2013 PBA Governor’s Cup Semi-Finals Recap: San Mig, Petron book seats in the Finals

8 10 2013

It is going to be a battle between sister teams as two teams from the San Miguel Corporation group made it to the finals of the 2013 PBA Governor’s Cup. San Mig Coffee eliminated the Meralco Bolts, 3-1 while the Petron Blaze Boosters crushed the hopes of the Rain or Shine Elasto Painters for a repeat with a similar 3-1 series win.

San Mig Coffee Mixers 3 – 1 Meralco Bolts

The main factor in the series was the ability of the San Mig defenders to limit Bolts import Mario West.  West was limited to a pedestrian 15.25 points per game and 28% shooting percentage.  West averaged 28.33 ppg and a decent 43% shooting in the eliminations.  James Yap, meanwhile raised his scoring average to 15 ppg from just 11.6 ppg in the eliminations. Big Game James capped his brilliant semifinal series with a 19 point performance in the deciding game.

Petron Blaza Booster 3 -1 Rain or Shine Elasto Painters

The streaking Petron Blaze Boosters somehow caught a lucky but could have been unnecessary break as they faced a depleted Rain or Shine Elasto Painters. The Painters were not the type that would just roll over but they just cannot match the intensity and the star power of the No.1 seeded Petron. June Mar Fajardo asserted his dominance in the inside as he dominated the first two games of the series with a massive double-double of 15 points and 17 rebounds in Game 1 and a more impressive 26 points and 14 rebounds  performance in Game 2.  RoS saved some pride by winning Game 3 behind the efforts of Arizona Reid and Jeffrei Chan who combined for 43 points and 22 rebounds.  Petron however, finished them off in Game 4 with a 21-point rout.  Elijah Millsap, Marcio Lassiter, Alex Cabagnot and Fajardo combined for 93 points to outscore the all the players of RoS who just finished with 89 points.
