Intal Lifts Ginebra, Talk N Text Misses Outright Semis Spot, 105-82

JC Intal earned his 2nd straight Best Player of the Game recognition as he lifts Ginebra to a 105-82 win to grab a tie on the 3rd spot with Talk N Text Tropang Texters in the second round elimination of the KFC-PBA Philippine Cup.

The Kings literally outscored the Tropang Texters in their rally in the 4th quarter, JC Intal contributed 19 points, 8 rebounds with the game's highlight -- a 360 degree power dunk under 2 minutes of the game.

It was also at the 4th quarter when Mark Caguioa, Ginebra's topgunner (reactivated from the injure list) made the crowd jump from their seats as he scored 8points, 4 of which were assists from JC Intal and Erik Menk.

Ronald Tubid added 18 points, 12 from Enrico Villanueva and 10 from Erik Menk.

Talk N Text, the league's top scoring team, to the fans surprise, was held idle as they continue to miss baskets even at the last 2 minutes point of the game.

Sunday Salvacion and Kevyn White's three points were also the game's highlights.

Talk N Text's Jimmy Alapag contributed 17, Jason Castro with 15 and Harvey Carey with 12.

Ginebra's next assignment is Alaska Aces come January 9 Saturday, at the Batangas City Sports Complex.
