PBA Finals: Ginebra Kings vs Air 21 Game 6

Ginebra's Never Say Die attitude at its finest! Ginebra ties the series 3-3 via a 80 - 75 win over the express.

The kings had a bad 0-14 start but they slowly gained back their composure and managed to cut Air 21's game high lead 17 to 3 by the end of the first half.

In the third quarter its all Alexander the Great show, he scored 20 of his 37 points plus 24 rebounds for a career high performance. I liked what he said in his post game interview, he said that he loves the team so much that he need to step up his game for his injured teammates.

The kings managed to win without the fast & the furious. Jayjay is the team's cheerleader while Mark played limited minutes because of his tendinitis injury, in layman's term his knees are still hurting. Junthy had good contributions but was thrown out of the game due to a flagrant 1 and technical foul. Sunday fouled out, but he had good defense on Air21's guards. I really like the energy brought by Artadi, Pacana and Tubid. There was a point when I think Ginebra had too many guards but now they're all proving their worth. Another player worth mentioning is former MVP Eric Menk who had 10 points, maximizing the foul troubled Thomas.

Never say die Ginebra Kings! Let's win it on Wednesday!

Sidenote:
Araneta's maximum capacity is 18,000 but 18,043 paying patrons came for the game with an amazing record of 2.5 million ticket sales!
