My Third Day at the PBA

October 12, Wednesday
Araneta Coliseum

Meralco  vs.  Shopinas
                                                     79                   72

Minutes before game time -
Sel Guevara and Aaron Atayde pose for a snap.

 Gabby Espinas, leading scorer for Meralco with 16,
tries to get past Elmer Espiritu.

 RJ Azul, Nelbert Olomon, and Mark Isip scramble for possesion.

 Borgie Hermida comes to help out Magi Sison 
who is being harassed by Mark Isip.

 Chico Lanete's 6 point output in the 4th helped keep the Clickers at bay.

 As good as money in the bank,
Lanete converts a trey.

Clicker Ogie Menor put in 9 points, but incurred 4 fouls,
in the 29 minutes he played.
Lanete himself got called for 4 infractions.
Chico put in 18 minutes.

It was Asi Taulava's clutch fade away that practically 
won the game for the Bolts. 
 Shopinas' 32.6% field goal clip [29-89]
was a far cry from Meralco's 40.3% [29-72].

B-Meg  vs  Alaska
                                                       81              75

 P.J. Simon tries to ward of [hawi] Sonny Thoss.
Simon was called for an offensive foul on this sequence.

P.J., together with four other LLamados, put in double figures.
Sonny, meanwhile, had three Aces scoring double figures, along with him.
He led Alaska in scoring with 18.

 Coaches Banal and Cone encourage their boys.

 One time MVP James Yap makes his defender eat his dust.
Yap topscored for B-Meg with 20.
In the boards department, Yap and de Vance took down 7 each.

LA Tenorio is greeted by the ferocious B-Meg D.

Joshua Urbiztondo drills in

two consecutive threes [practically from the same spot] 
for good measure, in the 4th Quarter.
Joshua's total point output was 12. 

Despite Urbiztondo's clutch shooting, the Aces managed to stay
within 2 points, [with less than a minute left], but Kerby Raymundo's
drive from the left proved to be the game clincher for B-Meg.
He is seen here during a first half offensive set.

Cone's charges shot better from the field [34-73] for a 47.9 % clip.
Banal's boys managed [30-73], registering 41.1 %.

Tim and LA
A warm post game hug -- Why not ?
