Batang Pier import Michael Qualls isn’t the original choice import for NorthPort yet he is one of the key additions in the team why they reached the semi-finals round.
The high-leaping import is one of the thorns for coach Tim Cone and his Gin Kings particularly in Game 1. The multi-titled head coach even described Qualls as a player who is out of this world.
Yet, the Barangay NSD able to find a solution on how to slow him down most especially that NorthPort missed several of its key components. A wrong timing that most of these bad luck came in the second round of the third conference playoffs.
“I thought we would be in trouble as (Michael) Qualls was out of this world, from another planet in the beginning. But we wear him down with our depth. Coming out of the half, they’re sluggish, and we got the ball that we really didn’t get early,” Cone said.
Apart from the usual Ginebra starting five gunners who are a potential Player of the Game finishers, the “Negros Sniper” Jeff Chan came off the bench delivered the scoring goods to wear down their opponent.
Chan made 11 points in the second frame to help his squad to get the 16-point advantage at the end of the first half.
Though Ginebra is now ahead in the best-of-five series at 2-1, coach Tim Cone still sees Game 4 is a 50-50 chance for them to get the victory.
“But it’s nice to have the head start, get ahead in the series and dictate the series. That’s always the goal, force the other team to make the adjustments,” said Cone.
