The Batang Pier caught the Gin Kings by surprise in Game 1 by winning the game with a whopping 24-point victory.
In the first half, NorthPort head coach Pido Jarencio unleashed its import Michael Qualls who delivered more than 20 points. Yet, in the following half, Jarencio’s counterpart coach Tim Cone made his adjustment and limited the high-energetic import production.
In a short while that worked for the Gin Kings as they cut the double-digit deficit to only a point, 62-63 with less than five minutes remaining in the third quarter. That also sparked the sixth-man of Ginebra which is the crowd inside the Big Dome that started a loud chant “defense”.
Refusing to give up their early huge lead, coach Jarencio pressed a new button to start a new offensive play and that’s when he entered Garvo Lanete in the game.
Lanete who is only averaging less than 20 minutes a game came in well prepared and gave his coach an instant payback by delivering 24 points while most of his damage came from beyond the three-point arc where he shoots 6-of-9.
“They beat us in all facets of the game so we gotta come back better the next time,” said Cone.
