WHILE he struck the dagger at the heart of Meralco with two crucial three-point shots in the final minute, Chris Ellis credited new Barangay Ginebra import Josh Powell for being the steady defensive force against the Bolts.

The 6-foot-4 Ellis erupted for 14 of his 16 points in the final period, but the high-leaping forward said he couldn’t have done that without Powell, who made sure the Gin Kings got the stops on the defensive end, which gave him the chance to run the open floor.

The high-flying sophomore said the former Los Angeles Laker was a steadying presence on the court and a good influence inside the locker room.

“Josh Powell is very soft-spoken, but he’s all business," said Ellis after the 88-78 win over Meralco. "He just brings more focus, seriousness and urgency to the team because nobody’s joking around in the locker room. Everybody’s just talking about the game, everybody’s aggressive mentally.”

Ellis said the former Los Angeles Laker Powell’s vast NBA experience was something that rubbed off on every Gin King from the opening tip off.

“You could just feel his experience on the court.  Once you get the big men talking and the guards communicating with the big men, that starts something,” noted 'Air Force Ellis.'

The 25-year-old Ellis said he’s just happy to finally see his team execute well on offense, something the team failed to do during its first six games with Leon Rodgers.

“We’ve been practicing like crazy moving the ball, getting assists, getting the men open, proper screening, proper movement, proper spacing. Just anything to get the wide-open shots, just trying to stay aggressive,” said the No. 6 overall pick in the 2012 PBA rookie draft.

Ellis is confident that the 10-point victory over the Bolts can give the Gin Kings the momentum heading to their last two games as they try to make a strong push for the playoffs.

“We just have to keep communicating on offense and defense and then limiting our turnovers in the next games.”

Magaling naman talaga yang si Ellis, kelangan lang nyang maging consistent lalo na sa perimeter jump shot nya kasi mahirap pigilan yang si Ellis kung deadly din yung mga long range bomb nya dahil sa athletic sha.. kudos sa Ginebra!

MC47 really showed his leadership, which in turn motivates other players. the NSD attitude that gives the spark to teams winning performance. its a very good development for ellis dominating the outside mark. sa totoo lang mahirap talaga trabaho nya, depensa all through out sa mga snipers kaya minsan narereprimand na totoong talent nya sa court, kung ganito cya pahahalagahan ng coaches that he could also score, eh parang ang hirap na din nya bantayan. high flyer with 3's. more of a durantula kumbaga. kung gagawin nila pareha ng mga plays ng europeans, big men hitting 3's, mahirap talaga bantayan lalo na sa switches and kick-outs. madali pa makababa sa depensa dahil nakaangat na kaagad. sana madevelop din ito ni japeth.

Kahit hindi tayo nanaig sa rebounds hindi naman ganun kalaki yung difference pero sana macontrol nila yung defensive rebounds nila kasi daming OFFENSIVE rebounds ng Meralco

Ginebra 50 (Offensive 14)
Meralco 55 (Offensive 22)

Dami rin nilang minintis sa FT's (13/21) at ang dami din nilang binigay na FT's sa Meralco (24/36)
