For the Istoryans, they knew their depth will spell the difference with an overall 57% shooting percentage from the field. Taking the lead, Gilbeys Cabrera had a Kyle Lowry like pitbull mentality as he had a monster numbers of 42 points,8 rebounds, 8 assists and 5 steals. While another steady night contribution from GK Mercader with 26 points, 7 rebounds, 5 assists and 4 steals kept the game a distance for Istoryans.
