A Spark of Never Say Die Ginebra Spirit

Undermanned, Caguioa-Salvacion-Valenzuela and import less but Baranggay Ginebra kings managed to out hustle Rain or Shine for a 94-89 victory last night. The Fiesta conference defending champs managed to push their first back to back win and improve their team standings to 3-5 for the 7th place.

Major pain Eric Menk, PBA's one time MVP, scored 24 points with 9 rebounds to seal his major comeback from an injury. Jayjay Helterbrand is back on doing what he does best, sharing the ball (now that Nealy is out of the picture), at one point on the game, Mr Fast had more assists than the entire ROS team. JC Intal, Artadi and Tubid also had their contributions but there were instances that as a Ginebra fan, you will miss the big scoring and overall game intensity, a hole made because of Mark Caguioa's absence. He was rumored to get back after holy week but that remains to be a rumor until now.

I hope that the kings will get their major players back and peak at the right time to defend their crown!
