami, Mark Barroca said.

"Yung remaining games namin, ayusin lang namin para mas maganda pa yung standing namin. Ano ba naman yung ma-top 4, pareho lang yun sa top 1 di ba, yung makuha naming advantage," he added.

As it stands, Magnolia can only get back at San Miguel in the post-season.

And if this gritty showdown in Antipolo ended up being an early Finals preview, the the Hotshots would like to return the favor to San Miguel and beat them there.

"Hopefully sana," Barroca said about a possible Finals preview.

"Kasi sa playoffs, ganito naman lahat ng laro e kasi iba na pag playoffs diba. Dikdikan na masyado yan so ito ineexpect namin sa playoffs. Parang playoffs na rin talaga ito ngayon," he added.
