HARD-EARNED GAME 1 WIN FOR SAN MIG COFFEE

San Mig Coffee hardly lacked energy and enthusiasm playing a third game in five nights, outlasting Meralco, 83-73, in a hard-fought, blue-collar battle in Game One of their PBA Governors’ Cup Final Four showdown at the Smart Araneta Coliseum Sunday night.

The Mixers actually came out a little flat but hung on before coming through with a key run in an opportune time, thus, drawing first blood in the best-of-five semis series.

“It was a great defensive battle. They’re undersized but quick and had a good scheme that was very disruptive early in the basketball game,” said San Mig Coffee coach Tim Cone.

“We didn’t do well but we hung around. We battled until we found some open lanes. Our defense created transition baskets in the fourth,” Cone added.

“As expected we had a hard time scoring tonight. But this is a series. Nobody wins a best-of-five series without winning three games,” said Meralco coach Ryan Gregorio.

Marcus Blakely more than held his own against Mario West in a gripping contest, and Joe Devance, Mark Barroca and Marc Pingris worked on a decisive punch at endgame jarring the fierce-fighting Bolts.

Pingris intercepted a Meralco throw-in and parlayed it to a thunderous breakaway jam capping a nine-to-zero tear giving the Mixers a 79-69 lead in the last two minutes of game.

In the next play, Blakely swatted away a layup by West as San Mig settled the outcome of the game, frustrating the Bolts in their first Final Four contest.

Gregorio promised they would come out stronger in Game Two set at 7:15 p.m. Tuesday night in the same venue.

The youthful mentor, however, also said they would need to help their import get points if they’re to get even in the next game.

Blakely outperformed West in the series opener, coming through with 15 points and 10 rebounds as against his rival’s mere nine markers (PBA career low) and 10 boards.

“It’s a great defensive battle. The series isn’t going to be pretty. It’s gonna be a series of attrition,” Cone said.

Blakely and West best typified it.

The Mixers held West scoreless in the fourth period and went to Devance, Barroca and Pingris for the big points at endgame.

Devance top scored for San Mig with 17 points while Barroca and Pingris combined for 15 with seven in the payoff period.

The Bolts took the half at 38-35 and got away with run of their own in the third, giving them their own 10-point spread at 50-40.

The Mixers, however, kept the Bolts from gaining more headway, and spurted ahead at 57-55 at the end of the third. (SB)

The scores:

San Mig Coffee 83 – Devance 17, Blakely 15, Yap 15, Mallari 12, Pingris 8, Barroca 7, Simon 7, Reavis 2, Acuna 0, Najorda 0.

Meralco 73 – Hodge 19, Cortez 12, Wilson 10, West 9, Reyes 6, Cardona 6, Hugnatan 6, Dillinger 2, Salvacion 2, Ross 1.

Quarters: 18-22, 35-38, 57-55, 83-73

  • Mistui

    Nice win for San Mig. Tremendous poise and experience they’ve shown especially in the 3rd period where Meralco took a 10pt lead. Question now is, do they have enough energy left for the rest of the series or will it become 2nd conf. semis again? Its imperative that they finish this series as early as they can so they can get enough rest for the finals.

    • predator

      semis llang pinakamataas na spot ng san mig

      • aryel

        sigurado ka? propeta ka ba, para masabi mo na hanggang semis lang aabutin ng SAN MIG? Baka pwede ka magbigay ng number na tatama sa lotto?

        • Doflamingo

          It’s a shame an informative post from Mistui if followed by a childish post from predator.

  • ColectIvSoWl

      Basa ulit nung comment, unless ikaw rin pala si TANG_INA_MO_GIN_CRABBY_MGA_BAD.

  • Jerome

    As long as san mig hits their outside shots they will be fine

    • sudo maki

      yeah, i think this is one area they should really upgrade. Their ball rotation is very flawless only the players are not that good outside shooters, aside from yap no one else is confident to take the 3 point shot when open, they hesitate and always decides to move closer take the mid range 2 points like barroca, although barroca is really good with his midrange game.

  • Jerome

    Also credt goes to ping on his def on west dali nmn kc i chck ng drves n west prang slow mo

Siguro kung nandyan si Malaksa eh malamang 2 points na naman ang score ni Lame Game James. Mga taga-Pulpol Planet, i-expect nyo na na pag nakuha si Slaughter at healthy na si Malaksa sa All Filipino Cup eh deretso na si “Banlag na takbuhin” papuntang Global Port para makaluwag sa salary cap. Go Big Gay James! Go go go to Global Port! #BanlagNaTakbuhinPa
