The defending champions led by as much as 20 points in the opening minutes of fourth quarter and appeared to be in total control of the game only to see the Aces come to within just four points.

They will fight the Talk N’ Text Tropang Texters in a best-of-five semifinals series set to begin after the Holy Week. The two teams met in the finals of the 2014 Commissioner’s Cup. The Hotshots, then known as the San Mig Coffee Mixers, won the best-of-five series in four games.

The other semifinal match-up will feature Rain Or Shine Elastopainters opposite the winner of the quarter finals series between sister teams Meralco Bolts and NLEX Road Warriors.

The Bolts are ahead of the series 1-0 and will have the chance to finish off the Road Warriors Sunday night.

  1. If you’re still on the fence: grab your favorite earphones, head down to a Best Buy and ask to plug them into a Zune then an iPod and see which one sounds better to you, and which interface makes you smile more. Then you’ll know which is right for you.
