TNT one step closer to finals, beats B-Meg in Game 5

Philippine Basketball Association 36th Season
2010-2011 Philippine Cup Semifinals Game 5
B-Meg Derby Ace Llamados vs Talk N Text Tropang Texters
Talk N Text defeats Derby Ace 97-83

A big fourth quarter by Talk N Text led by Jason Castro moved the Tropang Texters closer to the finals with a 3-2 edge over Derby Ace and now the Llamados must win Game 6 and 7 to defend their All-Filipino crown. James Yap led B-Meg with 24 points but the current MVP could not give the team a crucial game 5 win in their best-of-seven semifinals.

Derby Ace had a great first quarter and led by 16 points, 30-14, but they could not contain TNT in the second half specially Castro and Peek as the Talk N Text bench outscored B-Meg, 68-11. Villanueva, Simon and Canaleta all scored in double figures but the big men, Gaco, Maierhofer, Salvador and Allado combined for only 7 points.

We hope that the Llamados will force Game 7 on friday at the Big Dome. In the other semifinals matchup, San Miguel defeats Ginebra in double overtime as they now lead the series 3-1.

    Kaya pa yan, kaya lang natalo lumambot ang mga malaki natin sa 4th quarter. Tutukan na di pa rin na shoot. Dapat kasi dunk agad para masindak sila. Nagtaka lang ako bakit matagal pinaupo si Rico and Gaco. Why not try Aducul pag nandiyan is Peek sa loob.
