San Miguel Beermen managed to pull off a stunning comeback, 110-104, to extend the series, 3-1 in the best-of-7 and now looking to become the first team in PBA history to come back from a 0-3 series deficit.

San Miguel is still playing without the reigning back-to-back PBA MVP June Mar Fajardo, who received the Best Player of the Conference award prior to the game.

Chris Ross was hailed as game's best player, scoring a near triple-double of 11 points, 12 rebounds and 9 assists. Marcio Lassiter scored 26 points, Gabby Espinas had 21 points and 14 rebounds.

Alaska’s Cyrus Baguio forced an extra period after a clutch three-pointer at the buzzer and the Aces again took the upper hand after Vic Manuel opened it with back-to-back baskets, 102-98.

Game 5 of PBA Finals series is set on Wednesday, January 27.
