Sunday Thriller

January 8, Sunday
Smart Araneta

Powerade   vs   Rain or Shine
Game #3 of Best-of-Seven Semifinals Series
[Series Tied at One Game Apiece]

-  Matira Ang Matibay -

With time down to 10 ticks in the 4th - Gary David attempts a three.
He is fouled by Paul Lee and is awarded three free throws.

                                             97 - 95                                  97 - 96

- 97 All !! -

Coach Yeng Guiao calls time to set up one last play for Rain or Shine.

- Boo ! -
With barely 2.6 ticks left, Belga is left open for three.
Beau misses a game winner.

Powerade hauls down the rebound and Coach Bo Perasol asks for time.
[Time left - .6 of a second]

With .6 secs Doug Kramer is able to get a shot
off Jervy Cruz but it is just too hurried.
- Ergo - Overtime -

In the extension period, Rain or Shine manages only 2 points courtesy of Gabe Norwood.  Powerade, on the other hand totals seven - 4 from David, 2 from Kramer, and 1 from JV Casio.  Final tally is   [Powerade-104  Rain or Shine-99].

A few more game images here :

- Body Language -

- Foul Bait -
When Paul Lee's this close to the basket,
you simply have to foul him and make sure he doesn't convert.
It's either that or he gets another two points.
[No two ways about it] 

Sean Anthony is called for a blocking foul 
off Gabe Norwood in the 4-frame sequence below.

- Photo Finish -
Jeffrei Chan takes it to the hole.

- And The Winner Is . . . -
In the end the Powerade Tigers get the real Photo Finish - a Win.

 The next 5 images show Gary David on the fastbreak, 
faking Gabe Norwood out of position to get a clean shot - point blank.

- Signed, Sealed, Delivered -
