Maliksi regrets early exit after tough stand against Meralco

Blackwater was 12 minutes away from history.

After a forcing top seeded Meralco into a do-or-die with a 92-91 stunner in Game 1, the no. 8 Elite had a real chance to advance to the PBA Governors’ Cup semifinals against Star.

All Blackwater needed was one more strong quarter to prove that a small franchise could make it big in the PBA.

The Bolts, however, had other plans and that came in the form of a 104-96 win that ousted the Elite in a heartbreaker.

“All of us want something to prove, we can’t call this overachieving if we played just the quarterfinals,” said a dejected Allein Maliksi Thursday at Smart Araneta Coliseum. “Of course you want to win the championship. So, I think there’s a reason why we were put in this situation.”
