Tim Cone apologizes to Norman Black after Game 3 spat

MANILA, Philippines – Barangay Ginebra coach Tim Cone on Thursday apologized to Meralco counterpart Norman Black, after an ill-tempered end to Game 3 of their title series in the PBA Governors' Cup.

Cone was visibly irked that the Bolts still called for a timeout even as they were up by 13 points with just 38.1 seconds left. He refused to shake hands with Black at the end of the game, and the two were seen exchanging words as they headed to the tunnel in the wake of Meralco's 94-81 victory on Wednesday night at the Araneta Coliseum.

The next morning, Cone issued an apology, saying that he "regrets" his actions.

"Yes, I was upset about the timeout that was called late in the game, but there is no one in the PBA that I respect more than Norman Black," Cone said in a report by Philippine Daily Inquirer.

"I got caught up in the moment and could have handled it differently," he acknowledged. "I apologize, and will do so to him personally."
