Commotion rises in the third frame as Jerome Ortega was whistled with a flagrant foul after gettinng heated with Thomas Torres. Head coaches of both team also engaged in a verbal altercation resulting for a double technical foul.

This however was capitalized by Caloocan as Paul Sanga and John Carlos Escalambre waxed hot in the closing seconds by alternately drilling four triples to erect a 19-point advantage. Tallo then ended the quarter for Bacolod with a left-handed layup making it 51-68.

Paulo Javelona desperately carried his squad but Caloocan's firepower proved to be better all night long.

Pacquiao and Damian Lasco led their team with 14 points apiece, followed by Escalambre with 13.

Javelona had another monster night of 30 points but his counterpart Mark Tallo only had 10 points.

The Supremos are now starting to pile up the wins, clinching their last three for a 4-5 win-loss record while Bacolod lost four of their last five games, also at 4-5.
