At last a win for Ginebra Kings!

Brgy Ginebra Kings finally ended their 5 game losing streak, 2 of which are almost won ball games, via 81-78 finish against Coca Cola Tigers! They now improve their team standings to 3-5 and end up in a three way tie with Coca Cola and Talk and Text

Jayjay Helterbrand started cold but finished strong with 28 big points, 4 assists and 2 steals. In the crucial fourth quarter he took over the game by socring pivotal and acrobatic shots, making up for firepower usually provided by injured Mark Caguioa and Junthy Valenzuela. At last the kings finished strong, unlike on their previous games against Red Bull Barakos and Rain or Shine where they collapsed on the end game.

Pacana had a good 1st quarter, scoring against almost everyone. Alex Crisano got Asi Taulava commit 3 personal fouls in the first half. Both look animated throughout the game to the delight of the crowd.

I hope Ginebra can continue to win ballgames to keep up with everyone in the team standings even with the depleted line up, its sweeter to win through Never Say Die attitude against all beefed up teams. *cough
