“We cannot change it. We just have to move forward and prepare for the game on Sunday,” Tenorio said after the Gin Kings’ 109-82 loss.

Shooting 4-of-21 in the first quarter, Ginebra just didn’t have it from the get-go, falling behind 17-2 to start and even trailed by as much as 36, 85-49, in the third period.

“We came out flat and they were ready for us,” the veteran playmaker said....

“We were horrible all the way. We were horrible through the game, from start to finish,” he said.

Not only did the 27-point rout put the Gin Kings at a 0-1 series deficit, but the loss was also Cone’s worst Finals defeat since his Alaska squad was blown out by Gordon’s Gin, 106-79, in Game 6 of the 1997 Commissioner’s Cup....

Containing 'the Kraken,' not outrebounding him, Scottie Thompson's main concern

February 24, 2017

 For Scottie Thompson, rebounding isn't just for the sake of making his stat line look pretty; it's about helping the team win. Richard Esguerra, ABS-CBN SportsMANILA, Philippines — Few sights inspire more cheers and gasps from Ginebra fans than when Scottie Thompson, all 6-foot-1 of him, soars for a rebound over bigger and taller players.

Thompson has been a relentless rebounder since his collegiate days, when he regularly racked up triple-doubles for Perpetual Help. His athleticism and motor help, and Thompson regularly credits his teammates for boxing out opposing team's big men, but no one can deny that the guard has a nose for the ball.

He carried that uncanny rebounding ability to the PBA, where he became an immediate favorite of the "Barangay."...

Character, crowd Ginebra's advantages against powerhouse San Miguel

February 24, 2017

 Before hostilities in the PBA Philippine Cup finals begin, San Miguel and Ginebra share a friendly moment in the pre-finals press conference Wednesday.

Cone could have said a multitude of things — his wealth of experience against San Miguel coach Leo Austria's, the continued excellence of veteran point guard LA Tenorio, the threat that Sol Mercado poses on both ends of the floor, the explosiveness of Japeth Aguilar, the non-stop motor of Scottie Thompson.

He could have pointed to the pair of Mark Caguioa and Jayjay Helterbrand, whose presence continue to inspire not just the fans but also the Gin Kings themselves....
