Giants Wins Game 6, Forces Game 7

After the first six games, The Sta. Lucia Realtors and Purefoods Tender Juicy Giants are on a deadlock with three wins each. Purefoods won last night 89-81 against Sta. Lucia to guarantee a winner take all game. They will play the deciding Game 7 of the PBA All-Filipino Cup Finals Series on Sunday.

Purefoods Tender Juicy Giants The Realtors were up 3-2 in the series but they lost last night because of James Yap’s fourth quarter onslaught. Yap scored 20 big points in the fourth quarter alone and finished with game-high 30 points. Yap struggled in the early goings but picked up when his team needed him most. To make up for Yap’s offensive struggle, Marc Pingris stepped up his game and had 9 points and 13 rebounds in the first half alone. Pingris went on to finish the game with 19 points and career-high 21 rebounds. Kerby Raymundo finished with a career high 11 assists to go with his 9 points and 6 rebounds.

Veteran Realtor Dennis Espino finished with 22 points for his squad. Paolo Mendoza and Ryan Reyes each had 11 points. Realtors standout Kelly Williams grabbed 17 boards but finished with only 9 points, his lowest scoring output in the last 26 games.

The Giants and Realtors will meet again on Sunday for the winner take all game at the Big Dome at around 6:30 in the evening.
