Talk and Text Secures Outright Semi-Final Seat

Talk and Text Tropang Texters concluded the elimination round of the PBA Philippine Cup with a big win and secured an outright semi-final seat when they defeated the Air21 Express, 109-108, on Christmas Day. Newly acquired Ranidel De Ocampo finished the game with 18 points, including a game-winning buzzer-beater shot with a just little over 2 ticks left in the clock. De Ocampo also had 16 rebounds. Tropang Texters was led by perennial playmaker Jimmy Alapag with 23 points. Harvey Carey and Mac-Mac Cardona added 17 and 16 points respectively.

Don Allado, in just his second game in Express uniform, had an impressive all-around game. Allado tallied 18 points, 7 rebounds, 6 assists, 3 steals and two blocks. Gary David led Air21 with 23 points while Wynne Arboleda and Egay Billones chipped in 14 and 12 markers respectively.

David had the chance to give his team a two point lead but split his charities and settled for a one point lead with 2.1 seconds left. De Ocampo sank the game-winning shot in the ensuing play as the TNT Tropang Texters defeated the Air21 Express.
