With 37 seconds remaining in the fourth quarter of Game 3, the score was 100-97 in favor of Talk ‘N Text. Then at 24 seconds mark, KaTropa’s RR Pogoy got fouled and was sent to the line for two charity shots which could stretch the advantage of the TNT to five points.
However, the Cebuano hotshot failed to convert his two free-throws which eventually opened the door for Meralco to make a comeback.
The Bolts set their play and tried to find an open shooter. The ball was at the hands of Bolts’ import Allen Durham and suddenly found an open teammate in the corner for a potential three-pointer.
“I had the ball and saw a white jersey from my peripheral and Cliff was over there with his hands up. I don’t know what happened but I saw it so I just tried to swing the ball, (but) he wasn’t in the playing court so it happened,” said Durham.
Unfortunately, Hodge wasn’t part of the Meralco players at that instance and it was an automatic turnover. That mistake became a 1-2 series score and the advantage is now with the Talk ‘N Text.
“I was hoping someone’s gonna pull a shot, hoping we would’ve made a shot to put it on overtime. AD saw my jersey and he thought I was on the court so it was my fault,” said Hodge.
“It’s part of the game, sometimes things like that happen. We’ll just try to bounce back and give it all we got on Saturday. They made their adjustments, we’ll make ours and hopefully, we can push it to Game 5,” he added.
For the KaTropa, clearly they were able to escape Game 3 with a win as their foreign hire was heavily guarded. In the first half, the former Houston Rockets only managed to score two points but his defense remained to be consistent.
Most of the scoring load was shared by his local teammates.
“On defense naman andun siya. Kaya lang sana yung outside shots niya gumama na ulit (in Game 4),” said Castro referring to their import.
“Everytime maganda ang depensa namin, parang madali na sa amin. So siguro yun ang pinaka-key sa amin, doon kami nakaka-execute ng plays namin. Pag naka-stop kami, yun ang main reasons kaya kami nanalo. So going to Game 4, make sure ma-match namin yung energy nila from the start at the same time ma-execute yung defensive scheme namin,” the Blur added.
