PBA: Terrence Jones new tropa wants to send him back to the NBA

Over the last couple of seasons, the PBA has seen its share of super imports. Ginebra’s Justin Brownlee immediately comes to mind. Meralco’s Allen Durham and Phoenix’s Eugene Phelps fit in that mold too. Alaska’s Mike Harris is in that list as well. The uber-talented Glen Rice Jr. could have made it if he just got it together. But for the 2019 PBA Commissioner’s Cup, TNT brought not just any other import. Tired of underperforming for the past few conferences, the KaTropa went ahead and signed former Houston Rockets forward Terrence Jones for the mid-season joust. With Jones, TNT went the super — SUPER — import route and it has been worth every penny for the KaTropa, at least so far.   ROCKET MAN Many former NBA players have played in the PBA before, that’s not a new thing. But what makes Jones special is that he’s at his peak of his powers now as he plays his first stint in the PBA. Jones is a former first-round pick and was a legitimate NBA contributor. In his best NBA season, in 2013-2014 for Houston, Jones started 71 games and had career-high numbers of 12.1 points and 6.9 rebounds per game. This dude is legit. “Oo iba, iba siya talaga,” guard RR Pogoy said of Jones. (Yes, he’s really different). In just one conference, Pogoy and Jones have clicked as teammates. Terrence has admitted that RR is one of his favorite local targets when he’s trying to spot an open teammate when opposing teams double on him. Pogoy admits that Jones is one of the best, if not the best, import he’s ever played with. “Pwedeng-pwede pa siya talaga sa NBA eh. Iba yung skills niya,” he added. (He could still play in the NBA. His skills are just different).   THE DIFFERENCE TNT has ran pretty much the same system for years. Whether you like this team or now, they know what style they want to play andd they identify players that fit that system well. The KaTropa have dominated the PBA without a traditional big man. Ask other teams, they’ve been blindsided and bamboozled by a TNT offense led by diminutive point guards like Jimmy Alapag and Jayson Castro. However, the KaTropa have hit another rough patch. The team hasn’t made it to the PBA semifinals since 2017. Their 2018 campaign was a lot like the horror 2016 year with the only difference being three seasons ago, they actually made it to the semifinals of the Governors’ Cup as a no. 1 seed. Last year, they won zero playoff games and missed the playoffs altogether once so in essence, 2018 was a worse nightmare for the KaTropa. It didn’t help that in the previous All-Filipino, they were practically a missed 24-second violation away from ending the San Miguel Beer Philippine Cup dynasty. The winning formula no longer works for TNT. Or at the very least, it’s not as effective. Enter Terrence Jones. “Malaking tulong talaga siya sa team namin. Kung ano yung kulang samin, parang fit na fit talaga siya eh. Napa-dali na lang yung mga buhay namin sa basketball,” Pogoy said of Jones. (He’s a big help to our team. What we lack, he fits right in. Our basketball lives are easier with him). “Yung rebounding tsaka yung pagka-shot blocker niya [malaking tulong]. Naiilang din yun kalaban namin eh, sa rebound naman naco-control namin kasi may malaki na kami, yun naman talaga kulang namin,” Pogoy added. (His rebounding and his presence as a shot blocker is a huge help). In 10 games so far, Jones is averaging 14.9 rebounds per game. That may not seem much for an import but he’s never had fewer than 10 in a game and has hit a high 22 rebounds. His shot blocking has helped TNT shore up its overall defense as well with Jones averaging 2.9 rejections a game with his three best performances coming against Columbian (7 blocks), Ginebra (6 blocks), and San Miguel (5 blocks). The last two teams feature perhaps the two best frontlines in the league today by a wide margin. Aside from his defensive presences, Jones is a force on offense as well, averaging 34.5 points on close to 50 percent shooting. He’s hit over 30 points eight times and over 40 points four times. Scoring will be a given for a player of his caliber but what sets him apart is his ability to locate open teammates and willingly pass the ball to them. Jones is good for at least four assists in every game and he’s topped out at 16 dimes so far. In 10 games, he’s rounding up to 7.7 assists per outing which leads all imports, and the whole league actually. “Talagang willing passer siya, hinahanap din niya talaga yung mga kasama niya. Kumbaga di niya inaako lahat yung scoring load,” forward Troy Rosario said of his new frontcourt tandem in Jones. (He’s a willing passer. He really tries to find his teammates and he’s not trying to shoulder all the scoring load). “Kami ready pa rin kami lagi. Syempre yung experience niya sa NBA talagang pinapakita niya dito, natutulungan din niya kami kung saan kami dapat lumugar sa plays kasi advanced na siya eh, kahit di na sabihin ni coach alam na niya dapat gawin,” he added. (We’re just ready as locals. He’s really showing his NBA experience here, he’s helping us to where we need to be on plays because he’s so advanced he knows what to do even before coach tells us).   THE LEADER Aside from putting up big numbers across the board, there’s one underrated factor about Terrence Jones that has led to him making a positive impact on TNT. Jones made an effort to be a leader for the KaTropa and his teammates have rallied behind him for sure. The result is in the way they play and the way they win in the Commissioner’s Cup. “I think it’s come to them [TNT locals] listening and understanding that I have a little experience on what it takes to try to win and be a good teammate,” Jones said of his leadership role with the KaTropa and how it worked out. “They listened and understood that and we’ve been having fun ever since,” he added. TNT is full of alpha-level players but Jones’ NBA resume has certainly helped in making them line up behin their import and provide support. The the KaTropa have been running like a well-oiled machince with that set up. “Leadership pa lang niya ang laking tulong na samin. As locals, ginagawa lang namin kung ano dapat namin gawin para maka-contribute din and para matulungan din siya,” Rosario said. (His leadership alone is a big help for us. As locals, we just try to do what we need to do to contribute and to help him out). “Magaling siya, isa talaga siya mga leader namin ngayon. Talagang nili-lift up niya kami, di lang sa salita pati sa gawa,” Pogoy added. (He’s great, he’s one of our leaders now. He really lifts us up not just with words but with action as well)   THE LONG ROAD BACK TO THE ASSOCIATION It would be incredible if TNT ends up having Terrence Jones as a resident import the same way Ginebra has Justin Brownlee or Phoenix has Eugene Phelps or Meralco having Allen Durham. However, the KaTropa know that their super import still has a good shot of returning to the NBA and they plan on helping him get back there. “Syempre goal namin makapasok sa playoffs, nagawa na namin yun. Ang susunod na step is next round sa playoffs. Malaking tulong din yun sa kanya kasi yung pangalan niya bumabango ulit,” Rosario said. (Our goal is to make the playoffs and we did that. Now the next step is to get to the next round of the playoffs. That’s a big help for him to get his name out there again). “Preparation na rin kasi alam namin na after dito, meron siyang invites sa mga training camps,” he added. (It’s also good preparation because we know after this, he has some invites to camps). With TNT at 9-1 and a top-2 seed in the playoffs, the team is certainly favored to win in the Commissioner’s Cup. And perhaps one of Jones’ best ways to once again get some traction is to put up great numbers for a championship team in a big league like the PBA. There’s a big check mark on the numbers part and while he can’t win a title by his lonesome, Jones has an entire tropa that has his back. “Lalo na kung mag-champion kami, mabango yung pangalan niya di ba?” Pogoy said. (If we win the championship, that’s good for his name, right?). “Marami naman nags-scout diyan, nakikita siya and maganda pinapakita niya. Feel ko [kaya bumalik sa NBA],” he added. (There’s people that scout him, seeing him and how good he’s been performing. I feel [he can make it back to the NBA]). Of course, winning a PBA championship does not directly award Jones and NBA roster spot. However, he appreciates that his team backs him up in that regard. Right now TNT’s super import is just concerned about playing well with his team and winning more games. “I appreciate it, I wish nothing but the best for all my teammates as well,” Jones said. “I hope you guys see that while we’re playing, we’re smiling and enjoying one another when anybody scores. It’s just like a family atmosphere,” he added.   — Follow this writer on Twitter, @paullintag8.....»»

PBA: Arwind after 36-point loss to Magnolia: “Wag lang Game 7”

Things have been a little rough for the Beermen in the 2019 PBA Commissioner’s Cup. Following a 36-point beating at the hands of Magnolia Wednesday, San Miguel Beer has suffered its second 30-point loss in the mid-season joust. The Beermen also dropped to 2-4 in the team standings, complicating their playoff hopes by just a little bit. Still, San Miguel refuses to press the panic button. Arwind Santos certainly won’t dwell on this loss too much. “Kasi ako yung tao na yung mga negative, ginagawa ko kaagad sa positive,” he said. “Kasi given yan na hindi lahat ng matatanggap mo sa buhay is positive or pumapabor sayo,” Santos added. Facing off against Magnolia, the Hotshots had extra motivation to win as its the first meeting between the two teams since Game 7 of the Philippine Cup Finals. Santos says Magnolia can have this 36-point win and they’ll keep their nice trophy after capturing Game 7 of the Finals. “Nagkataon na natambakan kami ng [36] points, iniisip na lang namin na parang okay, mas pipiliin namin matambakan kami ng 50 points kaysa matalo kami ng Game 7,” Arwind said. “Mga ganitong talo, masakit talaga, masakit tignan. Kami iniisip na lang na ganoon at least hindi pa naman huli yung lahat, mayroon pa namang chance. Mas pipiliin namin na matambakan kami ng 50 points basta wag lang kaming matalo ng Game 7,” Santos added.   — Follow this writer on Twitter, @paullintag8.....»»

UAAP Season 81: Sobra sa ini-expect – Miguel on NU’s campaign

National University head coach Norman Miguel gave a good assessment of his team as the Lady Bulldogs overachieved in a very challenging season for the rookie-laden squad. The mentor lauded his squad’s resiliency and gallant stand in UAAP Season 81 women’ volleyball tournament despite the adversities NU faced throughout the tournament. “Para sa amin malaking achievement na ang four wins,” said Miguel after NU finished the season with a 4-10 win-loss record.  “Para sa akin sobra ito sa ini-expect,” added Miguel, whose squad closed their campaign with a 25-27, 17-25, 25-20, 16-25, loss to semifinals-bound University of Sto. Tomas. Coming into the season, the Lady Bulldogs, who saw the exit of Jaja Santiago and Aiko Urdas, made a coaching change just two months before the start of the tournament as NU parted ways with Babes Castillo last December and was replaced by Miguel. The Lady Bulldogs also lost their veteran core with Jasmine Nabor, Jorelle Singh and Roma Doromal skipping the season for personal reasons while middle Risa Sato was deemed ineligible to play because of academic deficiencies.       It left Miguel with only a handful of players led by veterans Joni Chavez, Audrey Paran and graduating Roselyn Doria and rookies Princess Robles, Ivy Lacsina, libero Jennifer Nierva and setter Joyme Cagande. Fate played a cruel joke on the Lady Bulldogs as Cagande sustained a season-ending knee injury in NU’s debut game against Far Eastern University.      “Bago pa lang mag-start ‘yung season alam naman namin composition ng team na puro rookies and then Risa Sato wasn’t able to play then Joyme got injured,” said Miguel. “Maski di pa nangyayari injury ni Joyme, nag-uusap kami ng coaching staff na di kami nagi-expect na we will be in the Final Four,” he added. “Actually, to be honest, iniisip namin nina coach Reg (Diego), wag lang kaming winless in two rounds. Yun lang ang para sa amin basta ito muna ang mangyari, basta di mangyari na 0-0 sa two rounds because of the composition of the team compared sa other teams na competitive sila sa lineup nila.” After losing their opening game and Cagande out for the season, NU converted Chavez from libero to setter and tasted victory at the expense of University of the East.    “And it happened. Nu’ng nagkaron na kami ng first win sobrang tumaas yung momentum na kaya pala ma-increase namin yung ano nu’ng game namin and baka madagdagan ang wins namin,” said Miguel. The Lady Bulldogs then tripped University of the Philippines for a two-win first round run. NU had a string of misfortunes to open the second round before scoring a win over its first round tormentor Adamson. Then came the biggest win of the Lady Bulldogs when NU showed UP the exit door in the race for the Final Four that completed the young team’s domination of the Lady Maroons, who coming into the season were one of the title contenders following their pair of offseason championships. “Alam mo sa totoo lang itong team namin, we all have the reasons para gumive up. Unang una panglimang coach na nila ako, panglima o pang-apat? O whatever. Tapos may na-injure, ineligible to play, merong mga injuries during training pa, during the game. Ang dami tapos from 11 naging 10 naging 9. Di ba ang daming reason para gumive up? Pero hindi,” he said. “Eto kami nagsama-sama, nag-stay put.” “Those are the things that we have to be thankful for na marami kaming natutunan sa journey na ito,” Miguel said.   --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles  .....»»

PVL: Lady Chiefs, Lady Altas collect debut wins

NCAA Finals protagonists Arellano University and University of Perpetual Help score contrasting victories to open their respective campaigns in the Premier Volleyball League Season 3 Collegiate Conference at the FilOil Flying V Centre in San Juan. The reigning NCAA champion Lady Chiefs needed only 69 minutes to tame Technological Institute of the Philippines, 25-12, 25-7, 25-13, in Group B to join other opening day winners University of Sto. Tomas and College of St. Benilde. Arellano U cruised right from the opening serve as head coach Obet Javier emptied his bench and tried different rotations. “Sinabi ko lang naman sa team ko na every time magkakaroon ka ng opportunity na maglaro lalo na sa venue na to, dapat yan, kumbaga i-grab mo kasi maraming gusto maglaro dito e,” he said. “So, kahit na sabihin na natin na nanalo tayo noong first set, lagi kong nire-remind na mas gandahan pa lalo yung performance para kumbaga yung confidence ng team ko, umangat pa.” NCAA reigning Most Valuable Player Necole Ebuen and NCAA Collegiate Press Corps Volleyball Player of the Year Regine Arocha scored 10 points each for the Lady Chiefs. Arocha, the NCAA Season 94 Finals MVP, added 13 digs and four excellent receptions. No Lady Engineers player scored in double figures with Khem Consencino scoring only five points to lead TIP. Meanwhile, the Lady Altas needed to regroup after a third set meltdown to beat San Sebastian College, 25-14, 25-22, 22-25, 25-17, in Group A to join Ateneo de Manila University and Adamson University at the top of the standings. Charina Scott paced the Las Pinas-based squad with 13 points while Jhona Rosal got 11 markers. The duo combined for 20 of the Lady Altas’ 40 kills. “Yung third set medyo nag-relax, naging complacent na doon sa ginagawa nila. Akala nila panalo na agad may moment kasi na pag tinitingnan ko yung mga players parang easy-easy lang which is hindi naman dapat,” said Perpetual head coach Macky Carino. “Buti na lang pagdating ng fourth set nag-iba na talaga. Gusto na talaga manalo.” Bianca Ordona and Reyann Canete finished with 14 and 11 points, respectively, for the Lady Stags.   --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles   .....»»

PVL: Angels take first win, add woes to Water Defenders

PetroGazz rebounded from an opening day loss with a mighty bounce back win over winless BaliPure, 25-22, 25-18, 25-16, on Sunday in the Premier Volleyball League Season 3 Open Conference at the FilOil Flying V Centre in San Juan. Jeanette Panaga and Paneng Mercado led the Reinforced Conference champions’ charge to barge in the win column after absorbing a four-set loss to BanKo last week. The multi-awarded middle blocker Panaga got 16 points coming off 12 attacks, three kill blocks and an ace for the Angels, who outgunned the Water Defenders, 42-24. Mercado had nine markers while Jonah Sabete and Jovielyn Prado combined for 13 points for PetroGazz. Libero Cienne Cruz had 19 digs and 10 excellent receptions for the Angels.        “Siguro mindset lang talaga na well, start na talaga, start na yung tournament. Last time talaga pagdating sa mindset off talaga, makikita mo na di totally naka-focus sa ginagawa last time kaya ganoon kadami nabigay na errors,” said Angels coach Arnold Laniog. “But this time nagi-error pero mga errors na for me is acceptable.” PetroGazz committed 22 errors, eight miscues lesser than in its first outing.   “From last game kasi ang daming error na unacceptable lalo na yung mga simple talaga. Sana magtulu’y-tuloy,” added Laniog.     PetroGazz got a scare early in the third set after trailing, 6-8, before blasting a 14-3 scoring barrage to turn the tables around and blow the game wide open, 20-11. The Water Defenders dropped their second straight match and 12th overall since a winless campaign in the import-laden conference. Grazielle Bombita had 11 points off eight spikes, two kill blocks and an ace for BaliPure while Shirley Salamagos got seven markers.   --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles  .....»»

Petron, Foton secure semis slots

Defending champion Petron breezed past Marinerang Pilipina, 25-18, 25-13, 25-11, to make its way to the semifinals of the Philippine Super Liga All-Filipino Conference on Thursday at the Filoil Flying V Centre. Aiza Maizo-Pontillas finally caught fire for the Blaze Spikers, who stretched their winning streak to 12. Maizo delivered 15 points on top of 12 digs while Bernadeth Pons and skipper Frances Molina combined for 24 markers for Petron, which need only one hour and 25 minutes to wrap up the contest. The Blaze Spikers will clash with the survivor in the other quarterfinal battle between Generika-Ayala and Cignal, who will clash on Saturday. "Siyempre sobrang laki kasi lahat naman ng teams ito yung goal makarating sa ganitong status,” said Petron head coach Shaq Delos Santos. “Ngayon nandito na kami kailangan mas maging eager pa kami na pagandahin yung takbo ng team namin kasi siyempre pinaghirapan naman namin," he added. Meanwhile, Foton recovered from a set down to boot out PLDT Home Fibr, 16-25, 25-17, 25-17, 25-12, in the other quarters pairing. Jaja Santiago dropped 20 points off 14 spikes, five kill blocks and an ace while Dindin Santiago-Manabat and Marian Buitre added 15 and 12 markers, respectively, for the Tornadoes, who will take on the winner between no. 2 seed F2 Logistics and Sta. Lucia Realty in the Final Four. The Power Hitters, who played sans Aiko Urdas because of a knee injury, got 22 points from Grethcel Soltones while Jerrili Malabanan and Shola Alvarez got 13 and 10, respectively. The Blaze Spikers had the game in full control that allowed Delos Santos to field in seldom-used players, including Mary Anne Esguerra, Mela Tunay and Toni Basas. Dimdim Pacres and Judith Abil finished with seven points apiece for Marinerang Pilipina, which ended its campaign without a single win to show.    .....»»

PBA Finals: No apology from Arwind after monkey gesture aimed at Jones

For the most part, Game 5 of the 2019 PBA Commissioner’s Cup Finals between TNT and San Miguel Beer went normal. No shenanigans or anything like that. No more physical mind games. And then there’s Arwind. Santos was caught on camera doing a monkey gesture late in the first half after TNT’s Best Import Terrence Jones was called for a foul, resulting in a change in possession. Without a shadow of a doubt, that counts as racism especially on the part of Jones, who is African-American. Unfortunately and quite disappointingly, Arwind doesn’t see it that way. In fact, he’s unapologetic about it. “Sorry ako? Hindi. Depende yun sa kanya. Kung mapipikon siya, totoong monkey siya. Kung di ka mapipikon, di ka monkey. Kami nanga-asar lang. Kami nga magka-kapatid naga-asaran din kami. Di ko naman siya kaano-ano,” Santos said. “Gusto lang namin manalo. Kung mapikon siya, hindi ko na kasalanan yun,” Arwind added. Jones didn’t see the gesture and so it was a non-issue. However, fans have started to call out Arwind on social media, even San Miguel supporters. It’s 2019, those things have no place in this world, especially a Finals that has been beautifully-played by both teams. Looks like Arwind didn’t get the memo. “Dati naman di ba, pwede mo isigaw yan. Kami nung nasa Air 21 pa ako, time nila Dorian [Pena] tinatawag din namin na ganun, gorilla,” he said. “Pero wala yun pang-asar lang yun, sinusubukan mo lang mang-asar. Kasi magaling eh,” Santos added. After the gesture, Arwind did admit that he got a warning from PBA Commissioner Willie Marcial and from his own coaches, after all, he did the gesture while on the bench. “Sinabi ko nga di ba, mind games yun, Pero sinabihan naman ako kanina, kaya di ko na ginawa yun. Dati ginagawa ko yan, wala naman warning so okay lang. Kanina na-warning ako ni Commissioner tsaka ng mga coaches ko, kaya di ko na ginawa,” Santos said. “Basketball, mind games di ba? Malay mo makita niya at mapikon siya pag tinatawag siya na ganun. Eh pabor samin. Na-warning naman kami, sinabihan kami. Nakaka-intindi naman kami,” he added.   — Follow this writer on Twitter, @paullintag8.....»»

Tornadoes take no. 3 seed, Cargo Movers end skid

MALOLOS  CITY -- Foton made a short work of winless Marinerang Pilipina, 25-15, 29-27, 25-14, to end the preliminary round on a high note in the Philippine Superliga All-Filipino Conference Tuesday at the Malolos Sports and Convention Center here. The Tornadoes finally arrested a three-game skid with sisters Jaja Santiago and Dindin Santiago-Manabat delivering 16 points apiece to send the Lady Skippers into a winless campaign in the 14-game preliminaries. Manabat tallied 13 kills, two aces and a block laced with 11 digs, while Santiago nailed 14 kills and a pair of blocks. Wing spiker Mina Aganon and Elaine Kasilag were also instrumental with nine and eight points, respectively, as well as setter Gyselle Sy, who had 20 excellent sets on top of five markers. Eya Laure, who replaced injured Maika Ortiz, also made her PSL debut for Foton, but only played late in the second and third set finishing with two markers as she was obviously still adjusting to the team’s system. Foton finished the elimination round with an 8-6 win-loss record with idle Generika-Ayala, but the Tornadoes won the quotient with 25 points, two markers ahead of the Lifesavers. The Tornadoes secured the No. 3 spot in the knockout quarterfinals and will face No.6 PLDT on Thursday at the Filoil Flying V Centre in San Juan City. Nobody scored in double figures for Marinerang Pilipina with Dimdim Pacres and Judith Abil leading the way with nine and eight markers, respectively, as they head into a titanic battle with No.1 Petron (13-1) in the knockout quarterfinals. Meanwhile, F2 Logistics snapped a two-game skid with a dominating 25-18, 25-14, 25-22, victory over Cignal to close the prelims with a 12-2 slate at no. 2 spot. Fil-American Kalei Mau registered 20 points off 16 attacks, two aces and two kill blocks while Majoy Baron and Ara Galang got 14 and 10 markers, respectively, for the Cargo Movers, who will face Sta.

Foton activates Laure, replaces injured Ortiz

Foton has activated Eya Laure as replacement for injured Maika Ortiz in the 2019 Philippine Superliga All-Filipino Conference. The University of Sto. Tomas hotshot will debut on Tuesday against Marinerang Pilipina at the close of the preliminary round at the Malolos Sports and Convention Center. Laure, the UAAP Season 81 rookie of the year and 1st Best Outside Spiker, got the nod from the league on Sunday after the Tornadoes requested for a replacement following Ortiz's ACL injury. Per competition regulation, a team can replace up to two local players during the competition with the players listed in the O-2 form. Laure, whose older sister EJ is also part of Foton although currently in the reserve list, is expected to add more depth to the Tornadoes' offense as she joins the towering sisters 6-foot-5 Jaja Santiago and 6-foot-2 Dindin Santiago-Manabat. Laure, who was in the reserve list at the start of the conference because of an ankle injury she sustained in the UAAP Finals against eventual champion Ateneo De Manila University, is a versatile and athletic player who can operate on both wings with solid floor defense. Her presence will give Foton the boost it needs as the Tornadoes prepare for the knockout quarterfinals. Foton holds a 7-6 card tied with Cignal......»»

PBA Finals: Arwind on Jones incident: “Sigawan lang, amoy burger”

Game 4 of the TNT-SMB series was tame compared to the standards set so far in 2019 PBA Commissioner’s Cup Finals. There was still some drama still and if you’re guessing Terrence Jones vs. a member of the Beermen then you are so right on the money. During a dead ball, Jones approached Arwind Santos and gave him a nice scream to the face. Arwind flinched but made sure to give somewhat of an answer to the TNT import. Jones smiled as he turned away. Both were give technical fouls for their respective shenanigans. “Ayun, nag-sigawan lang. Pina-amoy lang niya yung hininga niya sa akin,” Arwind said of the whole incident with Jones. “Amoy Amerikano, amoy burger. Sanay na ako doon. Ganun talaga kapag minsan nagkaka-initan. Gulatan lang naman king sino ang masisindak. Part lang ng game yun eh. Kaya lang mas malakas siyang bumuga kaysa sa akin, in fairness,” he added. Santos and the Beermen certainly didn’t back down from Jones and TNT especially in Game 4. San Miguel had tied the PBA Finals at two games each with a crucial 106-101 victory and that’s the more important thing, even if Arwind feels that the Beermen still have no momentum just yet. The focus now is to not back down until this series is done and won. “Hindi ko pa nafe-feel yung momentum namin kasi sobrang di mo masasabi eh. Kahit sabihin mong lamang ka ng six points with one minute to go or 30 seconds, ang Talk ’N Text kayang makabalik,” Santos said. “Kaya kailangan talaga wag kang kukurap hanggang matapos hanggang may oras,” he added.   — Follow this writer on Twitter, @paullintag8.....»»
