"May mga shadow eh. Parang may mga shadow yung mga players kanina eh. Parang yung lima nagiging walo," Arwind said, obviously referring to the officiating.

"Parang ganun eh, kaya nahihirapan kami bantayan kasi lima yung kalaban pero nagiging walo. Ewan ko kung sobrang bilis kaya may shadow?" he added, wondering on the mysteries of life.

Santos was asked to visit the Commissioner's Office Wednesday afternoon and the former Most Valuable Player was given a fine almost immediately.

Game 4 of the series will be played Thursday at the MOA Arena with San Miguel up, 2-1.
