Alaska Aces are the first and only sports team to surrender a 3-win advantage to an opponent in the history of professional basketball in the world. On the contrary, the San Miguel Beermen is the “first and only” basketball team in the history of professional basketball in the world to overcome a 0-3 deficit and take home the championship.
Following a 96-89 loss to San Miguel Beermen in the final game of Smart Bro PBA Philippine Cup, Alaska punched a world record that many thinks impossible to break – the first and only team to surrender a 3-win advantage in the finals.
It will be hard for both Aces’ players and fans to overcome this nightmare for years to come.
Matt Prolly from Guiness World Record announced the Beermen’s accomplishment after the game on Wednesday night, saying the Beermen is the first and only team in any professional basketball around the world achieve such feat.
While the Beermen are celebrating in months to come, Aces are grieving.
