The tensions rose in game 3 of the PBA Commissioners Cup Finals with players, imports, coaches and team owners getting involved in the drama-filled series as both teams headed to their respective locker rooms during halftime.

Before the half-time buzzer sounded, TnT reserve import Mike Myers and Governors Cup import Michael Craig were already getting involved and caught trash-talking SMB guard Chris Ross. Craig and Myers were escorted out of their red VIP seats across KaTropa’s bench as requested by game officials.

Both imports transferred at the back of the TnT bench and join the team as they were headed to the dugout for the halftime huddle.

As players from both camps headed towards the gates where the pathway was divided, Craig was accused by Beermen staff of pushing the gates which inadvertently hit SMB team manager Robert Non.

“Nothing really happened. Somebody swung the gate open and it happened to hit one of the fans,” Craig narrated.

“I don’t know. I didn’t swing the gate. I don’t know what happened,” said a confused Craig.

“I didn’t get into a verbal nothing. Like I said, I was trying to go to the locker room and somebody swung the game open. I put my hands up.”

On the other hand, Myers was only a few steps away when the incident with Craig and Non happened.

“I don’t know what happened with that. I didn’t push the gate,” said Myers.“I was just walking over and the gate was pushed, I don’t have nothing to do with that.”

PBA Commissioner Chito Narvasa stepped in to try and pacify team officials of both teams. For Myers, he would prefer to prove himself but on the playing court.

“I am really excited right now. I want to play so bad,” said Myers.“I’m very excited but I am just waiting for my time to come and when that comes, I’m ready.”
