PBA 3×3: Platinum unscathed, Limitless aims to repeat heading into Leg 6 QF

Platinum Karaoke will head into the PBA 3×3 Leg 6 quarterfinals unscathed after frustrating CAVITEX, 21-17, Tuesday at the SMART Araneta Coliseum.

Chris De Chavez finished with a game-high eight points. JR Alabanza and Yutien Andrada produced five markers apiece, while Karl Dehesa added three.

The guest team finished 4-0 following another solid showcase of experience.

The veteran-laden crew actually trailed by six, 10-4, barely three minutes into the match. But Dehesa scored on a lay-up off an Alabanza hand-off, which sparked an 8-1 run that finally put them up, 12-11, 6:13 to spare.

It was all Platinum since then as the Braves faltered, with De Chavez and Andrada doing most of the damage. Dehesa went on to deal the killer blow, sinking a deuce from near the top of the still with 4:23 left to play.

Platinum will face Terrafirma in the quarterfinals later today. The Dyip took down the LA Revilla-less NorthPort, 21-14, in the playoff for the last quarters berth.

Meanwhile, Pool A second seed Limitless App will continue its bid of becoming the competitions’ first back-to-back champions.

The Leg 5 rulers are coming in well-rested following the forfeiture of Zamboanga Valientes’ games due to injuries. Standing in their way, however, are perennial contenders Meralco in the quarters.

Meanwhile, other brackets will see TNT take on Pioneer ProTibay; and San Miguel Beer clashing with sister team Barangay Ginebra.
