Comeback Win

January 11, Wednesday
Smart Araneta

 Petron vs Talk n Text 

Petron leads [2-1] entering -
Game #4 of Best-of-Seven Semis Series

Danny I. Delivers

Ranidel De Ocampo [#33] slams one in.
Ranidel contributes 15.

Jayson Castro converts on three of his six 2-point field goal attempts.
Here, he drives and draws.
Ryan Reyes' 17, Ranidel De Ocampo's 15 and Jayson Castro's 13
add up to 45 points for TnT.

 In the 4-frame sequence below, Go-To-Guy Chris Lutz is challenged
 by Ali Peek but Lutz, with a great mid-air acrobatic move,
protects the ball and manages to squeeze past Peek
 to lay it in [this move illicits oohs and ahs from the banner crowd].
Hayop !!

Lutz chips in 13 for the Petron cause.

 But it is Danny I's 22 big points [he scores 8 in the 3rd and 8 in the 4th]
that helps fuel Petron's 4th Qtr. comeback.

 Larry Fonacier [#12] and Rob Reyes [#24] grapple for possession.

When in doubt  - call for a jumpball.

Rob Reyes [#24] hauls down a game total of 10 boards,
while team mate Alex Cabagnot 
[below - converting on a trey] dishes out 10 assists.

Assist man Alex drills in 8 points in the 4th.

TnT leads by 6 at the end of the 1st half [44-38] and maintains it, going into the 4th [66-60], but the Petron Blaze outscore the Tropang Texters 25 to 16 in the last 12 minutes.

- End Game Drama -

 With 38.6 ticks left, Petron has possession.
Denok Miranda takes a J.  He misses.


Castro gets both his hands on the ball but Arwind Santos 
streches enough to pry the ball loose from Castro's hands.

 Chris Lutz [hidden except for the top of his head in photo below]
hustles his way out of nowhere - -

 to grab the ball

 with Castro trying mightily to snatch it.

 Petron wins the battle for possession.  Tnt fouls. 
Texters still not in penalty so -

The refs call a throw-in for Petron.
The Texters foul Lutz in the ensuing play.


Lutz converts both charities.
Score [85-82] Petron.

With 9 ticks left, TnT is able to launch 2 attempts but both miss.

 The Blaze now lead 3-1 lead and need just 1 more win to wrap it up.

 Danny I - Player of the Game

- Job Well Done -
