Chris McCullough willled San Miguel Beer to victory in Game 5 of the 2019 PBA Commissioner’s Cup Finals.

McCullough outscored TNT KaTropa by himself in the final 12 minutes, 19-14, and San Miguel Beer completed a comeback from 16 points down to take a crucial 3-2 lead in the best-of-7 series for the title.

The man was simply on a mission and he wants this title bad.

“We’re going to win this s***,” McCullough said repeatedly after they pulled through in Game 5.

The young San Miguel import finished the win with 35 points and 22 rebounds.

His clutch basket inside the last 30 seconds over Terrence Jones finally pushed the Beermen ahead, 95-94.

“I don’t remember it to be honest,” McCullough said of his go-ahead layup.

“But coach drew a play and I got a bucket. You do those things in practice and we got the win,” he added.

One win away from the title, McCullough is determined to win it all Friday in Game 6.

“We'll come ready to play and mentally locked in to get this win, and not let it go to Game 7,” he said.
