PBA: Tenorio, Ginebra dedicate Finals to Batangueños

Easily the biggest national story this week is the eruption of the Taal volcano and the effect it continues to have on our fellow Filipinos particularly in the Batangas area. Ginebra's LA Tenorio, a native of Nasugbu, has expressed his concern for his fellow Batangueños affected by Taal's volcanic activity. "Sa lahat ng mga kababayan ko sa Batangas, mag-ingat tayo, sundin ang sinasabi ng mga officials and make sure na handa tayo sa lahat ng nangyayari," he said. "Make sure na alam natin kung saan tayo pupunta pag may nangyari na sumabog ulit ang bulkan. Ingat lang po. Rest assured na yung dasal namin dito sa Manila, laging nandyan para sa inyo," Tenorio added. LA says that his family is good, especisally those in Nasugbu. "Lahat ng family ko at relatives ko, sa Nasugbu. They're okay. Some of my cousins are doing voluntary work also and yung school dun naging one of the evacuation centers sa Batangas," he said. "I keep in touch with the family. My parents are here since nangyari. They're ok, but my 97-year-old grandfather is there, but he's okay," Tenorio added. With an ongoing PBA Governors' Cup Finals, Ginebra's Game 4 win was dedicated to the people of Batangas. With Ginebra up 3-1 in the series, a possible title is also dedicated to the families affected by Taal. "I told the players na we dedicate this win and hopefully, the championship on Friday for our kababayans in Batangas. Walang ikakasaya ang mga fans natin sa Batangas kung hindi yung championship," Tenorio said. "We're really dedicating this championship for our kababayan, especially mga kababayan ko sa Batangas. Hopefully makuha namin sa Friday to make them smile, by winning the championship," he added.   — Follow this writer on Twitter, @paullintag8.....»»

PBA Finals: We got our game going tonight -- Cone

Barangay Ginebra came out of the locker room after the halftime break on a tear as the Gin Kings caught Meralco flat-footed to take a 2-1 series lead in the 2019 PBA Governors’ Cup Finals on Sunday at the Big Dome. The Gin Kings pounced on the Bolts, who lost big man Raymond Almazan to a knee injury early in the opening period, with a third quarter eruption to carve out a 92-84 victory to get back on the winning track. “For the most part, we were able to get our game going tonight,” said Gin Kings coach Tim Cone, relieved that his squad was quick to bounce back from a sorry loss in Game 2 in Lucena City in Quezon last Friday. Taking advantage of Meralco missing a vital cog in the paint, the Gin Kings blasted 35 points in the third quarter while limiting the Bolts to only 16 for a 78-58 cushion heading into the payoff period. The Gin Kings held a 43-42 lead after the first two quarters. Ginebra was lights out on offense in that period as it hit 14 of its 23 attempts in the field including four triples. The Gin Kings forced Meralco to commit eight turnovers that they converted to 14 points while taking care of their possession as Ginebra cruised in the third without an error. “That's the way we play. We got some stops and got on the open court,” Cone said.  Stanley Pringle anchored the Gin Kings explosion in the third with 17 points off 7-of-9 shooting clip from the field including three treys. He closed his night with 21 points behind Justin Brownlee’s 24 and Japeth Aguilar’s 23 markers. “Stanley had a bunch of spectacular plays that really revved up the crowd,” Cone said. “And I thought just defensively, we did a much better job tonight in terms of controlling some of the guys we wanted to control.”  Ginebra’s third quarter spurt was enough insurance to stave off Meralco’s desparate push late in the fourth canto as LA Tenorio and Japeth Aguilar put the finishing touches to preserve the victory.         --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles.....»»
