The fans could enjoy quite many interesting games in the last round. The round ended with change at the leadership position, favorites losing the games and even winless team recording their first victory. Here is the last round review presented by ESL.

First defeat of league's leader Rain or Shine (3-1) against seventh ranked Columbian Dyip (3-2) 104-96 was the most important game of the last round. It ended at the same time the three-game winning streak of Rain or Shine. Columbian Dyip forced 21 Rain or Shine turnovers. Strangely Rain or Shine outrebounded Columbian Dyip 63-51 including a 28-15 advantage in offensive rebounds. They looked well-organized offensively handing out 22 assists. 25 personal fouls committed by Rain or Shine helped opponents get some easy free throw opportunities. Worth to mention a great performance of American power forward John Fields (205-88, college: Tennessee) who helped to win the game recording a double-double by scoring 34 points (!!!), 11 rebounds and 5 assists (on 13-of-17 shooting from the field). The other American import guard Rashawn McCarthy (185-89, college: Old Westbury) contributed with 23 points, 6 rebounds and 4 assists for the winners. American center Reginald Johnson (208-89, college: Miami, FL) replied with a double-double by scoring 30 points and 17 rebounds for Rain or Shine. Both coaches used bench players which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. Columbian Dyip moved-up to fourth place. Rain or Shine at the other side dropped to the second position with one game lost. They share it with Meralco Bolts. They were replaced at the leadership position by TNT Ka Tropa. Rain or Shine will play next round against SM Beermen trying to make it back to the top of the standings. Columbian Dyip will try to continue on its current victory against eighth ranked Hotshots in Pasig City.
SM Beermen (0-1) recorded its first loss in Manila. Hosts were defeated by sixth ranked Meralco Bolts (3-1) 93-85. Worth to mention a great performance of point guard Baser Amer (180-92) who helped to win the game recording 28 points and 8 rebounds (made all of his seven free throws) and Chris Newsome who added 23 points, 7 rebounds and 4 assists during the contest. At the losing side American forward Troy Gillenwater (205-88, college: N.Mexico St.) responded with a double-double by scoring 19 points and 14 rebounds. Both coaches tested many bench players and allowed the starting five to rest. Meralco Bolts moved-up to second place, which they share with Rain or Shine. Defending champion SM Beermen still closes the standings with one game lost. Meralco Bolts will have a break next round, and it should allow them to practice more before next game. SM Beermen's supporters look forward to an exciting derby game next round, where their team will face at home their local rival from Manila Rain or Shine.
Hotshots' fans can celebrate the first win of their team after one consecutive losses. The victory is especially important as it came on the road game in Pasig, where they defeated Global Port (2-2) 92-87 on Saturday. The winners were led by Vernon Macklin who had that evening a double-double by scoring 19 points and 13 rebounds. Even a double-double of 20 points and 11 rebounds by Sean Anthony did not help to save the game for Global Port. Both coaches allowed to play bench players in such tough game. Hotshots (1-1) left bottom position moving up to eighth place. Loser Global Port keeps the sixth position with two games lost. They share it with Phoenix. Hotshots will meet at home higher ranked Columbian Dyip (#4) in the next round and it may be quite challenging game. Global Port will play against NLEX RW in Makati City and hope to secure a win.
NLEX RW's fans can celebrate the first win of their team after three consecutive losses. The victory is especially important as it came on the road game in Quezon, where they defeated Phoenix (2-2) 120-115. Arnett Moultrie fired a double-double by scoring 37 points (!!!), 17 rebounds, 8 assists and 4 blocks for the winners. Both coaches allowed to play bench players in such tough game. NLEX RW (1-3) left bottom position moving up to tenth place. Phoenix at the other side dropped to the sixth position with two games lost. NLEX RW's next round opponent will be higher ranked Global Port (#6) in Pasig and it may be quite challenging game.
Ginebra Kings' fans can celebrate the first win of their team after two consecutive losses. They used home court advantage to defeat Blackwater Elite (0-5) 105-91 on Friday. It was a very good performance for Charles Garcia who helped to win the game recording 18 points, 8 rebounds and 4 assists. Both coaches allowed to play bench players saving starting five for next games. Ginebra Kings (1-2) left bottom position moving up to ninth place. It was Blackwater Elite's fifth loss in a row. They still close the standings with five games lost. Both teams do not play next round, which will be an opportunity for some rest.
