Dillinger refuses to call Ginebra-Meralco a ‘rivalry’ yet

BOCAUE — Despite another another hard-fought battle in a PBA Finals series, Jared Dillinger wouldn’t use the word rival to describe Ginebra and Meralco.

Not until Meralco wins on over the crowd favorites.

“Rivals? I wouldn’t call them much of a rival if they beat us twice,” said the outspoken Dillinger after the Bolts surrendered Game 7 to Ginebra, 101-96. “I mean, until we can actually win a championship against them, they’re not really a rival.”

Dillinger couldn’t help but regret to have his best performance of the Finals come too little too late, as he fired a series-best 20 points on a 5-of-10 shooting from beyond the arc, on top of five rebounds and two assists in the clincher.

“I wish my shot came a little bit sooner in this series,” he said. “But that’s the name of the game. Sometimes, your shot’s off, it’s off. You gotta stay positive and find ways to work through it. You gotta try to to help the team in other ways. It happens. My shots are finally falling tonight but it doesn’t matter, we lost. It doesn’t matter anymore. I wish we won so it would be some kind of a rivalry but we didn’t win.”

  1. and Hugnatan did, can you be more thankful, that Hugnatan stepped-up after RDO out. What if, naging failure din si Hugnatan, baka na-sweep pa kayo.
