Limitless and TNT will meet in the Big Dance once more to vie for PBA 3×3 Second Conference Leg 5 supremacy, Sunday at SMART Araneta Coliseum.
The rivals forged a rematch of the Leg 3 final, with the Appmasters surely looking to emerge victorious like what they did then to score their leg title no. 3 overall and grow their total earnings to over a million pesos.
But the Tropang Giga are definitely not having any of that, with the crew out to avenge their sorry loss to the reigning grand champs in the Leg 4 semis that foiled their bid of becoming the first repeat champs of the conference.
TNT reached the title bout first after beating Platinum, 21-15, continuing an impressive run that saw them oust the top-seeded Pioneer in the quarters.
Lervin Flores led the Tropang Giga with seven points. Almond Vosotros supplied six, as Chris Javier chimed in with five in a balanced attack.
Chris De Chavez and Ryan Monteclaro, meanwhile, had six points each for Platinum, who reached the semis for the first time in a long while.
Limitless then followed the flagship MVP franchise to the final after making quick work of Purefoods Tender Juicy, 21-9.
Brandon Ganuelas-Rosser led the Appmasters with nine points, as Reymar Caduyac and Jorey Napoles combined for 10 markers.
The Titans and Platinum will still slug it out in the battle for third, which takes place right before the title match.
TNT 21 – Flores 7, Vosotros 6, Javier 5, Gozum 3.
Platinum Karaoke 15 – De Chavez 6, Monteclaro 6, Banal 2, Andrada 1.
