PBA: Lee after winning Clasico:
"We beat the defending champion pero di pa rin kami champion," guard Paul Lee said.

Magnolia finally won Manila Clasico.

The Hotshots took down two-time Brgy. Ginebra in the 2018 PBA Governors' Cup semfinals, completing a 3-1 series win Friday.

While that's great and all, Magnolia has only accomplished half of its goal.

The Hotshots want a championship and they need four more wins. Eliminating the defending two-time champions won't mean much if they don't take the title for themselves.

"We beat the defending champion pero di pa rin kami champion," guard Paul Lee said.

"Kailangan namin talunin pa rin kung sino mananalo sa kabila," he added.

Alaska currently leads Meralco in the other semfinals series, 2-1.

The Hotshots will start the Finals against either of the two teams on December 5 at the MOA Arena.

"Job ain't finished pa rin," Lee said.

"Malaki chance naman pero chance lang yun eh. Hindi ka naman mananalo ng championship ng basta-basta. Laging sinasabi ni kuya Pin [Marc Pingris] na kung gusto niyo manalo ng championship, kunin niyo," he added.
