Fastbreak: Ginebra finally breaks out of slump
2013 PBA Commissioner's Cup
Rain or Shine Elasto-Painters (99) - (97) Air21 Express
The Best: Paul Lee produced easily his best game of the current conference. The Lee-thal Weapon registered 15 points on 6-of-8 FG shooting, 7 rebounds, 7 assists, and 1 steal in 29 minutes of play. He could have easily put up a triple-double had he played at least 40 minutes. Boom.
The Worst: Niño Cañaleta was awesome from beyond the arc, making 5 of his 6 trey attempts, but he was butt-awful from the two-point area. Cañaleta missed ALL SEVEN two-point field goals in the game. Yikes.
Painters are gathering steam: This was ROS's third straight win, and though it was a little too close for comfort, the Painters will take it. Their next four assignments are tough -- Ginebra, Global Port, TNT, and then Petron. This winning run should give them enough momentum heading into those encounters, but a red flag was Bruno Sundov's subpar production -- just 3-of-9 from the field and only 5 rebounds in 27 minutes.
Bgy. Ginebra San Miguel Kings (93) - (72) Barako Bull Energy Cola
The Best: Mark Caguioa and Vernon Macklin combining for 44 points, 18 boards, 6 assists, and 4 steals. If this pair of pugs can continue to produce those numbers, then Alfrancis Chua's Gin Kings should have little trouble climbing the standings.
The Worst: After great production in each of his early games in the conference, Jonas Villanueva seems to be in a slump. After shooting 50% from the field in his first two games, his clip has sunk to just 32% in his last three. Heat check time for the former FEU standout.
Is LA's game back to its great form?: Apart from his 19-point aberration against Petron last February 17, LA Tenorio has been having a miserable Commish Cup. In this game, however, he scored 10 points, grabbed 5 rebounds, and dished out 6 dimes -- all above his current averages. Is this a sign of better things to come for Ginebra and for the Gilas playmaker? - Rappler.com
