The Talk n Text Tropang Texters are still alive in the best of 7 semis of the PBA Season 37 Philippine Cup as they trounced the Petron Blaze Boosters, 111-108, in game 6.
The Tropang Texters seemed to have adjusted and they are looking good on the floor. They are threatening to go all the way in game 7. They are looking good in the sense that their leader, Jimmy Alapag, is slowly getting back to his usual good old form. He bounced back his signal as he made a big double-double 29 points and 10 assists to lead his team in winning the do-or-die game 6.
Here's what happened in game 6. They showed great persistence and willingness to win and in the final buzzer, they ended up as the winners. And they are looking to repeat that in the winner take all Game 7.
In game 6, although the Texters possessed the lead during the 1st half of the match, the Boosters were able to unlock the doors to snatch the lead from the Texters in the earlier parts of the 3rd quarter.
But TNT's instant scorers, Castro and De Ocampo managed to recover the lead to end the 3rd Q, 79-74.
The Texters continuously worked their way to victory as they fired shots to extend their lead, but again, Ildefonso, together with Cabagnot and Miranda, tried to put a stop on adding their deficit and tried to steal the lead during the last minute of the match. But they missed their attempts which lead to turnovers. So, the Texters found Alapag, without hesitation, who opened the game 7 hopes as he stretched their lead to 2 ball possession with only 17.2 secs on the game clock. That was the end of Game 6.
