Magnolia raring to make Finals return
Already in their fourth straight semis appearance, the Hotshots are raring to finally advance to the championship round and challenge three-time defending champion San Miguel Beer for the All-Filipino title.

Now is the perfect time for Magnolia to get over its semis hump.

Up 3-2 in their best-of-7 series against NLEX, the Hotshots go for the kill Tuesday as Game 6 tips off at the Araneta Coliseum.

Already in their fourth straight semis appearance, the Hotshots are raring to finally advance to the championship round and challenge three-time defending champion San Miguel Beer for the All-Filipino title.

Magnolia is set up perfectly as well as NLEX will come in minus guard Kevin Alas, who tore his right ACL early in Game 5.

The Hotshots are dealing with injury as well though with Marc Pingris out due to a torn ACL in his left knee.

For the Road Warriors, they will be tested anew as they hope to extend this series to a deciding Game 7.

Jump ball will be at 7:00 p.m. live from the Big Dome.
