Peter June Simon led the Llamados with 17 points and 3 rebounds while Marc Pingris contributed a double-double with 16 points and 11 rebounds. Nino “KG” Canaleta had a big 4th quarter with 10 points (3 three point shots) but was neutralized by Meralco Import Champ Oguchi who made 4 three pointers in the 4th quarter which includes the shot that gave the Bolts the lead, 87-86.
