PBA: Hotshots go for commanding lead in Manila Clasico

Manila Clasico semis continues Monday at the Big Dome.

Magnolia shoots for a commanding 2-0 lead in the 2018 Governors' Cup semifinals against two-time defending champion Brgy. Ginebra as the series resumes for Game 2.

The Hotshots scored a sensational 106-98 win Saturday at the Ynares Center in Antipolo in the series opener.

The win also allowed Magnolia to snap a 7-game losing skid in Manila Clasico dating back to the 2017 PBA Philippine Cup semifinals.

Ginebra obviously would want to tie the semis as a 0-2 deficit is not exactly ideal in a short best-of-5 series.

Tip off for Game 2 will be at 7:00 p.m. live from the Big Dome.
