Missing one guard in his team’s rotation, Barangay Ginebra coach Tim Cone played LA Tenorio for a personal series-high 40 minutes.Cone’s starting playmaker didn’t mind logging more floor time and, if asked to play the entire game, he said he’d be OK to see more burn.“Actually coach Tim (Cone) is apologizing to me because of the extended minutes,” Tenorio said in an article posted on the PBA website. “I don’t care. This is the championship.”
The PBA Governors’ Cup finals Ahkello Witherspoon Jersey returns to Philippine Arena in Bocaue, Bulacan for Game 6 on Wednesday, with Ginebra looking to finish off Meralco.Holding a 3-2 lead notwithstanding, Ginebra is treating this as a do-or-die game as it should.
The team has already lost backup point guard Sol Mercado to a sprained left ankle he sustained in Game 4 so, given that misfortune can strike any time, it’ll serve Ginebra well to seize the moment.“We don’t have Sol now,” said Tenorio, who finished with 17 points in Game 5 after going scoreless in Game 4, “I’m ready to extend my Ahkello Witherspoon Jersey minutes.” For Meralco, all it wants is to extend the series another game.
The Bolts’ resiliency can’t be questioned, following their effort to tie the series at 2-2 after falling 0-2, despite key players struggling shooting the ball and the absence of Ranidel de Ocampo, who, like Mercado, is out of the series because of an injury.“They came out very aggressive right from the start of the game,” Meralco coach Norman Black said. “
They started out Greg Slaughter so they’re a lot bigger in their lineup and I didn’t think that we reacted very well to it.”How the two teams close the game, though, will be just as important as how they open it.
In this series, the team that outscored its opponent in the fourth quarter has gone on to secure victory.Ginebra outscored Meralco by 9, 15 and 7 points respectively in the fourth quarter of Games 1, 2 and 5, while Meralco was plus-11 and plus-3 in the same period in Games 3 and 4.
In all five games, the winning team also limited the losing squad to below 20 points in the fourth.Meralco enters Wednesday’s game as the underdog. Compounding their size disadvantage is the Bolts’ apparent unfamiliarity with the Philippine Arena.Some on the team has expressed frustration over the officiating, but Black wants to focus on things his players can control.
“We never played here before so it’s new for us but that’s no excuse,” Black said, of the Bulacan stadium that welcomed a PBA finals record 36,445 spectators.“We're professionals and we're assigned to play in this gym so we just got to be our best.”
