PBA: Party time for Magnolia as Hotshots celebrate new title
Magnolia beat Alaska in six games to win the 2018 PBA Governors' Cup. It was the team's first championship in four years or since the 2014 Grand Slam season.

It's officially party time for Magnolia.

The Hotshots celebrated with their fans Friday at the San Miguel headquarters in Ortigas, two days after scoring their 14th title in franchise history.

Magnolia beat Alaska in six games to win the 2018 PBA Governors' Cup. It was the team's first championship in four years or since the 2014 Grand Slam season.

Present in the victory party are all members of the team led by Finals MVP Mark Barroca, Best Player of the Conference, and import Romeo Travis.

"Thank you sa mga fans namin na pumunta dito, sana ngayon mag-enjoy lang tayo. Merry Christmas sa inyo and God bless," Barroca said.

"Nagpapasalamat ako sa mga boss namin and sa lahat ng fans sa walang sawang suporta, sana hindi ito yung last natin, sana madagdagan pa," Paul Lee added.

Lee won his first championship with Magnolia after arriving to the team two years ago via a blockbuster trade for James Yap.

Romeo Travis, who also won his first PBA title, had a very short and sweet message.

"Maligayang Pasko!" the import said.

Magnolia's win allowed the Purefoods franchise to tie Alaska for second-most titles in PBA history with 14 each.

San Miguel remains number one with 25 championships.
