2012 PBA Philippine Cup Roundup: November 16, 2012 - Nov 17, 2012

Talk N Text and San Mig Coffee remained on top of the standings after they beat separate foes in the 2012 PBA Philippine Cup yesterday.

The San Mig Coffee Mixers relied on their hot shooting to overwhelm an ice cold Barako Bull side. Backcourt buddies James Yap and PJ Simon combined for 42 points and 16 rebounds for SMC, which shot 51% from the field. Rafi Reavis and JC Intal anchored the interior for the Mixers with 12 and 11 points respectively.

The Energy Colas shot just 38% from the floor, and they also got outplayed by SMCs point guards, Jonas Villanueva and Mark Barroca, both of whom combined for 10 assists. Ronald Tubid and Leo Najorda were the only bright spots for Barako Bull with 17 and 10 markers respectively.

In the other game, the Talk N Text Tropang Texters reasserted their mastery over sister squad Meralco, 109-98. Despite Sol Mercado exploding for 28 points and Reynel Hugnatan registering a double-double (17 points and 10 ribbies), the Texters were able to pull out the win. This was mainly due to a big fourth quarter, where TNT tossed in 30 markers.

Six Texters finished in double digits, led by Jayson Castros 23 points, 5 rebounds, and 4 assists, while Kelly Williams had 19 points and 6 boards. The other players who scored 10 or more for coach Norman Black were Ryan Reyes, Ranidel De Ocampo, Jared Dillinger, and Larry Fonacier.

Both teams shot well from the field, but TNTs 56% clip was just too much for Meralco, which fell to solo fourth in the standings.

Talk N Text is still number one with an 8-2 record, while San Mig Coffee is just a game behind them at 7-2.

Game Recaps:
SAN MIG COFFEE MIXERS over BARAKO BULL ENERGY COLAS, 93-73

James Yap scored 22 points and grabbed nine rebounds to lead the piping hot San Mig Coffee to its fifth straight win at the expense of Barako Bull, 93-73, Friday at the Ynares Center in Antipolo City.

Peter June Simon added 20 points and seven rebounds for the rampaging Mixers, who improved their win-loss record to 7-2, moving into a tie for first place with the Talk N Text squad seeing action later in the evening.

Barako Bull, in disarray with the departure of former coach Junel Baculi and a knee injury to main man Enrico Villanueva, kept in step with San Mig Coffee in the first half to tie the game at 36-all.

With their top guns ablaze, the Mixers clamped down on Barako Bull, whom they defeated by just a single point in their first meeting on a game-saving swipe by Rafi Reavis.

We played our worst defensive game against Barako in our first meeting. We won by a skin of our teeth with Rafi knocking the ball out of the rim, said San Mig Coffee coach Tim Cone.

After Doug Kramer scored on a putback that gave Barako Bull its last taste of the lead at 55-54, San Mig Coffee held the Energy Colas without a field goal in the last four minutes.

Yap, who scored just four points before the break, exploded for 18 points in the second half. With the two-time Most Valuable Player leading the charge, San Mig Coffee broke loose for 31 third quarter points to take a 67-57 lead at the end of the period.

The Energy Colas were still in striking distance early in the fourth quarter, 69-63, before back-to-back three-pointers from Simon and Yap put the game away for the Mixers.

Those started a dizzying 14-0 run that gave the Mixers their biggest lead, 83-63, with still 5:32 remaining in the game.

The loss dropped Barako Bulls record to 3-7.

SMC 93- Yap 22, Simon 20, Reavis 12, Intal 11, Devance 7, Villanueva 5, Barroca 4, Gonzales 4, De Ocampo 4, Ramos 2, Ponferrada 2, Pacana 0, Pingris 0.
BAR 73- Tubid 17, Najorda 10, Yap 9, Seigle 9, Anthony 8, Alvarez 6, Kramer 6, Ballesteros 4, Pennisi 4, Co 0, Marcelo 0, Cervantes 0.
QS: 10-15, 36-36, 67-57, 93-73

TALK N TEXT TROPANG TEXTERS over MERALCO BOLTS, 109-98

With its offense in high gear, Talk N Text ripped Meralco, 109-98, Friday night at the Ynares Center to notch its eighth win of the PBA Philippine Cup.

Offense is good today, said Talk N Text coach Norman Black. We created opportunities finding the gaps. This is really a good game offensive game for us, probably the best for the year.

Six players finished in double figures for the Tropang Texters led by Jayson Castro, who unloaded 23 points, five rebounds and four assists.

Kelly Williams added 19 points and six rebounds, Ranidel de Ocampo made all but one attempt from the field for 16 points, while Ryan Reyes had 12 points and eight rebounds.

Meralco stayed within striking distance for most of the game, and were down by only three points, 88-85, early in the fourth quarter. But a Castro three-pointer kicked off an 11-4 run capped by a Larry Fonacier drive to put the game away for the Tropang Texters.

With the win, Talk N Text stayed in first place in the standings with an 8-2 win-loss record.

The loss was the fourth in nine games for the Bolts, who still stayed on fourth spot. The defeat also continued Meralcos losing streak at the venue, where the Bolts have lost their past six games.

I really dont have positive vibes playing in this venue, said Meralco coach Ryan Gregorio, who said he has had negative feelings about Ynares Center since his former player at Purefoods, Eugene Tejada, suffered a career-ending injury there.

TNT 109- Castro 23, Williams 19, De Ocampo 16, Reyes 12, Dillinger 11, Fonacier 10, Carey 9, Peek 8, Alapag 1, Raymundo 0, Gamalinda 0, Aban 0, Alvarez 0.
MER 98- Mercado 28, Hugnatan 17, Hodge 14, Reyes 14, Salvacion 9, Borboran 6, Cardona 4, Ross 3, Buenafe 3, Nabong 0, Bulawan 0.
QS: 27-25, 50-46, 79-76, 109-98
