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.
