2012 PBA Philippine Cup Finals Game Three Roundup - Jan 13, 2013

Chris Tiu played a heckuva game trying to lift the Painters to their first Philippine Cup Finals win, but they just couldnt keep up with the more poised Texters in the endgame.

Behind the hot sniping of Jimmy Alapag, coach Norman Blacks wards garnered a commanding 3-0 lead in the championship series. For the third game in a row, TNT stifled the offense of ROSs top two guards Paul Lee and Jeff Chan. Both guy shot just 4-of-17 form the floor as the Painters struggled to get things going AGAIN.

Coach Yeng Guiaos boys did hold the lead going into and early in the fourth quarter, but they just couldnt close it out against a team seeking its third Philippine Cup in a row. Tiu led the Painters with 14 points, while Jervy Cruz, Larry Rodriguez, and Ryan Araa each scored 10 or more, but even their production couldnt make up for the anemic performance of their ROSs other big guns. Beau Belga, JR Quiahan, and Gabe Norwood all combined for just 15 points on 5-of-18 shooting.

In contrast, TNT shot better. Despite trailing in the rebounds department, the Texters were still able to wrest control of the game because of their accurate sniping. They made 9 treys compared to only 4 for ROS.

Game 4 is on Wednesday, and if the Painters are still aching to get back in this one, then all their scorers have to be on-target, else they get swept by the wayside literally.

Game Recaps:
TALK N TEXT TROPANG TEXTERS over RAIN OR SHINE ELASTO-PAINTERS, 89-80

Mighty Mouse came to save the day.

With his team stuck in a dogfight, Jimmy Alapag hit two booming three-pointers that allowed Talk N Text to break loose and defeat Rain or Shine, 89-80, in Game Three of the Philippine Cup finals Sunday at the SMART-Araneta Coliseum.

With the win, the Tropang Texters moved one step away from sweeping the series and winning their third straight all-Filipino crown.

We put ourselves in a good position to win a championship, said Talk N Text coach Norman Black, who has a chance to win his 11th PBA title in his return to the pro league after leading Ateneo to five straight UAAP championships.

If it ends up being a sweep, then so be it.

The game was tied at 76-all before Alapag, who finished with 15 points and four assists, had back-to-back hits from beyond the arc to break the game open. Those shots kicked off a 13-4 windup that sealed the game for the two-time defending champions.

Rain or Shine looked poised to get their first series victory, taking a 70-61 lead early in the fourth quarter behind Chris Tiu, who led the Elasto Painters with 14 points.

But their top guns Paul Lee and Jeff Chan were miserable from the field for the third straight game. Lee scored just seven points on 3-of-12 shooting, while Jeff Chan scored just three points after making just one shot in five attempts.

Jayson Castro led all scorers after scoring 12 of his 19 points in the first half.

Talk N Text can seal the deal Wednesday in Game Four, also at the Big Dome.

The scores:

TNT 89- Castro 19, Alapag 15, De Ocampo 13, Reyes 11, Williams 11, Carey 6, Dillinger 5, Fonacier 5, Peek 4, Aban 0.
ROS 80- Tiu 14, Cruz 11, Rodriguez 10, Arana 10, Ibanes 8, Lee 7, Belga 6, Norwood 5, Quinahan 4, Chan 3, Tang 2.
QS: 22-20, 42-39, 61-65, 89-80

Charles Rhodes gets MVP of the Week award for Filipino PBA - 5 days ago
Experienced American Charles Rhodes (203-F/C-85) had a very impressive game in the last round for SM Beermen and that's him to receive a Asia-basket.com Player of the Week award for round 5. The 31-year old power forward had a double-double of 20 points and eighteen rebounds, while his team outclassed Mahindra (#11, 1-6) with 29-point margin 109-80. SM Beermen is placed at 7th position in Filipino PBA. They would have been even better if they hadn't lost that single game earlier this seas...   [read more]

Tim Cone
PBA Coach being recommended for Knicks staff - 7 days ago
The name of Barangay Ginebra San Miguel Kings coach Tim Cone was being floated to the National Basketball Association's (NBA) New York Knicks president Phil Jackson to be part of the teams' coaching staff. The most accomplished coach in the Philippine Basketball Association (PBA) with 19 titles under his belt including two grand slams was recommended by American sportswriter and book author Ronald Lazenby to the Knicks due to his deep understanding of running the Triangle (Triple Post) O...   [read more]

Greg Smith
Smith number one in Philippines for round 4 - 11 days ago
American Center Greg Smith (208-C-91) had a great game in the last round for Blackwater, receiving a Asia-basket.com Player of the Week award for round 4. The 25-year old player had a double-double of 40 points and 19 rebounds, while his team beat Globalport (1-4) 118-113. The game rather meaningless between the teams, which do not have any influence on top of the standings. Blackwater is placed at 9th position in Filipino PBA. Too late to salvage the team, which is currently ranked such...   [read more]
