Barako comes from behind to take down mixers.

March 26, 2014

The breaks went to Barako.

Barako Bull registered its second victory in the 2014 PBA Commissioner’s Cup with a come-from-behind victory, 92-90, Tuesday night at the Smart Araneta Coliseum.

With 1:28 left and San Mig attaining the upper hand of the game, Barako Bull import Josh Dollard knocked down a triple, giving them a slim lead, 99-88.

After PJ Simon tied the ball game at 90 with 8.8 ticks left, RonjayBuenafe delivered two free throws that sealed the victory for them. Philippine Cup Finals MVP Mark Barroca tried to save the day for the Mixers, but missed an open floater, ending San Mig’s winning streak.

Former league MVP Willie Miller contributed 19 points, while Dollard led the scoring for Barako with 32 points.

San Mig import James Mays led the Mixers with 20 markers, while Joe Devance led the locals with 17 points.

Barako now has a 2-4 record while San Mig is at 3-1.
