Alaska Trips Menk-Less Ginebra

How hard is it for Ginebra to play without Eric "Major Pain" Menk? Especially when they are dealing with Alaska, whose players are way too big than the Kings. Eric was sidelined last night in the Semifinals Game 2 when he re-injured himself with a pulled groin and veteran guard Celino Cruz, also in the injured list when he twisted his ankle. Both players, were seen in casual wear last night. The answer, very hard. It was difficult to watch, really. They lost, 90-82 and the series is now at 0-2.

Although, i must commend the other players who stepped up last night and tried really hard to help the team win. Kevyn White, yeah, the guy wearing jersey number 5, Ginebra's rookie, contributed 7pts, that includes a 3-pointer. Then after a number of attempts, Jayjay Helterbrand finally made it, fired a 3-pointer. Other players who almost sparked were, Mark Caguioa, Ronald Tubid, Willie Wilson, Cyrus Baguio, Billy Mamaril, and Sunday Salvacion. Too bad the team, despite all efforts didn't make it, leaving the crowd shocked and glued to their seats. What more can we say but, "bawi na lang next game" (let's get even next game) and, "never say die!" Hopefully, tomorrow, Ginebra is able to finally get that supernatural favor from Him. Til next entry, fellas!
