Magnolia rallies to clip Phoenix, win 3rd in a row

Magnolia turned the tables on Phoenix on Saturday to pull off a 97-91 come-from-behind win in the PBA Philippine Cup at Cuneta Astrodome.

Despite trailing 75-67 at the end of the third quarter, the Hotshots tied the count late in the fourth, 89-all, before closing out the Fuel Masters with an 8-2 run.

Paul Lee led Magnolia's balanced effort with 20 points, but it was Rafi Reavis who powered the Hotshots near the end with a double-double effort of 11 points and 11 rebounds.

The Hotshots now sport a 4-1 record, while the Fuel Masters fell to 2-3.
