Game Recaps:
MERALCO BOLTS over GLOBAL PORT BATANG PIER, 101-92

This time, Sol Mercado made sure to get the job done.

Mercado, who finished with 24 points and nine assists, scored the biggest baskets to lead the Meralco Bolts to a 101-92 triumph over the GlobalPort Batang Pier Friday night at the SMART-Araneta Coliseum.

The Bolts survived the early onslaught by Gary David, who scored 25 of his 33 points in the first half, and the late brilliance of Rey Guevarra, who scored 18 of his 20 points in the second half.

Mac Cardona led the way with 26 points for Meralco, while rookie Kelly Nabong had a career game with 18 points and 11 rebounds.

But it was Mercado who drilled in a cold-blooded triple from the left wing to beat the 24-second shot clock and put the Bolts on safer ground, 91-83, with 2:35 left in the game.

The spitfire guard then put together six more points to help put the game away for the Bolts, which won for the sixth time in 10 games.

Mercado also helped Meralco force overtime against Rain or Shine last Wednesday, but the Bolts succumbed to the Elasto Painters in overtime after holding a 26-point third quarter lead.

Meralco made sure there would be a different result against the Batang Pier.

Sols game was really so balanced in this game. We just have to make sure to give him enough rest to give us the finishing kick. Its a very gratifying win after an emotional loss to Rain or Shine, said Gregorio, who asked his coaching staff to play a more active role in their game against the Batang Pier because he felt he was like he was hit with a haymaker coming off a loss to Rain or Shine where his team squandered a 26-point lead.

I have to ask help from my coaches. I thank God I have a solid coaching staff which helped me all the way. When you lose like that against Rain or Shine, you hardly have enough sleep. Its great to win again, which solidified our spot for No. 4.

Gregorio also attributed the teams win to the players mentality to play Meralcos brand of basketball.

Humility was a key factor in our success today. We should know to handle our success. Bully basketball is not part of our vocabulary. Were winning games because of our tough defense and solid basketball, said Gregorio.

MER 101- Cardona 26, Mercado 24, Nabong 18, Buenafe 14, Hugnatan 10, Hodge 2, Ross 2, Borboran 2, Salvacion 2, Reyes 1, Artadi 0.
GLO 92- David 33, Guevarra 20, Manuel 15, Miller 7, Al-Hussaini 5, Mandani 4, Deutchman 3, Vanlandingham 3, Salvador 2, Lingganay 0, Yee 0, Vergara 0, Adducul 0.
QS: 22-21, 48-42, 70-66, 101-92

SAN MIG COFFEE MIXERS over AIR 21 EXPRESS, 89-80

The San Mig Coffee Mixers bounced back from an embarrassing loss with a solid win over the Air 21 Express, 89-80, Friday at the SMART-Araneta Coliseum.

James Yap scored 16 of his 20 points in the first half, while Mark Barroca added 12 points, five rebounds, and two assists for the Mixers, who were coming off a 29-point loss to Talk N Text last Wednesday.

Its a good bounce-back game for us. We got embarrassed big time, and we figured it will be difficult to recover from a loss like that. Its harder for management, fans, and coaches. But a 30-point loss is the same as one-point loss. We were concerned about how were going to respond, said Cone.

We didnt have time to dwell about the loss to Talk N Text because were up against Air 21. We used the loss to Talk N Text as a way to propel us, just like what we did when we lost to Powerade, which led us eventually to winning the Commissioners Cup last season.

Up by only six points following KG Canaletas basket, 82-76, San Mig Coffee tightened its screws on Air 21 to end the match.

No Air 21 player was able to score until Mark Isip hit a garbage basket with only 23.9 seconds to go and San Mig Coffee up by 13 point, 89-76.

Jonas Villanueva chipped in 11 points and Rafi Reavis contributed 10 for the Mixers, who forged a tie for second spot with Rain or Shine at 8-3.

Air 21 suffered its second straight loss and seventh in 11 games.

SMC 89- Yap 20, Barroca 12, Villanueva 11, Reavis 10, Simon 9, Pingris 8, Devance 7, Intal 6, De Ocampo 6, Gonzales 0.
A21 80- Canaleta 18, Sena 10, Isip 10, Cortez 9, Wilson 8, Custodio 8, Reyes 7, Ritualo 6, Baclao 4, Atkins 0, Arboleda 0.
QS: 25-21, 51-45, 73-66, 89-80
