KINGS SURVIVE ‘HACK-A-MACK,’ SHAKY FINISH

Post by Ginebra Tambayan on Sat Mar 23, 2013 12:30 am


Barangay Ginebra built a huge lead early, enough to survive a shaky finish as the Kings repulsed the Meralco Bolts, 84-81, to force a four-way logjam at fifth place in the PBA Commissioner’s Cup at the Smart Araneta Coliseum Friday night.

Vernon Macklin piled up 23 points despite 5-of-15 free throws and added 22 rebounds while Mark Caguioa contributed 21 points before limping out with an injury with two minutes left to play as Ginebra stretched its streak to three games and tied Meralco, Air21 and San Mig Coffee at 4-5.

Ginebra coach Alfrancis Chua said they only had themselves to blame had they dropped the game.

“It’s a scary win and it’s our fault we relaxed on defense. We were up by 21 points then we committed numerous turnovers. Simpleng tira na lang, nilalandi pa,” rued Chua.

“It’s an ugly win and I’m not happy, but we take it,” Chua also said.

Though trailing by as many as 21 at 16-37, the Bolts managed to get back into the game and nearly forced overtime.

However, Chris Ross muffed a game-tying three-pointer at the buzzer, and thus the Kings escaped with their fourth win in six games with Macklin.

Poor foul shooting by Macklin was among those troubling the Kings at the finish.

“They kept on fouling Vernon to send him to the line, but I would not take him out. Ayokong masira ang kumpiyansa niya. Live and die kami sa kanya,” said Chua.

The Bolts resorted to “Hack-a-Mack” that helped them back, coming to within two at 81-83 on a three-pointer by Ross with 25.6 ticks left.

Macklin missed seven of 10 charities in the fourth quarter and 10 of 15 overall.

The Kings looked headed for a breeze with a nine-point lead at 81-72 with two minutes left but the Bolts kept on fighting.

“We planned on how to stop them, especially their point guards and their shooters. Ayos naman but then we relaxed,” said Chua.

Another concern for the Kings after the game was the health status of Caguioa.

He overextended his left foot in one play nearing the last two-minute mark. At the break in play, he went straight to their dugout attended by their team doctor. (SB)
