Ginebra wins the Fiesta Cup Rematch

So what are you supposed to do when you're undermaned? Losing major players because of injuries? As if the loss of Caguioa, Reavis, Mamaril were not enough, Menk is back on injured list.

Coach Jong Uichico's strategy is to keep the game close and try to steal the game on the final stretch. Ginebra is playing with all heart and under a coach with a good game plan. His men followed that to a tee as the kings managed to keep within striking distance to Air21 then with three minutes remaining, Cabatu shot 2 three pointers then Tubid added another three to extend their lead to 11. They also maintained pretty good defense to limit Air21 to scoring only 2 points in the remaining 3 minutes of the game.

The best player of the game is Junjun Cabatu, who had a career high of 23 points. Basically its a team effort, Helterbrand started and finished the game hot, key contributions from Artadi, Tubid, Valenzuela, Crisano, Pacana who all chipped in for offensive contributions.

The final score is 101-92. Its fun to watch the kings without any pressure^.^
