Good fight: Durham, Meralco come up short anew but with their head held high

BOCAUE — Eventually, something’s got to give.

That was how Allen Durham described  Meralco’s 101-96 Game 7 defeat to Ginebra as the Bolts finished as bridesmaids anew for the second straight PBA Governors’ Cup Finals.

“Last year, we lost in Game 6. This year, we pushed it to Game 7,” said Durham, putting spotlight on how close Meralco was on claiming its first title in franchise history.

Durham put up another valiant effort in the final game of the season, unleashing 26 points, 24 rebounds, and nine assists as the Bolts fought back from as much as 20 points down before fizzling out in the end.

But the two-time Best Import was man enough to admit that just like last time, Ginebra was the better team.
