In a team chock-full of Fil-Ams, two locally bred stars have come to the fore to spearhead the Tropang Texters 2-0 series lead over the Elasto-Painters.

In Game One, it was Larry Fonaciers dagger trey that sent ROS packing, while here in Game Two it was the hot shooting of Ranidel De Ocampo that spotted the Texters with a commanding series advantage and got the defending Philippine Cup Champs within two wins of a three-peat.

De Ocampo shot 9-of-17 from the field to finish with a personal conference-high 24 points while also adding 9 rebounds, 4 assists, and 2 steals. He dominated from practically everywhere on the floor, hitting 3 triples in the process. Jayson Castro backed him up with 21 points while Kelly Williams finished with a dozen markers.

Once again, the TNT defense stifled the usually explosive shooting of the Painters, who were limited to just 36% FG shooting including just 6-of-23 from beyond the arc. Smart Gilas shooter Jeff Chan had another miserable outing, making just 3 of his 11 field goal attempts to end up with only 9 points. JR Quiahan and Paul Lee led ROSs losing cause with 16 and 15 points respectively. Coach Yeng Guiaos boys face a virtual must-win situation in Game Three if they want to really get back in this series.

Game Recaps:
TALK N TEXT TROPANG TEXTERS over RAIN OR SHINE ELASTO-PAINTERS, 89-81

Ranidel de Ocampo was a one-man wrecking crew for Talk N Text in Game Two of the Philippine Cup finals.

The versatile forward finished with a season-high 24 points, grabbed nine rebounds, and made all but one of his three-point attempts, powering the Tropang Texters to an 89-81 triumph over the Rain or Shine Elasto Painters Friday night at the SM Mall of Asia Arena.

With the win, the Tropang Texters posted a 2-0 series lead, moving halfway to completing history by becoming the first team to win the Philippine Cup crown in three straight seasons.

But for Talk N Text coach Norman Black, going two up isnt an occasion to celebrate just yet.

Were up 2-0, but as far as Im, concerned, it takes four wins to win the championship, said Black, whose Tropang Texters know their lead isnt a safe one. In 2009, Talk N Text came back from the same deficit in their finals series against Alaska to win the Philippine Cup.

But the squad certainly looks poised to repeat if De Ocampo could keep up his performance. The former St. Francis of Assisi star did his damage from all over the court, posting up smaller defenders and drawing out Rain or Shines big men with 3-of-4 shooting from beyond the arc.

He scored six of the last nine points to preserve the win for Talk N Text, who could go up 3-0 in Game Three set Sunday at the SMART-Araneta Coliseum.

Ranidel is our best post-up player, our best three-point shooter and one of our best big men, said Black.

Hes been doing that the entire year. He gave us leadership, showed composure and played very physical. He made some big shots for us down the stretch.

TNT 89- De Ocampo 24, Castro 21, Williams 12, Fonacier 7, Dillinger 6, Aban 6, Reyes 4, Carey 4, Alapag 3, Peek 2, Raymundo 0, Ferriols 0.
ROS 81- Quinahan 16, Lee 15, Cruz 12, Norwood 9, Chan 9, Arana 9, Matias 4, Belga 3, Rodriguez 2, Ibanes 2, Tiu 0, Tang 0.
QS: 23-15, 44-35, 63-63, 89-81
