Barangay Ginebra San Miguel found its back against the wall after a lopsided defeat to Talk ‘N Text in Game Three of their Commissioner’s Cup semifinals series.
But the Gin Kings showed their spirit in Game Four, staying alive with a thrilling 104-101 victory Friday night.
“We were terrible the last time. We were embarrased in front of more than 23,000 fans,” rookie forward Chris Ellis told InterAKTV in an exclusive interview.
“We took it upon ourselves. We talked about it in the locker room and we figured that we were not only playing for ourselves, but also for our family. The Ginebra family.”
Star point guard LA Tenorio said the beatdown in Game Three served as a wake up call for the squad.
“Good thing rin siguro na nangyari sa amin yun nung Game Three para magising kami. Marami kaming natutunan doon. Mas aggressive kami tonight,” said Tenorio.
Aside from import Vernon Macklin who erupted for 37 points, five locals scored in double figures for Ginebra — Jayjay Helterbrand (17 points), Tenorio (16), Ellis (13), and Kerby Raymundo (12).
“It’s do or die for us, so you expect every player to step up,” said Macklin.
But Tenorio cautioned against being overconfident.
“But we cannot relax dahil ang time lang to relax is kapag bakasyon ka na.”
