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.

 





2013 PBA Philippine Cup Semifinals: RoS finishes off San Mig Coffee in Game 6

After failing to finish off rivals San Mig Coffee before 2012 ended, the Rain or Shine Elasto Painters made sure that they will start the new year with a big bang by beating the last San Miguel franchise left in this year’s Philippine Basketball Association (PBA) Philippine Cup, 90-83.  The victory prevented a do or die game on Sunday.   The win also meant that the Welcoat franchise is going to its first ever Philippine Cup Finals.

The series loss is San Mig Coffee’s second straight defeat to Rain or Shine after they fell to practically the same team in last year’s Governor’s Cup finals.  Coach Yeng Guiao of the Elasto Painters has a chance to win his first ever title in the All-Filipino conference.  He lost in his other 2 appearances to Purefoods, the franchise that is now carrying the San Mig Coffee Brand.  Guiao looks to add to his 6 PBA titles and should he win the championship he will somehow complete a coaching career grand slam.

Game 6 was a very tight game as the Mixers took the lead at the end of the first two quarters.  Jeff Chan led a spirited rally in the 3rd period to turn a 4 point deficit at the half to a 3 point lead going to the payoff period.  The Painter’s hustle lead to multiple possessions and it was apparent that RoS had the fresher legs in the final quarter as they pulled away.    Peter June Simon singlehandedly tried to rally the Mixers by leading a 7-0 charge to trim a double digit deficit to just 4 points at 80-84 with less than 2 minutes left in the game.  Jervy Cruz quickly responded  for the Painters with an and 1 play to push the lead back to 7.  Chan increased the lead to 9 with less than 40 seconds to go.  Simon hit a three to make it a 2-possession game at 83-89.  The Mixers were forced to foul Beau Belga who managed to get a split for the final score as Chan stole the ball from Mark Barroca to end the game and best of seven series.

Chan led the winners with 27 big points.  He got great support from Paul Lee with 15, Jervy Cruz with 14, and Gabe Norwood with 10.  Simon topped the scoring with 29 while Marc Pingris and Joe DeVance combined for 29 for the Mixers.  James Yap had another mediocre game as he ended up with just 6 points and an unbelievable 20% Ft shooting (1 for 5). The series is probably one of the worst ever for Yap in his PBA career.

Rain or Shine will wait for the winner of the Talk ‘N Text vs. Alaska series. Game 6 of that match-up will be played tomorrow.  A game 6 victory by the defending champion Texters will pit them against the Painters for the 2013 Philippine Cup crown.

The scores:

RAIN OR SHINE 90 – Chan 27, Lee 15, Cruz 14, Norwood 10, Belga 7, Quinahan 5, Rodriguez 4, Tang 3, Arana 3, Ibanes 2, Tiu 0, Matias 0.

SANMIG COFFEE 83 – Simon 29, Pingris 15, Devance 14, Barroca 6, Intal 6, Yap 6, Reavis 4, Villanueva 3, Gaco 0, De Ocampo 0.

Quarters: 19-22, 48-52, 71-68, 90-83
