Lassiter gets back at TNT 5 years after his first Finals loss

On Sunday, Marcio Lassiter finally exorcised the demons of his first Finals defeat in the PBA.

The sharp-shooter was just a spunky upstart in the league when he emerged as one of the key contributors in Powerade’s Cinderella run back in the 2012 Philippine Cup.

However, that didn’t come with a happy ending as Talk ’N Text beat them in five games to claim the championship.

Lassiter had to watch the Tropang Texters revel and he kept that image in his memory as he hoped one day to be on the other side.

“I always had that on my mind,” said Lassiter.

He finally got his revenge as San Miguel finished TNT in six games for his fifth professional title.

Lassiter went 5-of-13 from three for his best game in the 2017 PBA Commissioner’s Cup Finals in the 115-91 Game 6 closer of TNT.
