San Miguel avoids late collapse, cools down Ginebra

The San Miguel Beermen weathered a huge fourth quarter storm by Barangay Ginebra San Miguel to bag a 107-103 win and stop the Gin Kings’ hot winning run in the Oppo PBA Governors’ Cup on Sunday at SMART-Araneta Coliseum.

New import Terrence Watson impressed in his league debut, scoring 28 points and 17 boards while throwing down rim-rattling dunks as the Beermen (5-3) put an end to the seven-game winning streak of Ginebra (7-2).

San Miguel unleashed its juggernaut offense in the first half, with Watson shocking the Ginebra defense with his inside play.

Santos and Ross also went lights out in the perimeter, combining for 32 points in the first half as the Beermen controlled the game by establishing an imposing 59-33 lead.

San Miguel was then threatened by Ginebra in the fourth quarter, with Kevin Ferrer and Japeth Aguilar leading an 11-2 run that pulled the Gin Kings to within 13 points.
