Never say die Gin Kings, did it again! Escaping a thriller in Smart Araneta Coliseum winning over the Shopinas.com clicker in overtime 94-90.
This is the second straight game that the Gin Kings pulled off and incredible finish.
Like their game last Saturday, the Gin Kings were down by five in the final minute of the regulation but manages to come back and send the game to overtime.
It was Jay-jay Helterbrand’s three point shot that sent the game to an extra five minute.
“Broken play na iyon. Jayjay Helterbrand was supposed to go somewhere else. Pero na-deny si Mark (Caguioa) and Jayjay had to take the shot,” said Ginebra’s Coach, Siot Tanquingcen
The Clickers had the chance to seal the game, but just like the Tigers they missed four straight free throws allowing the Kings to steal this game.
Ginebra improved to 3-2 win-loss card, while the Clickers remained winless in five outings.
The Kings rode their momentum in the overtime period scoring the first seven points from Caguiao’s layup, KG’s three point and another Caguiao’s lay-up.
